Highline College won both the Women’s and Men’s NWAC titles in November. Now in January they are sweeping again as both of the head coaches of those squads have been honored as NWAC Fall Sports Coaches of the Year in Soccer.
Steve Mohn • Highline College
Mohn, the West Region Coach of the Year, managed the 2nd-ranked Thunderbirds to a 14-1-3 record and the 2017 Championship, Highline’s third title. The Thunderbirds’ defense was the best in the conference, allowing only 11 goals in 18 matches. Six of Mohn’s players were named to the North-West All-Star team.
Tom Moore • Highline College
It was a good year to be from Highline and be ranked #2 in the final poll as Tom Moore led his undefeated squad to a 18-0-2 record and Highline’s second NWAC Championship. His Thunderbirds had one of the stingiest defenses in NWAC history allowing only 5 goals while the offense was one of the most productive in history scoring 99 goals (4.95 goals per match). Seven of Moore’s players were named to the North-West All-Star team including the West Region MVP.
