ERIE, PA —
Eight members of the Frostburg State men's soccer team have been selected to the All-Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference team as voted by the league's seven head coaches, while freshman Mike Jungerheld (Pasadena, Md./Chesapeake)
was named the conference's Newcomer of the Year.
Junior forward Jon Wieland (Woodbridge, Va./Hylton), senior defender Gary Lesko (Waldorf, Md./McDonough), junior defender Jay Levesque (Falls Church, Va./Bishop O'Connell) and junior goalie Mike Pregnall (Herndon, Va./Oakton) were all named to the All-AMCC first team.
Wieland led the Bobcats with 14 assists and 32 points while tying for the team lead with nine goals, setting career highs in all three categories.
After starting the year as a defender, Wieland was moved to the front line for more scoring punch, and the speedster produced, notching eight goals in FSU's final 10 games.
He set a Bobcat single-game record with five assists in a 5-1 win over Washington & Jefferson October 17, and he took home three of the final four AMCC Player of the Week awards.
Lesko and Levesque, who each started 20 games, anchored a Bobcat defensive unit that allowed just 18 goals in 20 games (0.90 goals per game) and posted nine shutouts.
All seven FSU losses came by a single goal, including three in overtime and two more in the final minutes of regulation.
Lesko scored three goals and added three assists to rank sixth on the team with nine points, while Levesque added two assists.
Pregnall turned in a spectacular season in goal, posting a 12-7-1 record with five shutouts and a 0.86 goals against average. He made 102 saves and allowed 17 goals for an 85.7 save percentage.
Senior midfielder Brad Limbacher (Annapolis, Md./Broadneck) was voted to the league's second team after tying for third with a career-high six goals, tying for fourth with three assists and ranking fourth with 15 points. He missed five games with a foot injury but scored three times in his first five games back in the lineup.
Sophomore midfielder Onyibo Ilochi (Silver Spring, Md./Rockville) and sophomore defender Mike Mutchler (Leonardtown, Md./Leonardtown) earned honorable mention honors.
Ilochi, who started all 19 games in which he played and found the net once, controlled the middle of the field with his size and strength.
Mutchler finished second on the team with a career-high six assists while helping FSU allow just 18 goals in 20 games.
Jungerheld, a midfielder, started 16 of the 18 games in which he played, and posted three goals and two assists to rank seventh on the FSU squad in scoring with nine points. Moreover, he won nearly every 50-50 ball in which he was involved.
