Waxahachie, Texas – December 12, 2016- One final honor has been awarded for Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) women’s soccer player Nadine Jaimes and it is a big one.  Jaimes has been named an All-American by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA).  Jaimes is one of 11 Division I student-athletes from across the United States to receive the prestigious honor.

The 5’1 junior from Dallas, Texas has received many honors after her stellar third season for the Lady Lions.  She was named First Team All-Sooner Athletic Conference (SAC), Frist Team NCCAA Central Region as well as being named with the national NSCAA Scholar Athlete award.

This season Jaimes led the Lady Lions, as well as the SAC, in goals scored.  She scored 20 goals over a span of 18 games played this season.  Jaimes ranks no. 12 in the NAIA in total goals scored.  On top of being the leading scorer for SAGU, she also led the team in assists (5), shots (88) and shots on goal (50).

"Former US Soccer Women's National Team star Mia Hamm states, "The vision of a champion is someone who is bent over, drenched in sweat, at the point of exhaustion, when nobody else is looking."  This quote illustrates who Nadine Jaimes is both on-and-off the field. Nadine has grown into a servant-leader who, as a team captain, will continue to demonstrate what it means to be a Champion for Christ as well as serve as a representation of SAGU's commitment to Christian Higher Education,” explains head coach Paul Hason.

As part of her award, Jaimes has been invited to attend the annual NSCAA All-America Luncheon on Saturday, January 14, 2017 in Los Angeles.  The event honors All- America players at the youth, high school and college levels and is held in conjunction with the 70th annual NSCAA Convention.   The All-America Luncheon program features a graduation style presentation of the award winners on stage.  Players are introduced, cross the stage and are congratulated by soccer celebrities.  There will be nearly 1,000 attendees at the luncheon.  It is an extraordinary event celebrating the best amateur soccer players in the United States in 2016.
