Two Drovers named Champions of Character

SAN DIEGO, CALIF. – The weekend extra special to two Drovers, who were recognized by their teams and the NAIA as being the definition of a Champion of Character.

Seniors defenders Annie Zoch and John Gardner were named 2011 NAIA Champions of Character this weekend during their national tournament opening round trips.

Each NAIA National Tournament team nominates a player who exemplifies the NAIA motto of strong character and its five core values: integrity, respect, responsibility, sportsmanship and servant leadership.

MARSHALL, MO. – The last five minutes of Saturday evening’s game determined a repeat NAIA Men’s Soccer National Championship final site appearance for the Drover men.

A win 2-0 over the ninth-seeded Missouri Valley Vikings earned the Drovers a spot in the second round – the round of 16 – for the second year in a row.

“It was a great game,” Coach Jimmy Hampton said. “The boys played well versus a good side at their home.”
