Seattle University swept the National Soccer Coaches Association of America Far West Region Coaches of the Year honors for both men’s and women’s soccer for the 2004 season.
Peter Fewing and Julie Woodward each won the NCAA Division II Far West Region Coach of the Year after leading their teams to the Far West Region titles. It is the first such award for each coach.
Fewing also led his Redhawks to the NCAA Division II national title and an undefeated 22-0-1 record. It was the second national title for Seattle’s men’s soccer team after winning the 1997 NAIA title. Fewing was also named the Great Northwest Athletic Conference Coach of the Year in 2004 for the third time in four years after leading the Redhawks to their second consecutive GNAC title.
Woodward also led her team to its first NCAA Division II Far West Region title with a 2-0 win over crosstown rival Seattle Pacific in the regional-title game. The Redhawks then went on to the NCAA quarterfinals, where they lost 1-0 on a penalty kick to eventual national champion Metro State.
Earning his third All-America honor, Eastern Washington offensive tackle Michael Roos has been selected to the American Football Coaches Association NCAA Division I-AA Coaches’ All-America team. Roos is a 2000 graduate of Mountain View High School in Vancouver, Wash., and he will play in next month’s Senior Bowl (Jan. 29) and East-West Shrine Game (Jan. 15).
The Everett Hawks have signed a lease agreement with the Everett Events Center. The inaugural season for the National Indoor Football League team will begin play in March. The official schedule is still being finalized.
“We are extremely pleased to have a new addition to our family,” said Global Spectrum’s Kim Bedier, general manager for the Everett Events Center. “I believe with (owner) Sam Adams at the helm, the Everett Hawks have a great opportunity for success.”
Montana State’s Roger Cooper, a product of South Kitsap High in Port Orchard, earned third-team All-American honors.
Cooper earns his second major All-America honor of the postseason, coming on the heels of his third-team Sports Network selection last week. The Big Sky Defensive Co-MVP and three-time All-Big Sky first-team choice had 68 tackles, 14 for a loss and five sacks this season. He broke up three passes, recovered and caused one fumble, and blocked a kick.
