October 07, 2013

For the second time this season a member of the Columbia International University Rams soccer team has been named Athlete of the Week by the National Christian College Athletic Association (NCCAA).

Freshman goalkeeper Luke Brooks took the honors Oct. 1 among defensive players in Division I. Brooks had seven saves for CIU in a 2-0 shutout of Bob Jones University on Sept. 24. Brooks was also stingy at the net in a 4-1 win over Concordia College three days later.

CIU’s Daniel Mallard was named Athlete of the Week Sept. 2 after he scored eight goals in three matches to lead CIU to a 3-0 start of the season.
