Monheit Named to Jewish Sports Review All-America Team
LOS ANGELES, Calif. – Senior Matthew Monheit (Abington, Pa.) was selected to the 2013 Men's College All-America Soccer Team, as announced by the Jewish Sports Review. He was one of 11 men's soccer players in Division II and III programs that was tabbed to the first team.
Monheit was the only Engineer to appear in and start all 20 games this season. His eight goals and 24 points were both good for second on the team, while his eight assists had him first. After MIT hosted the New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) for the first time in a decade, Monheit was named to the league's All-Conference first team. A few days later, he was named to the 2013 New England Intercollegiate Soccer League (NEISL) All-Stars Team, joining just a handful of MIT men's soccer players in program history to be selected to the team.
With its record of 6-0-1 in league action, MIT was top in the conference, winning the regular season title and the right to host the NEWMAC Tournament. After falling in the final, the Cardinal and Gray received an at-large bid to the NCAA Division III Tournament, making its second consecutive NCAA appearance and its third overall. The Engineers ended their season in the first round with a record of 13-5-2.
