Santa Clara, Calif. - Santa Clara men's soccer player Peter Lowry was named the Comcast Community All-Star Award winner for last May at the men's soccer game against San Jose State on the evening of September 22, 2006. The award was presented to Lowry by head coach Cameron Rast in front of a crowd of about 3,500 spectators.
Lowry, a junior finance major from Fair Oaks, Calif., has shown his involvement in the community in a variety of ways. His participation extends throughout many community service activities both on and off campus.
Lowry is a strong presence not only in the community, but on the field as well. As a freshman, he started with a bang, scoring in the first three minutes of his college soccer career. He started in all but one of the men's soccer games last year as center midfielder, willingly giving up his position that game to a deserving senior on Senior Day. His career of 60 games includes 12 goals, eights assists and 32 points.
The Comcast Community All-Star Award is presented to Santa Clara student-athletes, who are active in benefiting their local community. The award was developed two years ago and is presented monthly to a different student-athlete who is positively contributing their time and energy to help others.
