Sierra College not only had its most successful womens soccer season in school history but was also honored when forward Miani Mahannah was selected to the 2012 Womens Junior College Division I All America Soccer Team.
The sophomore was to accept her award at a luncheon in Indianapolis, Ind., last Saturday.
With Sierra ranked No. 4 in the final NCSAA poll, Mahannah was not only instrumental in getting the Wolverines to the CCCAA state championship tournament but rose to national prominence during that playoff run.
“Miani’s five goals in the final three games of the playoffs were huge,” said Wolverine head coach Jason Gantt. “She came back from playing minimal time in the first playoff game due to sickness to go on a scoring run that was truly amazing.”
The coach was ecstatic over Mahannah’s selection.
