Mendoza recognized by MIAA

NSU’s Joel Mendoza turned his first-collegiate hat trick into his first conference accolade, as the freshman forward was named the MIAA Men’s Soccer Athlete of the Week Tuesday by the league office.

The freshman forward from Dallas began his week with a goal in NSU’s 4-0 triumph over Ouachita Baptist. He then racked up three tallies, including the game-winning mark, on the road in a 7-1 victory over Harding.

Mendoza now has seven goals and three assists this season, and he is third on the team with 17 points.

Northeastern State has secured a league-high four MIAA Men’s Soccer Athlete of the Week honors. Others who have won the honor are senior goalkeeper Jordan Ladbrooke (Sept. 4), senior midfielder Bo White (Sept. 11) and sophomore forward Juan Peralta (Oct. 2).

By winning the men’s and women’s soccer awards from the MIAA this week, the RiverHawks have now swept league honors twice this season.

No. 14 Northeastern State (11-3-3, 7-1-2 MIAA) has earned the No. 2 seed in the 2012 MIAA Men’s Soccer Championship, and the RiverHawks will face No. 4 seed Truman State (10-5-1, 7-2-1 MIAA) in the opening round at 4 p.m. Nov. 1 in Olathe, Kan.
