Men's Soccer Lands Six on All-CC List; F&M Wins Coaching Staff of the Year

LANCASTER, Pa. – The Franklin & Marshall men's soccer team saw six players place on the All-Centennial Conference squad. In addition, the team's coaching staff picked up a major award by winning Coaching Staff of the Year, as they were selected by their peers after going 12-2-4 overall and 7-0-2 in conference play to qualify for the NCAA Tournament. As the award was previously titled Coach of the Year, Dan Wagner won the honor in 2019.  

Oscar Horwitz earned first-team All-Centennial Conference for the first time in his career after a terrific regular season where he scored a team-high seven goals. Horwitz also tallied a game-winning goal against Washington College (Sept. 17) en route to winning CC Offensive Player of the Week three times this fall.

Shay Adamson was named first-team All-CC after earning second-team honors last season. All three of Adamson's goals this season were game-winners as the senior was awarded CC Offensive Player of the Week for his score against No. 15 Johns Hopkins (Oct. 29).

Connor Anderko was recognized as the third Diplomat to earn first-team All-Centennial. Anderko anchored the Diplomat's defense as F&M posted a team goals-against average of 0.722, which is third lowest in the conference.

Isaac Mintz earned second-team All-CC honors in his sophomore season after starting every game for the Diplomats so far. Mintz helped F&M shutout their opponents in nine games this fall, while also recording three points this season. Mintz' effort on defense helped him earn CC Defensive Player of the Week in late October.

Koa Kaliebe was named Honorable Mention All-CC in a season where he led the Diplomats in assists with four. Kaliebe also scored game-winning goals in the victories against Muhlenberg (Sept. 28) and Rosemont (Oct. 5).

After a solid regular season in net, Sam Farrell earned Honorable Mention All-Centennial honors, posting a goals-against average of 0.81. Farrell also had a save-percentage of 81.9 percent, while recording six shutouts during the regular season.

In addition to the six award winners, Joshua Slager was named to the Centennial Conference All-Sportsmanship Team. The senior appeared in 13 games with 11 starts this fall, recording a shot on goal in the scoreless draw at Lancaster Bible (Oct. 12).

F&M hosts the first round of the NCAA Tournament Saturday at 1:00 p.m. as it takes on St. Joseph (Conn.) at Tylus Field.
