Despite not being rewarded by the California Collegiate Athletic Association soccer coaches, Cal State Stanislaus junior forward Andres Zamora got recognized at the regional level as he was named to the NSCAA/Performance Subaru All-West Region third team by the National Soccer Coaches Association of American on Monday.
Zamora, a transfer from Hartnell College, led the Warriors with six goals scored in 2010 as the Warriors posted a second straight winning season with a 9-5-4 record.
Zamora is the sixth Warrior since 2005 to be selected to the NSCAA All-Region teams.
Demery picks up another award
Karenee Demery picked up another first as a result of her tremendous rookie season. The freshman forward was named to the Daktronics/CoSIDA Women's Soccer All-America second team, honoring some of the nation's best women's soccer players in Division II.
Demery became the first Cal State Stanislaus women's soccer player to be named an All-American. Demery was the school's first Most Valuable Offensive Player of the Year in the CCAA. She earned Daktronics/CoSIDA's West Region Player of the Year honors, another first for the program. Last week, she also picked up a NSCAA/Performance Subaru All-Region first team award.
"This is a great honor for Karenee and our entire soccer family here at Cal State Stanislaus,” Warriors coach Gabriel Bolton said. "While this is an individual award our entire team, coaching staff and administration takes great pride in Karenee's wonderful accomplishment. She is extremely talented and is very deserving of this recognition."
Demery, who attended tiny Harvest Christian High School in Merced, exploded on the scene in the conference and scored a league-leading and school-record 18 goals by the end of the regular season. She also notched 42 points with nine game-winning goals to lead the Warriors into the CCAA Championships. Demery added another score in the conference tournament semifinal match.
The Warriors finished 12-6-1 in 2010 for their ninth winning season in the last 10 years. They qualified for the conference tournament for the second time.
