McCrath Receives Lifetime Award

WHILE HIS PURSUIT of becoming collegiate soccer’s all-time victory leader is still underway, Cliff McCrath was chosen for a lifetime achievement award by Friends of Soccer Washington State during a November 6 breakfast at Seahawks Stadium.

McCrath, who entered the final weeks of the season needing fewer than five victories to become the career leader in coaching wins, was honored along with Michelle Akers, star of two World Cup championship teams and a former pupil of McCrath at Northwest Soccer Camp on Whidbey Island. He has been a Northwest icon for the sport during the past 33 years, due in part to the Camp, to his extraordinary success (five national championships) at SPU, and to his colorful personality.
