Sakamoto named to All-West Region team

LOS ANGELES, Calif. (Dec. 15, 2009) – One of two freshman to earn All-West Region honors in men’s soccer came from Occidental College as Reid Sakamoto was voted to the Third Team.

A consistently competitive athlete, Sakamoto supplied the Tigers with a pair of assists during the fall of 2009. His stellar play throughout the season landed him on the Second Team All-SCIAC after his first collegiate season.

Following the season Sakamoto was voted team MVP by his peers as he led by example on the field day in and day out.

The Tigers finished the season 4-12-1 with a 3-10-1 SCIAC mark. With a sold core of returning athletes in the coming year, the Black and Orange look to improve on the field and in the conference standings.
