— Missouri junior midfielder Kaysie Clark was chosen to the first team All-Southeastern Conference women’s soccer team, which was released Monday.

Clark, a former star at Liberty, led the Tigers with a team-high six goals and added three assists, giving her a team-best 15 points.

She scored the game-winning goal Sept. 29 in a 1-0 upset against then-No. 7 Florida and also tallied a goal against then-No. 9 Baylor this season.

Clark had two shots, including one on goal Monday as Missouri’s season ended with a 4-0 loss against Arkansas in the first round of the SEC Tournament in Orange Beach, Ala.

Clark, who was a unanimous selection to the All-Big 12 Newcomer team in 2011 as a freshman, has 12 goals and 11 assists in 59 career games, including 56 starts, during her college career.

During her Liberty career, Clark was an All-Metro selection all four seasons, including first-team honors as a junior and senior. She capped her career by scoring 22 goals with 21 assists in helping the Blue Jays repeat as Missouri Class state champions in 2011.

Clark’s former Liberty teammate, Texas A&M junior forward Shea Groom, also was chosen to the All-SEC first team.

Groom, a second-team All-SEC performer as a sophomore, scored 12 goals with four assists despite missing two matches due to injury. She has five game-winning goals on the season.

Here is the complete All-SEC women’s soccer team.
