It was announced Monday that two members of the Southern Miss Soccer team had been named to the 2013 All Conference USA team.

She was a one-time C-USA Offensive Player of the Week and was named Co-MVP of the Mississippi State Bulldog Classic Tournament.
Roberts also topped the conference in overall shots (81) and shots per game (4.05) and was tied for ninth in overall assists (5) to go along with three game-winning goals.
Taylor, a native of Calgary, Alberta, Canada, led Conference USA in overall saves (128), save percentage (.831) and saves per game (7.11). She was named to the 2013 Mississippi State All-Tournament team and appeared in 19 matches with 14 starts.
