Local roundup: Lycoming men’s soccer has 3 earn honors
Three Lycoming College men’s soccer players — seniors Jared Moses and Alex Henry and sophomore Brayden Wise — were honored amongst just 184 others to earn the inaugural United Soccer Coaches College Player Award of Distinction.
The College Player Award of Distinction was established this spring for its member head coaches to submit deserving player based on one or more of the following criteria:
• Player achieved quality performance on the field
• Represented the highest ideals of team leadership
• Exhibited quality character attributes including sportsmanship and respect for teammates, opponents, officials and the game in general
• Made other significant contributions to the benefit of the program and the community.
A two-time all-region and first-team All-MAC Commonwealth selection, Moses was also named Lycoming College’s Most Outstanding Male Athlete in 2021, becoming just the fourth men’s soccer player to earn the award. Henry posted six goals and 10 assists in his career while serving as a three-year starter. Wise, an outside back, has become a key to the Warrior defense in his first two years on the field and started all 20 games. He earned second-team All-MAC Commonwealth honors as a freshman.
In women’s soccer, Lycoming senior Elle Sarracco was honored as well by the organization. She was a four-year letterwinner and led Lycoming in goals each of her past two seasons, finishing with 15 career goals, five assists and 35 points.
• Bucknell’s Kaelyn Long, a member of the Bison’s field hockey team, was named to the NFHCA third team as an All-American. She’s the second player in program history to earn All-American status, joining 2001 graduate Lauren Campbell.
