Trevecca came into the 2006-2007 women’s soccer season after posting a program-record eight wins in 2005. Head Coach Mark Champion, in his third season at the helm, led his team in the newly re-vamped TranSouth Conference, a conference which boasted the defending NAIA National Champion.
Trevecca started the season with a home match against Brescia University, taking a 1-0 win from the Lady Bearcats behind freshman Kassie Evick’s first goal as a Trojan. In Trevecca’s next two games, the women were unable to find the net, dropping a 1-0 decision to Shorter College and notching a scoreless tie with Asbury College before heading west for a tough two-game road trip to Oregon.
The Oregon trip started with a 5-0 loss to NAIA No. 6 Concordia-Portland. Champion and his team rallied and claimed a double-overtime win over Warner Pacific University by the count of 3-2. The win started a four-match unbeaten streak, which included wins over Oakland City University (1-0) and Crichton College (2-0), and a 2-2 tie with the University of the Cumberlands.
The Trojans faced a tough stretch with a pair of one-goal losses to No. 12 Bethel College (1-0) and a talented Union University team. Trevecca also fell 5-1 to No. 4 Martin Methodist then saw Cumberland University cancel their season due to injuries. With a 4-5-2 overall record and a 1-3 TranSouth record the Trojans posted 2-2-1 mark in their last five regular season matches and entered the postseason with a record of 6-7-3, including a 3-4 record in the TranSouth.
Trevecca drew Union University in the first round of the TranSouth tournament, and the Trojans fell to the Bulldogs 5-0, ending the season.
Kimberly Goodson, who finished 10th in the NAIA in saves per game at 7.56 per contest, Heather Martin, and Heather Olson all made the all-TranSouth Second Team. Goodson, Olsen, Ashley Harden, Lilian Mwangi, Jessica Blankenship, Anne Opana, and Katie Wilson all made the TranSouth all-Academic Team.
