Central Alum Earns First Team All-Western in Soccer
Posted by Community Relations Department at 11/20/2013
Former Central student Alberto Sanchez Garcia earned First Team All-Western Athletic Conference honors in soccer playing for Grand Canyon University this fall. The post-season honor was determined by a vote of league coaches.
Sanchez Garcia, a sophomore, is second on the Antelopes with five goals and 12 total points having started 17 games this season. The five scores match his career-high for a season, as he also notched five goals during his freshman campaign in 2012.
“Anytime you get a young man recognized on the First Team, it means a lot, especially in our first year at the Division I level. And the beauty of it is that he still has two years to play," GCU coach Petar Draksin said.
