The Trojans’ third season of play included a competitive, fun, and exciting brand of soccer. The 2002-2003 Trevecca team earned six wins, including its biggest win in school history.
The Trojans opened the season with a 2-1 win at Campbellsville University and two weeks later defeated Asbury College 4-2. On September 28 the Lady Trojans defeated Fisk 19-0 to earn their largest victory ever. Eleven different players scored for Trevecca, including Tori Sanchez and Karen Francis who each posted a hat trick, scoring three goals a piece.
