| McCrath Receives
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.
