FREDERICKSBURG, Va.- The Salisbury University men's soccer team collected one major Capital Athletic Conference (CAC) award and four players picked up All-CAC honors, as announced by the league on Friday.
Senior midfielder Ryan Spadin was named the first-ever CAC Men's Soccer Scholar-Athlete of the Year. The biology major from Delmar, Md. carries at 3.86 grade-point average and has proved himself in the classroom and the soccer pitch. Spadin was also selected for the All-CAC Second Team for his second All-CAC honors in his four years as a Sea Gull. Spadin recorded a pair of goals and an assist in his senior season, along with receiving CAC Offensive Player of the Week accolades the week of October 21.
Dolph Hegewisch, a junior midfielder, picked up All-CAC First Team honors. The Crofton, Md. native earned his first-team accolades after posting four goals and six assists for 14 points in the 2019 campaign. Hegewisch's six assists ranked second in the conference. This is Hegewich's second All-CAC award of his career after receiving second-team honors in 2016.
Spadin was joined by fellow senior Alex Eiben and sophomore Cullen Myers as honorees on the All-CAC Second Team. Myers picked up his first All-CAC selection after a breakout season for the Sea Gulls where he posted four goals and four assists to total 12 points. Two of his four goals were game-winners. Eiben notched the second all-conference award his career. Eiben led the Sea Gull defense to a goals-against-average of 1.19, good for third in the CAC. Eiben and the rest of the backline registered four shutouts in 2019, including a pair of clean sheets in conference play.
