Two Named to NJCAA All-American Teams, One Athlete-of-the-Month

Two student athletes from the College of Southern Maryland have been named to National Junior College Athletics Association’s (NJCAA) All-American Teams for their respective sport. All-American Team selections are nominated by coaches and then selected by the NJCAA’s sport committee. Recipients of this honor are chosen based on athletic ability as well as academic excellence.

Sophomore Taylor Superior of Leonardtown was named to the NJCAA Women’s Soccer All-American First Team. 

“The coaching staff and team are extremely excited for Taylor,” said Head Coach Adam Sanchez. “Earning NJCAA First Team All-American is the highest award a women's soccer player can receive individually and it is a reflection of the hard work and commitment she has given to the CSM Women's Soccer Program. It is a great milestone for the program as Taylor is the first, First Team All-American selection from the NJCAA in program history. She not only merits the selection, but embodies the ideal attributes of an NJCAA All-American.”

Sophomore Sean Bucior of Mechanicsville was named to the NJCAA Men’s Soccer All-American Second Team.

“After a stellar freshman season, during which he received First Team All-American honors, Sean returned to submit an equally impressive performance in his sophomore year,” said Head Coach Derek Dyson. “Sean has emerged as a leader of this team and a great example of the type of student-athlete we hope to produce on the field and in the classroom. I am excited to see what his future holds when he gets to the next level.”

Sophomore Jacqueline Clark of La Plata was one of five Maryland athletes named Athlete of the Month for October by the Maryland Junior College Athletic Conference (MDJUCO). Clark was the 2014 MDJUCO and Region XX Champion for women's cross country with a time of 20:41 in the 5K race. In CSM’s first year of the program, she was the individual medalist.
