The Owls athletic staff has named Michael Ledbetter as the December 2019 Renasant Athlete of the Month.
The junior soccer player from Columbus, Miss. was an essential part of the Owls men’s soccer run to the 2019 USCAA National Championship Tournament. Ledbetter led the Owls offense with 27 points and in scoring with 13 goals. Nationally he ranked second in shots, fourth in goals, and fourth in points.
“Michaels is the perfect example of what our soccer program and university should look like,” said W men’s soccer head coach Dylan Burnett. “He is a tireless worker in the classroom, on the playing field and in the community. He was a very critical piece to our success this year and I have no doubt that this will carry over into future successes in his lifetime.”
The men’s soccer team finished the season with a program-best 7-8-4 record and made its first appearance in the USCAA National Championship Tournament.
