Kappel Named Vixen of the Month

Kappel Named Vixen of the Month

SWEET BRIAR, Va. --- The Sweet Briar College athletics department has named its first Vixen of the Month for the 2012-13 playing season.  Nina Kappel (Rye, N.H. / Portsmouth), a sophomore defender on the Vixen Soccer team, was voted the recipient for the month of August.


Kappel started all 14 games as a first-year for SBC and has picked up right where she left off last season.  Head Vixen Soccer coach Kevin Fabulich states, "Nina has been absolutely stellar in every thing she has done so far this year.  Fitness, attitude, diligence, organizing the team."   He continued, "stats don't go far for center backs, but she prevented six or seven goal scoring opportunities in each half of our game on Friday (August 31, 2012) and has done a great job transitioning from a quiet first-year to the vocal leader of a back line."


Kappel and company play two contests this week.  SBC travels to Emory, Va. for its first league game on Wednesday, September 12.  The Vixens and Wasps kick off at 5:30 p.m. On Saturday, September 15, SBC entertains neighboring Lynchburg College at 11 a.m. at Babcock Field.
