WCC soccer player recognized as Featured Student for February

in Elburn/Hometown/Sugar Grove by

SUGAR GROVE—Waubonsee Community College sophomore Justin Salazar, an Elburn resident, is the consummate student-athlete, accomplishing extraordinary things both on and off the soccer field. In honor of these accomplishments, Waubonsee has named Salazar the college’s Featured Student for February.

Most of Salazar’s recent press clippings center on the season that he and his teammates had this past fall, winning the Illinois Skyway Collegiate Conference title for the first time in Waubonsee’s history.

“We beat Oakton (Community College) to win the conference championship, and our whole team ran out on the field,” Salazar said.

“It’s definitely one of my greatest soccer memories.”

Salazar also lists it as his greatest athletic accomplishment this year.

“Bringing home the first championship in the college’s history is something I’m very proud of,” he said. “Plus, it’s a team award, so that’s always great.”

While the success was truly a team effort, Salazar has been singled out for his outstanding performance as the Chiefs’ goalkeeper. His individual honors include being named a National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Third Team All-American and the top keeper of the All-Region IV Champions Group.

Statistically speaking, Salazar’s 125 saves ranked him eighth in the nation among NJCAA Division I keepers, while his save percentage of .856 placed him 14th.

Salazar, who owns a 4.0 grade point average, said his plans for the future are not quite set, but he has some ideas. He will graduate from Waubonsee this summer and then possibly transfer on to Aurora University to play soccer.

“I’d like to keep playing soccer and see if that takes me anywhere, maybe play professionally,” Salazar said. “If not, I may go to medical school.”
