Barton's Fagundes earns conference weekly honor #GoBarton

Barton women's soccer player Larissa Fagundes celebrates her goal against Neosho County

Larissa Fagundes of the 20th ranked Barton Community College women's soccer team has been named the week ten KJCCC player of the week.

Fagundes had a foot in five of Barton's nine goals last week including a game winner to advance the Cougars to the upcoming Plains District semifinals on Friday. In Thursday's win over Neosho County, Fagundes accounted for four of the seven with a goal and an assist in each half for a six point afternoon. The sophomore from Brazil stepped up in the 54th minute on Saturday to deliver a critical penalty kick proving to be the game winner in Barton's 2-1 win over Johnson County to move into an 8th place tie in program career history with thirty-three goals.

The honor is eighth of the season for the Cougars as attention is focused on its post-season run continuing this Friday in Cleburne, Texas. Now 15-3-1 and popping back into the nation's top twenty, Barton will face Region V's No. 18 ranked Hill College (12-1-0) in the 1:30 p.m. Plains District semifinals. The winner will advance to the 4:00 p.m. Championship against Friday's 11:00 a.m. victor between fellow Region VI member and No. 11 ranked Butler Community College (16-4) and Rose State College (15-3-2) out of Region II.
