Norberto Vieira was named NJCAA Soccer Goalkeeper of the Week on Tuesday, October 2nd.

CHARLOTTE, NC - Just one day after earning Kansas Jayhawk Community College Conference Men's Soccer Goalkeeper of the week, freshman Norberto Vieira has picked up his second set of honors by being named National Junior College Athletic Association Division I Soccer Goalkeeper of the Week.

The award comes after the Brazil native logged his second shutout of the season by going the distance in an 8-0 win over Hesston College to help Cloud County sweep the season series against the Larks. Vieira would make three saves in the contest, lowering his goals against average for the season down to 0.93 (7 goals in 680 minutes).

It marks the first time this season that a Cloud County soccer athlete has earned national player of the week honors from the NJCAA this season as the T-Birds have seen four players earn KJCCC Player of the Week honors (Vieira has won KJCCC Goalkeeper of the Week twice). CCCC continues KJCCC play today at Dodge City Community College witch kickoff set for 3:30 p.m.
