The PACWEST is proud to announce the Soccer Athletes of the Week following the final week of the regular season.

Female Soccer Athlete of the Week
Taylor Wettig - Douglas Royals

The fifth year senior was the most impactful player on the pitch in the Douglas Royals two wins in the first week of the season against Langara. On Saturday, she scored the game winner off a header. She was instrumental in helping create multiple chances for Douglas while foiling the Falcons at every opportunity. Then on Sunday Wettig continued her defensive dominance by cutting out countless passes, winning multiple tackles and making timely clearances. She also contributed on attack by creating several chances for the Royals.

Male Soccer Athlete of the Week
Hector Valdez - VIU Mariners

A strong start to the 2019 men’s soccer season earned VIU a four-point weekend. Leading the way was Hector Valdez, a rookie player who had one assist and a goal in his first two PACWEST games.
