Smith Named SAC Men's Soccer Player of the Week
ROCK HILL, SC -- Catawba midfielder Carson Smith (Mooresville, NC/Mooresville HS) has been selected as the South Atlantic Conference Men's Soccer Player of the Week for the week ending Oct. 9. It was announced by conference officials on Tuesday.
Smith scored four goals and added a pair of assists in Catawba’s two wins last week. In Saturday’s matchup with Carson-Newman, the junior provided the assist on Catawba’s game-tying goal with 54 seconds remaining, then scored the game winner five minutes into overtime.
Earlier in the week, Smith recorded a hat trick against Chowan, in addition to notching an assist. On the season, he shares the team lead with six goals and has a team-high six assists.
