Successful weekend for Lethbridge College Kodiaks in soccer and cross country

A big weekend for the Lethbridge College Kodiaks in soccer and cross country.

The men’s soccer team won the ACAC championship for the first time ever.

The Kodiaks won three straight games to bring home the banner, beating Red Deer College 2-0 in the gold medal match last night in Edmonton.

They now move on to the CCAA national championships in Ontario next week.

On the women’s side, the Kodiaks won a second straight ACAC bronze medal with a 1-0 win over SAIT.

It’s the third conference medal in program history.

In cross country, Sophia Nowicki won her second-straight ACAC championship Saturday in Calgary, extending her Canadian college win streak to ten race and securing a spot at CCAA nationals in Grande Prairie on Nov.9.

Her win helped the Kodiaks women’s team repeat as ACAC champions while Simon Schaerz was named ACAC coach of the year.

On the men’s side, Connor Jackson finished in fifth place and was named to the ACAC all-conference team.

As a team, the men finished fourth, missing the podium by just eight points and failing to qualify for nationals.
