Jeff Travis of Comox named PacWest male Athlete of the Week

VIU men's soccer centre-back helps team to two shutout victories

Jeff Travis of Comox is the PacWest male Athlete of the Week for Week #4.

Jeff Travis of Comox was named the PacWest male Athlete of the Week for Week #4.

The Vancouver Island University Mariners captain led his men’s soccer team to a pair of huge wins over the weekend. The Mariners’ centre back helped his team keep two clean sheets, winning 1­‐0 against the highly skilled third place Douglas College Royals on Saturday, and 2­‐0 against second place Kwantlen Polytechnic University Eagles on Sunday.

Travis has been a standout for the Mariners in their first nine games and is a big reason they have the fewest goals against, with only five goals against and four shutouts.

The 6’3″ defender has started every game, playing 90 minutes per game for the Mariners. Travis dominates teams in the air and controls his backline, showing his great leadership.

The Mariners (7-2­‐0) now sit 11 points clear of second place in the competitive PacWest. The team’s leader and second­‐year captain is an inspirational player for all his teammates, and looks to be a big part of the Mariners success this season.
