With four games left to play in the 2013 Big South Women's Soccer Championship, the conference released its inaugural Big South All-Decade teams, this week. Part of the Big South's 30th anniversary celebration, the all-decade teams were determined by conference administrators and fan voting.

The sister duo of Nancy and Jenny Davis were selected to the 2000s women's soccer all-decade team. During their collegiate careers, Nancy and Davis were instrumental in transforming Liberty's women's soccer team into a conference championship program, leading  the Lady Flames to back-to-back Big South titles (2000-01).

Nancy, a member of the Liberty Athletics Hall of Fame, remains the program's all-time scoring leader with 106 points (second on the list has 55 career points) and 43 goals scored (second on the list has 24 goals).

The native of Modesto, Calif., was a four-time Big South All-Conference team member (1988-99-00-01), a three-time Big South all-tournament team selection and the 2000 Big South Championship MVP. In the classroom, she was honored as a CoSIDA Academic All-District team member, as well as the Big South Women's Soccer Scholar-Athlete of the Year in 2001.

Jenny, a three-time all-conference selection (2000-02-03), finished her Liberty career with 31 points on 13 goals and five assists. A three-time all-tournament team member, she garnered tournament MVP honors during Liberty's second championship run in 2001. Off the field, she was named to the Big South All-Academic team on two occasions (2002-03).

Former head coach James Price (1997-2007), who led the charge during Liberty's trio of championships (2000-01-05), was tabbed the head coach of the 2000s. During his 11-year tenure at Liberty, the skipper garnered 87 wins, the most by a coach in program history. In addition to three conference titles and NCAA appearances, Price also earned Big South Coach of the Year Honors in 1999.
