Next Level: Cain Ends N.C. State Career in Style
The final goal of former Pinecrest star Tanya Cain’s soccer career at N.C. State gave the ’Pack a 2-1 victory over Clemson three weeks ago.
In the seventh minute of overtime, she chipped the ball over the head of the Tiger goalkeeper for her sixth goal of the season.
An accounting major with a 3.97 GPA, Cain was recently named to the Capital One All-District Women’s Soccer Team for the third time.
University of Colorado senior Andy Wacker (Pinecrest) helped the No. 4 ranked Buffs finish second at the NCAA Mountain Region Cross Country Championships held in Provo, Utah, two weeks ago. He came in seventh overall and second on his team.
An All-American in 2010, Wacker and the Buffs will compete at the NCAA Championships in Terre Haute, Ind., on Monday.
Fayetteville State defensive back Josh Scales (Pinecrest) has been named to the All-Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA) first team.
In spite of missing two games because of an injury, the sophomore led the conference in interceptions with seven after picking off a pair in each of his final two games of the season.
He also ranked second in the CIAA in passes defended with 1.5 per game and recorded 31 tackles.
“He’s a very good athlete,” Bronco coach Ken Phillips told fsubroncos.com. “He really trained and worked out real hard this summer, and that’s the difference in his maturity from last year to this year. He’s come off a knee injury and done a very good job for us.”
Bryant University’s Dana Parziale (Pinecrest) was the Northeast Conference Men’s Rookie Tennis Player of the Year last spring. He has added to those laurels by being named the NEC Player of the Month for October.
During one stretch of the fall season, he won 16 singles and doubles matches in a row, finishing with an overall record of 19-9. He has dropped only one singles match since early September.
Eric Parziale, Dana’s brother, set up the winning goal by teammate Anthony Stanley in the 88th minute as St. Michael’s College (Vt.) defeated Merrimack 3-2 in soccer.
The goal was the third in a period of seven minutes, capping a thrilling comeback from a 2-0 deficit with under 10 minutes remaining in the match.
