Men’s soccer

Two Yellowjackets were honored with All-North Region recognition by the United Soccer Coaches.

UMAC tournament MVP Fernando Bicahlo was named second team and UMAC Defensive Player of the Year Jonah Garcia was selected third team.

Bicahlo proved to be one of the Yellowjackets’ most valuable players down the stretch recording either an assist or a goal in their five-straight regular season-ending wins.

He was a first-team All-UMAC selection after tallying 18 points with six goals and six assists. He also helped UWS advance to the UMAC title game with the game-winning overtime goal on a free kick opportunity.

Garcia capped off his senior season as the top defensive player in the UMAC and an All-UMAC honoree. He led a Yellowjacket defense that held teams to a UMAC-low 1.14 goals per game.

In conference play, the Yellowjackets allowed just eight goals in 12 games for a 0.669 goals against average (GAA). The defender also added four goals to his impressive resume this season.
