Mountaineer rookie gets soccer honour

Mohawk’s Heather Werkman has been named the Canadian Colleges Athletic Association’s women’s soccer Athlete of the Month in Ontario for October. The CCAA Athlete of the Month program recognizes student-athletes at colleges across the country for their outstanding event performance and athletic accomplishments during that month.

The CCAA noted that rookie Werkman, a first year Practical Nursing student at Mohawk, has proven to be a dominant force on the field. As a fullback with the Mountaineers, Heather is a dedicated player, giving 100% on and off the field.
