It was a landmark year for the UC Davis women’s soccer team, and the heart of that team was senior defender Aisha Lott.
While the Milpitas, Calif. native scored just one goal this season, the majority of her work was done stopping opponents from finding the net.
Her defense and leadership helped spark the Aggies to their first ever Big West Conference tournament appearance this season — despite being picked to finish eighth in the conference’s preseason poll.
Lott was a central feature in the UC Davis defense that allowed just 1.32 goals per-game this season.
For her efforts, Lott was awarded first-team All-Big West honors for the second time in her career.
With Lott now graduating, UC Davis will have quite a void to fill in its back-line next season.
