The PACWEST is proud to announce the Soccer Athletes of the Week following the regular season finale this past weekend.
Women’s Soccer Athlete of the Week
Rachel Jones – VIU Mariners
Last year’s PACWEST Championship MVP was phenomenal this weekend with two strong 90 minute displays. She was winning headers, tackles, dominating midfield and scored a pair of goals. Jones led by example and gives the team great confidence going into PACWEST Championships this weekend in Squamish as the fourth seed.
Men’s Soccer Athlete of the Week
Chris Merriman – VIU Mariners
He had an outstanding final weekend with the top seeded Mariners. On Saturday the left-back scored the opening goal and helped setup two others to give his team a 4-0 start at the end of the first half. Then on Sunday Merriman was robbed on a free kick by the Capilano Blues goal keeper but it was also Merriman's defensive work against the high powered Blues that made him standout.
