Sandra Nabweteme could arguably be Uganda’s current biggest female football export.
The footballer who is currently pursuing studies at South West Oklahoma State University (SWOSU) has continued to shine in her playing career.
After shuttering almost every goal scoring record in Uganda as she played for Fufa Women Elite champions – Kawempe Muslim – the striker had a chance to go for greener pastures.
Her goal scoring prowess attracted SWOSU who offered her a 4 year scholarship last year whilst playing football as well.
In her maiden season in America, Nabweteme took the league by storm making a formidable striking partnership with Burkina Faso teammate Almata Rabo.
The duo has been nominated in the category of Record Breaking Performance of the year.
They will compete against Mike Methany, Baxton Reeves and Jacob Richardson.
Last year, the former Kawempe Muslim skipper was one of the 53 students that were selected across all the states in America from 29 institutions to make a selection of the best three teams plus an honorable team.
The Division II Conference Commissioners Association (D2CCA) women’s soccer All-America categorized the selected players in three teams plus a honorable team and Sandra Nabweteme was pitted in the second team.
Among the 53 players only four were freshermen and two of them came from South West Oklahoma State University: Sandra Nabweteme and teammate Alimata Rabo.
Rabo was the Great American Conference player of the year, netting 22 goals for SWOSU ending the season as the second top scorer and was named on the first team that was selected by the coaches association.
Nabweteme was voted the Great American Conference Fresher of the year was named in the second best team, the only fresher on the team.
The lethal finisher helped SWOSU win the Great American Conference regular season title but lost to Harding University in the playoff finals.
