SAIT Trojans Mike Hamm and Erin White named to ACAC South All-Conference soccer squads

A pair of Cranbrook-raised soccer stars have earned college accolades for their efforts as a part of SAIT Trojans athletics.

Erin White and Mike Hamm, both graduates of Mount Baker Secondary School in Cranbrook, had their names called this past weekend as the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference (ACAC) presented its North and South All-Conference teams.

For Hamm, it was his first time being named to the South All-Conference team.

The 5-foot-11 defender is in his fourth year with the Trojans men’s soccer program.

In eight regular season games, Hamm struck for two goals as the Trojans went 8-2-0 before falling to the NAIT Ooks in the bronze medal game at the ACAC Men’s Soccer Championship in Fort McMurray, Alta.

Hamm was named Trojans player of the game as SAIT wrapped up a fourth-place finish.

Hamm’s performance was also recognized early in the season as he was named SAIT Trojans Male Athlete of the Week (Sept. 19 to 20).

For White, this marked her second consecutive selection to the ACAC South All-Conference team, with her first recognition coming in 2014.

White, a 5-foot-11 defender in her third year at SAIT, played in all 10 regular season games for the Trojans.

Finishing the season 0-7-3, White and the Trojans missed out on the ACAC Women’s Soccer Championship in Grande Prairie, Alta.

White was named the SAIT Trojans Female Athlete of the Week for the week of Oct. 2 to 4.

SAIT Polytechnic is located in Calgary and SAIT Athletics is a member of the 17-school ACAC.

The ACAC is the governing body for intercollegiate athletics in Alberta. Its mission is to provide competitive collegiate sport experiences, promote academic achievement and be a leader of sport development in Canada.

Notes: Jordan Revie, another native of Cranbrook, was named SAIT Trojans Trojan of the Week (Sept. 25 to 26) for his performance as the unsung hero for the Trojans men’s hockey team. Revie is in his first year with the Trojans and has recorded two goals and three points in six games.
