DALLAS (SMU) - Three Mustangs received Preseason First Team All-Conference recognition from CollegeSportsMadness.com, the website announced Tuesday. Rikki Clarke, Shelby Redman and Courtney Smith all received acknowledgment heading into the program's first campaign as a member of the American Athletic Conference.

The Mustangs open their season with a home match against the University of Lousiana at Monroe on Aug. 23. SMU visits Columbia, Mo. for a road exhibition tune-up against Missouri on Saturday at 6:30 p.m. CT.

Clarke, a junior midfielder, was fourth on the team in points last season with 12. She scored the game-winning goals in SMU's win over No. 8 UCF on Oct. 7 and in the team's first round win over Rice in the Conference USA Tournament. Clarke received Second Team All-C-USA honors and made the All-Tournament team.

Redman, a junior forward, tied for the team lead in goals with nine, good for fourth in the C-USA. Redman led the Mustangs with 25 points, which tied for the third-highest total in the C-USA. The Austin, Texas native also made the Second Team All-C-USA squad.

Smith, a senior defender, led SMU with 10 assists, tying for the C-USA lead and ranking 20th in the NCAA in that category. Smith started all 21 games and earned Third Team All-C-USA recognition.
