Men's Soccer Players Earn NESCAC Honors
November 9, 2006
Three members of the Middlebury College men's soccer team were honored today when the NESCAC announced its all-conference teams. Seniors David Lee (Mendham, N.J.) and Zack Toth (Carlisle, Mass.), along with sophomore Casey Ftorek (Wolfeboro, N.H.) were all named to the squads. The three are preparing to lead Middlebury into the NCAA Regionals this weekend at NJIT.
Ftorek was named to the first-team in his inaugural year at Middlebury after transferring from Union. The sophomore has tied the school record for points in a season with 34, to go along with his team-leading 13 goals and eight assists. Ftorek leads the NESCAC in points, while ranking second in goals and assists this season.
Zach Toth earns first-team honors after a great year between the posts for the Panthers. The senior had a great weekend at the NESCAC Tournament, allowing no goals in 200 minutes of action, earning NESCAC Player of the Week honors. Toth was 10-4-1 on the season with a 0.99 goals against average and six shutouts, giving him 14 in his two years as a starter.
A big part of Toth's success can be credited to Lee, who earned second-team honors as a back. The senior helped lead a Middlebury defense that allowed only 0.92 goals/game this season. Lee also scored a goal in Middlebury's NESCAC first-round win at Bowdoin.
