2002: Another one of Florida State’s top freshmen, Lewis saw action in 21 of Florida State’s 23 games…Lewis brought an attitude to the central midfield and showed no fear playing against every ranked team on FSU’s schedule…fifth on the team in points and goals…one of just two freshmen to record a multi-goal game…second amongst rookies in goals, points, shots and shots on goal…all three of her goals came against ranked teams (NC State, Maryland and Charlotte)…(in the ACC) made a huge impact in Florida State’s first-ever conference win in the state of North Carolina versus NC State where she scored two goals…appeared in six of the Seminoles conference contests…only game she did not appear in was season finale versus Virginia…second to just Leah Gallegos for goals scored and points recorded in conference games by an FSU freshman…second amongst all Semi-nole rookies for shots and shots on goal in ACC games…(in the NCAA) one of five FSU freshmen that saw action in all three NCAA Tournament games in 2002…second on the team with four shots in the 2002 NCAA Tournament…(vs. Charlotte) had a break out game versus the No. 12 49ers in the Miami Hurricane Invitational Tournament. The freshman not only scored a goal that put the Seminoles in the lead at 3-2 but she made a big impact all over the field. Lewis took one of the most impressive free kicks in recent memory in the 37th minute of the match. She lined up for the kick on the left side of the pitch and about 28 yards from goal. She drove a low, line drive to the back post that caught the inside of the post and bounced back into play. It was an amazing strike that just missed being the first goal of her Semi-nole career. After the 49ers staged a two-goal comeback in the second half, Lewis got the two points that eluded her on her free kick. Freshman Leah Gallegos made a great run into the box on the left side. She turned to goal and ripped a shot off the crossbar. The ricochet ended up at the feet of Lewis. The freshman one-timed the rebound to give FSU the 3-2 edge…(vs. NC State) Lewis bested that effort in a key conference road game in Raleigh, NC. The midfielder scored two goals, her first since the Charlotte game, and recorded the first multi-goal game of her young career. In the 27th minute, Florida State broke out to a 1-0 lead. Jez Ratliff made a great run down the right wing. She found Lewis at the top of the box just to the right of the goal. Lewis settled the ball, took one touch and fired a low drive to the near post beating Gretchen Lear. In the 67th min-ute Jenny Garcia collected the ball in the mid-dle of the pitch and laid the pass off to Lewis standing about 25 yards away just to the right of goal. She blasted a shot over the top of Lear and it fell in over the keeper’s head staking the Tribe to a 5-1 lead...(vs. Maryland) brought FSU back within one goal of Maryland in the ACC Tournament when her shot from 25 yards out beat the keeper and narrowed the score to 2-1.
