The National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) has announced that Union County College Women’s Soccer player Maya Lawler, of Cranford, was named to the 2017 NJCAA Division III All-American Second Team. Ms. Lawler is the first Union County College Women’s soccer player to be named to an NJCAA All-America team.

Ms. Lawler, a defender for Union, had a standout season. She was named the NJCAA Region XIX Division III Co-Player of the Year. She was also named a member of the All-Region XIX Division III First Team, the All-Garden State Athletic Conference (GSAC) First Team, and was the Most Valuable Player of the 2017 North Country Community College (NCCC) Kick-Off Tournament.

“Maya is a talented athlete and a super-star in the classroom. Although she is dedicated to her craft and serving the team, she puts even more time into her academic studies and serves as a role model for her teammates,” said Union’s Head Woman’s Soccer Coach Angie Correa.
