Liberty Athletics Hall of Fame

During Hall of Fame weekend in September, the Liberty Flames Sports Network had a chance to catch up with former women's soccer standout forward Nancy (Davis) White.

White was one of five members inducted into the Liberty Athletics Hall of Fame on Sept. 13. The five-member class, the fifth in the organization's history, also included Anthonia (Akpama) Oyedele (volleyball), Bailey Alston (men's basketball), Brenda Bonheim (volleyball and women's basketball coach/SWA) and Robby Justino (football).

In just four short years, White helped turn Liberty's women's soccer team into a conference championship program. Prior to her arrival in 1998, Liberty had posted a 2-30 record in Big South play over a six-year span. However, White's success on the pitch would eventually lead the Lady Flames to their first two Big South titles (2000 and 2001).

White's career numbers far surpass any other in program history. She is 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).

In 2000, Liberty captured the program's first-ever Big South title and advanced in the NCAA Women's Soccer Championship with a Play-In game victory over Tennessee Tech. That season, Liberty set a program mark for wins with its 15-7 overall record.

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.
