BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Soccer players Abbie Camargo and Kyle Carr are the 2014-2015 Eastern Florida State College Student-Athletes of the Year.
Camargo, a freshman from Ocala, Florida and Trinity Catholic High, was a National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) first team All-America selection for NJCAA Division I players.
Camargo set a school record for assists with 16 and played a pivotal role in the Titans reaching the semifinals of the NCAA Division I Women’s Soccer National Championship.
Carr, a sophomore from Indialantic, Melbourne High and Taylor University, was an NJCAA Division I first-team All-America selection.
He played one season at Eastern Florida and was a stalwart on the backline as the Titans reached the district final, one step from their second straight national tournament appearance.
“Kyle has had an impressive career at Eastern Florida,” said Titans head coach Oliver Twelvetrees.
“He has excelled in the classroom with above a 3.8 GPA as well as starting and captaining the team to another region-championship winning season. His work ethic is second to none and he will go on to achieve all his goals and ambitions with the passion and determination he has for the game.”
Head women’s soccer coach Jeff Carr had praise for Camargo.
“What a great honor for Abbie being named Athlete of the Year,” Carr said.
“She had a great season leading us to the National Championship Final Four. Abbie had 11 goals and 16 assists and led our team with 38 points.
“She was one of the reasons that we went so far in the tournament. She was chosen first-team All American and truly deserved that honor. We are very excited about her returning this season and hopefully having an even better season individually and for the team.”
