Four soccer players named All-RMAC
University of Colorado at Colorado Springs soccer players Marcus Reynolds, Art Cutter and Eric Foulk were named second-team All-Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference, the RMAC announced Wednesday.
In addition, Matt Eshbach was named honorable mention All-RMAC. All four UCCS honorees came from Pikes Peak area high schools.
Reynolds, a sophomore from Liberty High School, was the Mountain Lionsâ€TM leading scorer despite being moved to defender for three of the final four matches of the season. He finished the season with 17 points (seven goals and three assists), which tied him for 14th on the UCCS single-season goals list.
Cutter, a high school teammate of Reynoldsâ€TM at Liberty, used his size and athleticism to key the Mountain Lionsâ€TM defense. The sophomore missed the final seven matches of the season because of an injury and his importance to the team was evident as UCCS went a dismal 1-6 in his absence.
Foulk, a junior from Widefield High School, was a team captain playing both out of the midfield and defense. He had nine points (three goals, all on penalty kicks, and three assists). His final assist came on Oct. 1 before injuries in the defense forced him to the back row on a full-time basis. While Foulk is a junior in terms of eligibility, he is on schedule to graduate this year so it is uncertain whether he will be back in 2006.
Eshbach is the third former Liberty Lancer to make the All-RMAC lists for 2005. The junior midfielder had a goal and two assists while doing an excellent job controlling the middle of the field.
The Mountain Lions finished the season with a 6-10-1 record, 4-7-1 in the RMAC.
