Texas A&M Soccer Wins One Last Big 12 Championship

For the 12th time in 16 seasons, the Texas A&M women's soccer team won a Big 12 championship. Sunday, the Aggies beat Oklahoma State, giving the Cowgirls just their second loss of the season.

The level of success the Aggies had in the Big 12 cannot be understated. Head coach G Guerrieri turned his team into a powerhouse, recruiting the best players from Texas and beyond and constantly contending for not just a good season, but for a deep trip into the NCAA tournament.

When the Aggies move to the SEC, that job will get a little tougher. The SEC not only has Florida as a perennial tournament team, but that conference has seen four different teams win the league tournament in the past five years. South Carolina, LSU, Tennessee and even Kentucky and Auburn could all make things tougher for A&M.

Will that be a good thing? Probably. Competition breeds better play and it looks like the soccer team will find just as big a jump in competition level moving conferences as every other sport.
