GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — The Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference (WHAC) office announced the 2014 women’s soccer award teams Wednesday (Nov. 5), highlighting the top performers from the conference as postseason play kicks off around the league. This year, five Marygrove College student-athletes were honored to various teams for their performance on the field, in the classroom and for their leadership on-and-off the playing field.
Senior forward Cheyenne York (Taylor, Mich./Truman High School) was named to the WHAC All-Conference Honorable Mention squad by way of a vote from the conference coaches. York helped steer the women’s soccer program back in the right direction, playing a huge role in all seven points earned on the season (two wins, one tie). The senior was responsible for both goals in a 2-1 victory over Indiana Tech in Detroit on Oct. 8. The 2-1 decision marked the program’s first WHAC win since their inaugural season in the conference (2012). York also tallied the lone Mustang goal in a 1-1 (2OT) tie with Lawrence Tech on Oct. 1 and an assist in the Mustangs 3-2 triumph over St. Mary-of-the-Woods (Ind.) on Sept. 23.
This season, York sent home eight of the Mustangs 12 goals in a 2-15-1 campaign for the Green and Gold. The 17-point season added to York’s already-impressive rÃ©sumÃ©, helping cap off her illustrious four-year career with 24 goals and 11 assists for 59 career points â all school records.
WHAC ALL-ACADEMIC TEAM (minimum 3.25 GPA and junior or above academic standing at Marygrove)
Five Mustangs, Henrietta Addo (Ghana, West Africa/Henry Ford CC), Andrea Aznar (Caracas, Venezuela/Oakland CC), Kamry Miller (New Boston, Mich./UM-Dearborn), Sara Ruch (Oxford, Mich./Oxford High School) and Cheyenne York, earned a spot on the WHAC’s All-Academic team by posting cumulative GPAs well above the minimum 3.25 requirement. The award is no surprise to Aznar, Miller, Ruch or York as all four have previously been honored for their academic achievements by being named United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA) Academic All-Americans.
WHAC CHAMPIONS OF CHARACTER TEAM
Andrea Aznar, a senior midfielder, was named to the 2014 WHAC Champions of Character Team after being nominated by head coach Mario Scicluna for being a great ambassador for the program on-and-off the field. The senior was honored as the Mustangs’ best representative of the NAIA’s Five Core Values of Integrity, Respect, Responsibility, Servant Leadership, and Sportsmanship.
