Women's Soccer - Wed, Nov. 30, 2016

The 2016 Harris-Stowe Hornets Women's Soccer team made great strides this past season both on and off the field.  On the field the team had the most victories since 2000.  Megan Wilson honored as American Midwest Conference All-Conference selection and 5 others (Tais Barbosa, Samantha Cervantes, Willow Liukaina, Colbee Miller, Dominique Tedesco) received honorable mention AMC All-Conference.  Head Coach Scot Vorwold moved into 2nd place on the all-time wins list behind Rock Rone for career victories for the Harris-Stowe Women's Soccer program. 

Off the field the team has again been recognized with 7 AMC Academic All-Conference selections.  To receive the award the athlete must be a sophomore or older in the class room and have a ccumulative grade point average of 3.0.  Vorwold on the selections, "This is an award we take very seriously. We push each student athlete to try and reach this award and so much more. Last year we finished the academic year with a 3.393 team cumulative GPA which ranked us highest in the athletic department. We also saw three players get inducted into the national honor society as well as winning the HSSU Female Scholar Athlete of the year at the Swarm awards. As hard as we fight on the field the ladies know it's equally important to produce that same effort in the classroom. I am extremely proud of all of the award winners and I look forward to adding more to this list year after year. "
