ROUNDUP: Lyco midfielder Moses named to all-region soccer team
After leading Lycoming’s men’s soccer team to its third straight appearance in the MAC Commonwealth finals, junior midfielder Jared Moses earned a spot on the United Soccer Coaches All-Mid-Atlantic Region Second Team.
A two-time First Team All-MAC Commonwealth selection, the team’s central midfielder helped the Warriors to six straight wins to reach the conference finals while serving key roles on both the offensive and defensive ends of the field. He averaged 77 minutes per game in that role and has one assist to his credit, against Widener, this year.
• Mansfield University baseball coach Andrew Chalot announced Monday the hiring of Anthony Goncalves as the next assistant coach.
Prior to Mansfield, Goncalves spent four seasons as the assistant baseball coach and recruiting coordinater at Jefferson University. Goncalves helped the Rams notch their best regular season in program history when the club finished second in the Central Atlantic Athletic Conference with an 11-9 conference record. He also helped the offense improve in every statistical category, improving the team’s home run totals from 13 in 2015 to 54 in 2017. He coached two Player of the Year and All-American players, five all-conference members and three players that went on to play professional baseball.
• After blocking a school-record eight shots against Susquehanna, freshman Dyson Harward has earned his second career MAC Commonwealth Defensive Player of the Week award.

Harward leads the MAC Commonwealth with an average of 3.0 blocks per game and his 7.2 rebounds per game in sixth in the league.
