ROCK HILL, S.C. – LMU's Mario Pinto was named to the All-South Atlantic Conference first Team and SAC Freshman of the Year, officials announced Thursday.

Overall, LMU had four first-team and one second-team All-Conference honorees.  Pinto's awards come after a season in which he finished second in the league in points, goals and shots.  He joins teammates Watkins, midfielder Chris Nash and defender Callum Home on the first team. 

For the second-straight season, Anderson forward Lasse Sohrweide has been named the SAC Men’s Soccer Player of the Year. 

Sohrweide, who also earned a spot among the All-Conference first team forwards, led the SAC in points, goals, game-winning goals, shots and assists.  His standout season helped Anderson finish a perfect 9-0 in the SAC and capture the outright regular-season conference championship.

Sohrweide joins five other Trojans earning All-SAC distinction, including four more on the first team in midfielders Shu Ogawa and Mark Smith, defender Kevin Butler and goalkeeper Lukas Hesse.

Joining AU with six All-Conference selections apiece are Tusculum and Mars Hill, which finished No. 2 and No. 3 in the regular-season SAC standings, respectively.

MHC had four first-team picks, led by forward Stephen Bivens, who finished top-10 in the SAC in every major offensive statistical category.  He is joined by fellow first-teamers Rury Caulfield, Troy Chavez and Zac Scott – who was part of a three-way tie for first-team goalkeeper with Hesse and Lincoln Memorial’s Michael Watkins.

Headlining Tusculum’s six All-SAC members is first-team defender Matias Rubio.  The Pioneers also placed five on the second team.  TC’s strong season was led by Allen Vital, who earned SAC Coach of the Year honors after the Pioneers finished 6-1-2 in the league. 

Completing the All-SAC first team is Carson-Newman forward Robbie Hill, the No. 3 points and goal scorer in the conference this season. 

C-N placed one student-athlete on the second team as well, while Catawba had three named to the second team. 

Tusculum and Wingate tied for the SAC Fair Play Award, which recognizes the teams that accumulated the fewest red and yellow cards during conference play.
