Central Alum Earns First Team All-Western in Soccer

Posted by Community Relations Department on 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.
