Springfield, Mass. - October 1, 2018 - Springfield College's Christian Schneider (Douglas, Mass.) of the men's soccer team has been recognized for his impressive performances last week, as he was named the New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) Men's Soccer Offensive Athlete of the Week, announced by the conference office on Monday afternoon.
Schneider, a senior Sport Management major at Springfield College, helped the Pride to a pair of wins this past week as the senior forward registered the game-winning strike in a 1-0 overtime win over Wentworth, before adding an assist to lift Springfield College over Clark, 2-0, in a rematch of last season's NEWMAC Championship Semifinal on Saturday afternoon. Schneider also played an integral role in the Pride's first strike of the game to open the second half.
Springfield College will return to action on Tuesday, October 2 when it hosts Framingham State at 7 p.m. before taking on MIT at 12 p.m. on Saturday, October 6.
