Three Players Are Men's Soccer All-Region Honorees

Three senior members of the Hope men's soccer team have received Division III Great Lakes All-Region honors from the National Soccer Coaches Association of America.

Forward Jack Abe of Naperville, Ill. (Naperville North HS) and midfielder Kevin McMahon of Grand Rapids, Mich. (Forest Hills Central HS) were named to the All-Region second team while senior defender James Trebilcock of Haslett, Mich. (Haslett HS) is a third team honoree.

The All-Region team honors players from NCAA Division III colleges in Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania.

Hope's honorees are among five MIAA players to be honored.

All three Hope players were also named to the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association (MIAA) all-conference first team this fall.

Kevin McMahon's older brother, Pat, was an All-Region first team honoree in 2006.

The Flying Dutchmen, coached by Steven Smith, posted a 14-2-4 record and finished second in the MIAA standings.
