SWOSU Men's Soccer Club Team Enjoying Success


The Southwestern Oklahoma State University men’s soccer club team in Weatherford has competed in the Oklahoma Club Collegiate Soccer League since the fall of 2009 and this spring is now sporting a perfect 4-0 record.

The team’s hard work has paid off this season, according to team member Andy Lara. The club team has already secured first place in the district with wins over East Central University (twice), Langston University and Oklahoma City Community College. The team will advance to the OCCSL semifinals, played on April 21 at 2 p.m. at either the University of Oklahoma or University of Tulsa.

The soccer team has two remaining games—April 14 at 2 p.m. vs. Langston at the SWOSU Athletic Complex and April 15 at 2 p.m. at Oklahoma City Community College.

The state championship is planned April 28 at a site to be determined. The winning team will advance to a regional tournament and possibly the national tournament.

Members of the current team include: Aashish Gurung, Victor Palomino, Gerardo Borjas, Jr., Ryan Hughey, Aziwung Algu, Jay Dalseron, Steve Rodriguez, Andy Lara, Saul Pina, Curtis Maddox, Fabian De Santiago, Trevor Stewart, Ibrahim Almutairi, Camden Raizola, Branden Mayner, Brad Bowen and Jeewan Mahajan.
