Lycoming College junior goalkeeper Chris Solecki earns CoSIDA Academic All-District Team honors

WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. – Holding the lowest single-season goals-against average (0.53) in program history, junior goalkeeper Chris Solecki (Hainesport, N.J./Lenape) became the first Lycoming College men’s soccer player since 1995 to be named to the CoSIDA Academic All-District First Team, the organization announced on Thursday, Nov. 9.

CoSIDA Academic All-District Men’s and Women's Soccer Teams are released to recognize the nation’s top student-athletes for their combined performances athletically and in the classroom. First-team Academic All-District honorees advance to the CoSIDA Academic All-America Team ballot, where first-, second- and third-team All-America honorees will be announced in December.

Solecki, a biology: anatomy and physiology major, was the first Warrior to earn the honor since the program’s first All-American, Pat Doody, was named to the first team in 1995.

An Honorable Mention All-MAC Commonwealth selection, Solecki has helped the Warriors tie a program record with 18 wins in a season, as he’s earned the win in all of them while making 64 saves. He has completed seven shutouts while playing in four others. His 0.865 save percentage is 18th in the nation and second in the conference.

Lycoming (18-2) will host Lehman on Saturday, Nov. 11 at 11 a.m. in the opening round of the NCAA Championship at the Shangraw Athletic Complex. In the other opening round match at 1:30 p.m., Franklin & Marshall takes on Drew with the winner of each game playing each other on Sunday, Nov. 12 at 1 p.m.
