RBC | Colorado Northwestern Community College’s inaugural soccer season at the Craig campus wrapped up last month with Spartan student athletes being recognized by the Scenic West Athletic Conference (SWAC) for their outstanding performance on the field.
Miguel Rodriguez, No. 17, was named to the SWAC All-Conference First Team. Upon hearing the news, coach Lance Noble said, “Miguel was one of our most consistent players for the men’s team. He kept us in many games and was a strong anchor for the team.”
From the women’s soccer program, Hannah Walker, No. 7, and Bethany Najera, No. 30, were named honorable mentions for the Scenic West Athletic Conference. “Bethany’s leadership capabilities were of a high standard this season,” said assistant coach Joe Eades, “and as goalkeeper, Hannah was an incredible asset and integral part of the women’s team. This is such an honor for each student athlete and our first-year for the soccer program.”
“We are extremely proud of the men and woman who helped launch the soccer program at the CNCC Craig campus,” said vice president of student affairs Janell Oberlander, who went on to say, “We continue to expand our educational opportunities to enhance lives throughout northwestern Colorado. We appreciate the Craig community’s support and local partners and look forward to another successful season next year.”
