FLC well-represented on the All-South Central Region roster

The All-South Central Region soccer team had a bit of Fort Lewis College flair this year, even if it wasn’t quite as profound as in recent years.

Sam Weiss landed on the first team, while Emma Cannis and Madyson Wellcome made the second team on the women’s side.

Yannis Becker was a second-team pick on the men’s side when the Daktronics regional teams were announced Monday by the region’s sports information directors.

Weiss was a force all year for the Skyhawks (13-4-3), who narrowly missed the NCAA Tournament. The sophomore broke the FLC single-season goals record with 17 and finished with a school-record 42 total points. Weiss had a pair of hat tricks this season, as well, to go with her eight assists.

Cannis, a junior striker, teamed up top with Weiss and ranked second on the team with six goals and eight assists for a total of 20 points.

Wellcome, a junior defender, scored her first career goal this season and again was an anchor on a team that outscored the opposition 47-20 and collected 11 shutouts.

Becker, a freshman from Sittensen, Germany, led the FLC men in scoring with 21 total points. He paced the Skyhawks with seven goals and seven assists in his first year on campus.

Colorado School of Mines striker Tesho Akindele and West Texas A&M’s Leslie Briggs won the men’s and women’s regional player of the year awards, respectively.
