McGimsey Named Conference Player of the Week

THOMASVILLE, NC--Lees-McRae College Bobcats soccer player Kyle McGimsey has been selected as the NCAA Division II Conference Carolinas men's soccer Player of the Week for the final week of the 2007 season. The award is the first for McGimsey this season.

A junior midfielder from Plant City, FL, McGimsey would score both goals in a 2-0 win over Conference Carolinas rival Belmont Abbey College last Wednesday in the Bobcats final home game of the regular season. In an 11-0 rout of Chowan University in the Bobcats regular season finale, McGimsey would find the back of the net once to bring his season total to seven, helping him claim the Bobcats sixth player of the week honor in nine weeks.

The Bobcats have dominated Conference Carolinas play this season, finishing with a 9-1 conference record, and 16-1-1 overall to win the Regular Season Championship. The Bobcats, currently ranked number one in the southeast region and number two in the country, battle Erskine College in Conference Carolinas Quarterfinal action Tuesday evening at Tate Field. Game time is set for 7:00pm.
