Heckendorn Earns Preseason Honor

Aug. 9, 2017

FORT WORTH -- Senior Emma Heckendorn was one of 11 student-athletes named to the 2017 Big 12 Preseason All-Conference squad as voted upon by league coaches. The accolade is the first of her career and the fifth straight year TCU has had a representative on the preseason team.

Heckendorn stared 19 games last season in 2016. Her 15 points ranked fourth on the team. She set a school record with nine assists on the year and contributed three goals. She was named a first-team all-conference performer at the conclusion of the season in addition to earning NSCAA third-team All-Central Region honors.

Over the course of her career, Heckendorn has played in and started 54 games. Three of her 12 career goals have been game-winners. She has steadily climbed the career charts, ranking third all-time with 16 assists. Heckendorn needs just two assists to tie the school career record held by Allison Calleri (1996-99). Her next point will move her into the top-10 all-time scorers in program history.

TCU is slated to open the season at home for the first time since the 2008 campaign. The Horned Frogs will host ULM on Friday, Aug. 18 at 7 p.m. under the lights at Garvey-Rosenthal Soccer Stadium.
