Destiny Garcia Named SAAC Women's Hornet of the Week

Kalamazoo College women's soccer player, Destiny Garcia, was named the SAAC Women's Hornet of the Week on Tuesday (Sept. 20).

After competing in two games this past week, the Hornets went 1-1 with a 3-0 loss to Ohio Northern (receiving votes in the national poll) and a 2-0 win over Elmhurst. Garcia was instrumental in the victory over the Bluejays by collecting three total points. 

Within 20 seconds of the win, Garcia put away her first goal of the season to give Kalamazoo a quick 1-0 lead, with the assist going to Ellie Andrews. She then turned around and assisted on the game's second goal, playing an excellent ball to Holly Bowling for the score. Garcia took the two shots on the net as the goalkeeper saved the other. The Hornets dominated the game as they took 25 total shots compared to the Bluejays' one attempt. 

As a junior, Garcia has scored 13 goals and assisted on five more for 31 points in the 30 games she has played thus far. Seven of those 13 goals have been game-winners, including this week's goal against Elmhurst. 

Kalamazoo has completed its non-conference schedule and will begin MIAA play on Tuesday (Sept. 27) at Alma with a 4 p.m. kickoff.
