• Headlined by two three-time selections, the Lycoming men’s soccer team had a record four players earn spots on the United Soccer Coaches All-Mid-Atlantic Region Teams, the organization announced Wednesday.

Senior midfielders Abdullahi Abdi and Jordan Logan each earned all-region honors for the third time in their careers, as Abdi was named to the first team and Logan to the second.

Also earning a spot on the first team was junior defender Sainclair Tueno. Earning a spot on the third team was senior defender Kyle Thomas. It was Tueno’s first selection and Thomas’ second after earning first-team honors his sophomore season.
