MACON, Ga. - Only one more week remains in Atlantic Sun Women's Soccer non-conference action with 15 games scheduled this weekend to close the non-conference season.

Seven A-Sun squads have improved their non-conference winning percentage compared to their 2012 results.

It's the year of the freshman in A-Sun Women's Soccer as a freshman leads the league in ten of 15 statistical categories

Lipscomb's freshman Ellen Lundy and the Eagles freshman Tabby Tindell lead the league in points as Lundy has 19 points and Tindell has 13 on the season.
