Soccer Team Achieves Goals in Fall Classes

Getting A's and B's in the classroom can be just as important to a Western Nevada Community College student athlete as scoring a goal. Last fall, the WNCC women's soccer team netted an overall grade point average of 3.04, out of a possible 4.0.

"Western strongly supports the academic achievement of our student athletes," Dean of Student Services and Athletic Director John Kinkella said. "The high expectations we have set for our student athletes continue to be met. We are delighted as much by their academic progress as by their league championships."

Soccer Head Coach Hillary Arthur continues to mandate ample study time and to stress the need for academic progress, Kinkella said. "Additionally, Counseling Services works with the coaches to carefully track the progress of the student athletes."

Soccer academic stars were Courtney Lenhart with a 3.95 and Ali Pyne with a 3.63.

The soccer team won the SWAC Region XVIII Championship in their second year and Arthur was named the conference's Coach of the Year.
