PORTLAND, Ore. – With GNAC teams preparing for another week of conference action, GNAC Insider got ready for its weekly show Tuesday night at 7 p.m., Pacific, hosted by Rob Lowery. Tuesday's guests were Montana State Billings’ men’s soccer goalkeeper Tom Lohmann, Seattle Pacific women’s goalkeeper Molly Stinson and Western Washington Director of Athletics Steve Card.

Lohmann joined Insider off a two-win weekend to open conference action undefeated. In their recent home wins against Northwest Nazarene and Concordia, Lohmann played all 180 minutes, producing 11 saves on 14 shots on goal. The 6-foot-2 senior has recorded nine career shutouts for the Yellowjackets and captured the GNAC Men’s Soccer Defensive Player of the Week honor last week. During his time at MSUB, Lohmann was selected as an All-GNAC Honorable Mention in 2015 and was named to the GNAC All-Academic Team in 2016.

Starting out 3-0 in conference play, Stinson has led Seattle Pacific to its best GNAC start since 2013. Last season, Stinson set a new school single-season record with 106 saves. Her 241 career-save total ranks second in SPU history, just 30 shy of the school record of the 271 mark set by Jennifer Hull from 2001-2004. Saturday’s 1-0 victory against Northwest Nazarene gave Stinson her 17th shutout of her career and improved her career record to 33-12-7.

Capping the night was Western Washington’s Director of Athletics Steve Card, who was named the athletic director in March of 2014 after serving in an interim capacity during the 2013-14 school year. After spending more than 28 years with the institution in various roles, Card will speak about WWU’s newly renovated $70 million on-campus athletic facility (Carver Gymnasium), his involvement with the NCAA Division II Championships Committee and the recent success of various WWU sports programs.
