Santa Clara seniors Peter Lowry and Meagan Snell were both named to the Missouri Athletic Club’s Hermann Trophy watch list this fall. The M.A.C. Hermann Trophy is presented each year to the outstanding player in Division I soccer for both men’s and women’s soccer. Lowry is one of 29 male soccer players from around the nation on the list and Snell is one of 45 female players.
Lowry, a three-time All-WCC selection, is hoping to lead the Broncos to the College Cup in his final season on the Mission Campus. As a junior in 2006, he helped SCU reach the quarterfinals of the NCAA Tournament and was named All-Far West Region First Team. A native of Fair Oaks, Calif., Lowry scored six goals and notched two assists to tie for the team lead in scoring with 14 points. With five goals already this season as of press time, he has moved into the top 10 all-time in goals scored at Santa Clara.
Snell, who led SCU with 11 goals in 2006, also has high hopes for the 2007 season. An All-WCC honoree last year, Snell and the Broncos have their sights set on the program’s 11th College Cup. She helped SCU post a 15-5-1 record last year and earn a number one seed in the NCAA Tournament. For her career, she has scored 17 goals and recorded 11 assists. —JM
