Zuzga garners fourth straight All-SAC honor in Men's Soccer; three others named
ROCK HILL, SC -- Four players from Catawba College were selected to the 2006 South Atlantic Conference All-Conference Teams, announced on Tuesday by the league office. Senior forward Nathan Zuzga (Troy, MI) earned first team honors, while junior midfielder Ryan Villiard (Holiday, FL) along with two freshmen, forward Andrew Landry (Oshawa, ONT, CANADA) and defender Matt Halton (The Woodlands, TX), were second team selections.
Zuzga makes his fourth appearance on the all-conference team and is three-time first team pick. This season, he paced the Tribe with 10 goals and added six assists, scoring three game-winners in the regular season. Villiard earns league honors for the first time as he tallied six goals and had a team-high seven assists. Landry was second to Zuzga in goals with seven and added five assists. Halton helped the defense to a 1.77 goals against average and to three shutouts.
Dario Carrasco, who helped Carson-Newman to its fourth straight conference title by leading the South Atlantic Conference in goals per match, and Lenoir-Rhyne's Ged Quinn, who anchored a defense that allowed just nine goals, were named the 2006 South Atlantic Conference men's soccer Co-Players of the Year. Carrasco, a senior forward, scored 18 goals in 14 games, while Quinn, a senior defender, helped the Bears set a school-record for wins in a season.
Carson-Newman's Omar Cooke was named Freshman of the Year after scoring seven goals in his rookie season. Lenoir-Rhyne head coach Adrian Blewitt, who guided the Bears to a 15-1 record, was named Coach of the Year. The Scholar Athlete Award for men's soccer went to Daniel Waymont of Mars Hill.
