Edvardsson, Hueston BCC Student-Athletes of the Month for November
December 3, 2012 - Sophomore women's soccer players Lois Edvardsson and Courtney Hueston share the honors as Brevard Community College Student-Athletes of the Month for November.
The duo also shared the award for October and Edvardsson won it for September.
Team co-captain and striker Edvardsson and Hueston, a midfielder, played key roles for BCC all season. They were even more vital during November as their decisive goals, assists and all-around play were major factors in the Titans advancing to the NJCAA Division I national championship game.
BCC finished as national runner-up but completed a 16-2 season in which Edvardsson, a two-year starter from Gothenburg, Sweden, scored 13 goals and recorded five assists. Hueston, a second-year walk-on from Miami and the University of Miami, scored 13 times and notched 10 assists.
Also, their leadership was instrumental in seeing the Titans through a spate of injuries that claimed three starters for the season and cost others significant time.
In addition, Hueston was selected as an NJCAA Division I First-Team All-American and Edvardsson named to the second team on Nov. 30. That national honor came a day after Hueston was named MVP of the NJCAA's Region 8 while Edvardsson was one of five BCC players selected to the regional first team.
"What can I say about Courtney and Lois this season that has not already been said?" BCC head coach Jeff Carr said. "They were two of our leaders and led our team in scoring. Between them they had 26 of our 48 goals scored this year.
"They are special players and more importantly great young ladies and they will be a great addition to the four-year programs they will join next year. They will be sadly missed. You cannot replace players of that caliber but we'll have to try. They made this year very special. They are so deserving of all the recognition that they have received."
