Although their season came to an end last week, the men’s soccer team had five members earn All-East Region Honors by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America. Three members were named to the first-team, including senior midfielder Per Forgaard, junior forward Jason Lampkin, and sophomore back David Arvidsson. Junior goal-keeper Jesper Malmstrom got a second-team nod, and senior midfielder Matias Ruiz earned third-team recognition. In addition to this honor, Forgaard and Arvidsson were named All-Americans by the same committee. On the women’s side, four student-athletes were also named to the All-East Region roster and they included: senior forward Susanne Vistnes, who landed on the first-team, junior back Kristin Brandman, who earned a second-team nod, and senior back Katie LaManna and junior midfielder Julia Backman, who both earned third-team praise. And no surprise here, but Vistnes landed on the All-America team for the fourth straight season.
