Coast Guard Academy men’s soccer senior co-captain Greg Kennerley has been named the first CGASPORTS.COM Athlete of the Week for his two-goal performance in the Bears 3-1 win over archrival Merchant Marine on Saturday.
Kennerley, who was the recipient of the #12 jersey during
pregame ceremonies to honor LTJG Thomas Cameron, scored a penalty
kick in the 55th minute to break a 1-1 tie and gave the
Bears an insurance goal in the 73rd minute as Coast
Guard beat Merchant Marine for the first time since 1999. The Bears
were 0-11-1 in the previous 12 games against the Mariners.
The men’s soccer program will honor Cameron each season by picking a player that embodies what Thomas stood for and that player will wear the #12 for the season.
