Sara Simpson

Trail Blazers Spotlight

This month's Student-Athlete in the Spotlight is Sara Simpson.  Sara is a 2015 graduate of Lee's Summit North High School, where she played varsity soccer and earned an academic award for her work in the classroom.  Her club soccer career encompassed play with Summit Soccer Club and KC Select.  For the Trail Blazers, Sara started all 16 games as a freshman, contributing five assists while anchoring the team's defense at center back.  Her peers and coaches noticed her outstanding play and voted her to the National Junior College Athletic Association Region XVI 1st Team in 2015.  

Sara doesn't simply rely on her talent to bring her success on the field and in the classroom.  She sets a great example for others through quiet dedication and tremendous work effort.  She showed up for every off-season practice in order to improve and continues to excel academically.  Along with other returning Trail Blazers, she has also taken the time to welcome and get to know incoming recruits ahead of the 2016 season.  Sara plans to transfer to a four year institution in order to continue to play soccer and work towards a Bachelor of Science in Nursing.  MCC-Blue River is fortunate to have Sara as part of our program and know she will help make the 2016 season a success.

Trail Blazers earn NJCAA Region 16 honors!

Congratulations to Cali Fournier, Sara Simpson, Mackenzie McGlynn and Amber Tran.  Cali and Sara were named to the NJCAA All-Region 16 First Team.  Cali led the Trail Blazers with 10 goals and 2 assists during her freshman season.  Her speed and tenacity were a constant menace to the opposition.  Sara also had an excellent freshman campaign.  She anchored the defense for the Trail Blazers, but also managed to contribute 5 assists with some incisive dribbling into the attacking third of the field.

Mackenzie McGlynn and Amber Tran were named to the NJCAA All-Region 16 Second Team. Mackenzie, a sophomore captain, made a major contribution with 8 goals and 1 assist. Her season highlight was a 3 goal effort in the final regular season game.  Amber Tran played both center back and midfield.  Her all around ability and competitiveness allowed her to play and excel in multiple positions for the Trail Blazers!

Congratulations to all four of these outstanding student-athletes!
