Former area standout makes All-SEC preseason soccer team 

By Jeff Greer

Sammy Towne was a star at Suncoast. Now she’s making waves on the college level.

The Royal Palm Beach native made the All-SEC preseason soccer team. Towne, a 5-foot-7 defender at Auburn, shares the list with four other Floridians. Towne is the only native Floridian not playing for the University of Florida. UF had five players on the team, more than any other school. 

Towne, a senior, made the All-SEC second team and the SEC Tournament first team last season. She helped lead Auburn to a berth in the NCAA tournament, too.
