Hammond voted Daktronics All-West Region first team
ROHNERT PARK – It is a good honor to be recognized by your conference, but a better one to earn acclaim against your regional peers.
Humboldt State’s Zach Hammond was voted to the 2013 Daktronics NCAA Division II Men’s Soccer All-West Region first team.
The annual postseason awards program is sponsored by Daktronics, Inc. and voted on by the region’s sports information directors.
The senior from Redmond, Wash. joined nine other California Collegiate Athletic Association players on the All-West Region first team honorees including the West Region Player of the Year in Sonoma State’s Taylor Varnadore.
Hammond led the CCAA in goals scoring by blistering the nets to a tune of 14 scores over 17 matches. He found the back of the opponent’s net at least one time in nine matches.
The forward also led conference in both points (32) and shots (60) of the 12-team league. The Lumberjacks’ (6-11-1) veteran also dished out four assists.
Hammond recorded two multi-goal matches with two goals and an assist versus San Francisco State and a pair of scores at Cal State East Bay. He also two other contests with a goal and one assist against Cal State Los Angeles and last Sunday in the ‘Senior Day’ performance with Sonoma State.
For his 73-match, four-year HSU career, Hammond finished eighth on the school’s career goal list with 21, while adding 18 assists for 60 career points.
