Academic honours for six SFU soccer stars
Six student-athletes from SFU’s women’s soccer team have earned Great Northwest Athletic Conference (GNAC) academic honours.
Players include Gabrielle Brissette, a major in resource and environmental management; Hollis Roeske and Amanda Scott, both health sciences majors; Valerie Silva, an education major, whose parents Lloyd and Sheila both played for soccer for SFU; Jenieva Musico, studying in the Beedie School of Business and Katie MacEwen, a communication major who followed in her father Craig's footsteps to play soccer for SFU. Her mother was also an SFU grad and her brother is also currently a student.
"From an education standpoint, SFU is a world-class school with a fantastic reputation," says MacEwen, who has represented B.C. numerous times during her youth career and won a gold medal at the 2015 Western Canada Games. "From a soccer perspective, it's an up-and-coming program with an incredible history."
To qualify for GNAC All-Academic teams, presented by Barnes & Noble College, players must have a GPA of 3.20 or greater, be a letter winner on their team and be in their second year or greater.
