Q&A with Emily Anderson
Soccer freshman Emily Anderson, a native of Austin and graduate of Westlake High School, etched her name in the UT statistical sheet, registering the first assist of her career on junior Leslie Imber's first-half goal in Sunday's 3-3 tie with Big 12 Conference foe Oklahoma. The first-year Longhorn has seen action in 11 games in 2006 with one start, coming against Nicholls State on Sept. 15. In that match, she took a season-high four shots with one attempt on goal.
