GEORGETOWN, Texas (SMU) - Two SMU 2013 recruits, Taylor Jackson and Taylor Barg, helped lead Plano West High School to its second consecutive Texas Class 5A title on Saturday afternoon, beating Southlake Carroll 4-1.

After a scoreless first half, Plano West opened the floodgates and scored four goals in the second half, with the third tally coming off a header by Jackson off a corner kick that was dropped right to her at the far post.

The team finishes the season with a dominant record of 28-0-2. The duo has not only helped lead Plano West consecutive state titles, but they also produced a regional championship in 2011, an area championship in 2009-10 and 2011-12 and a bi-district title in 2009-10 and 2011-12. Barg and Jackson are longtime teammates with a friendship that dates back to fifth grade.

Former Mustang Carley Phillips has been the head coach of the Wolves for the past two seasons. Phillips played at SMU from 2005-08, earning First Team All-Conference USA honors in 2005 and 2006. Phillips was also named to the All-Region team in 2006 and 2007.
