Columbia, S.C. – South Carolina sophomore midfielder Jessi Swaim has been named to the 2004 SEC Women’s Soccer Good Works Team announced on Tuesday afternoon. Swaim, a sophomore experimental psychology major, has been involved in many community service projects.

Swaim participated in MLK Service Day, and volunteered at numerous elementary schools including Hood Street, White Knoll, and Taylor. A native of Ames, Iowa, Swaim has also served as a member of the Student Athlete Advisory Committee for two consecutive years (2003-04 & 2004-05).

In addition to her work off the field, Swaim had success on the field in her second season with two goals and a team-high six assists for 10 points on the season. Swaim played in all 20 matches for Carolina this year.

The SEC sponsors Good Works Teams for all 20 league sponsored sports. The Good Works Team looks to highlight an athlete from each school who gives back to their community in superior service efforts. This is the second year of the Good Works Teams being selected. Amanda Thurber was named to last year’s team as representative of the USC women’s soccer team.
