Lydia Morris named to NJCAA Student-Athlete CouncilCCBC women’s soccer student-athlete, Lydia Morris, has been selected as the Region XX female representative for the inaugural National Junior College Athletic Association Student-Athlete Council.
Morris is entering her sophomore season with the CCBC Essex Knights women’s soccer team. As a freshman, she helped anchor a defense that allowed 1.9 goals per game and posted 10 shutouts.
A resident of Parkville, Md., and graduate of Mercy High School in Baltimore, Morris was a three-season sport student-athlete in high school, participating in both outdoor and indoor soccer as well as basketball. She has also coached numerous youth soccer teams over the last five years, most recently the Red Lobsters, an under-10 boys team through Parkville Recreation and Parks.
The NJCAA says the council “will serve as a vital connection between the NJCAA and the student-athletes it serves. It will create additional leadership opportunities for our student-athletes, and their voices will assist in the direction of our organization.”
The council comprises two individuals, one male and one female, for each of the 24 NJCAA regions.
