Four Nittany Lions earn PSUAC Men's Soccer Awards

Four members from the Men's Soccer team have been selected as First and Second-Team All-Conference for the Penn State University Athletic Conference 2015 soccer awards.  Making the list for First-Team are Junior Midfielder Kyle Venditti (Berwick, PA) and Sophomore Forward Steven Principe (Lake Harmony, PA). Placing on the roster for Second-Team are freshman Defender Tyler Wyllie (Benton, PA) and sophomore Goalie Jimmy Fisher (Glen Allen, VA).

Midfielder - Kyle Venditti            

Venditti has had an impressive season this fall placing in the top five on almost every statistical leaderboard the PSUAC has to offer. The midfielder leads the conference in assists with 13 and currently sits in third place in scoring with 18 goals on the year. Venditti has garnered a pair of hat-tricks throughout 15 games in 2015 and leads the team in points scored, racking up 49 points thus far in his third season with the squad. The junior had perhaps his best performance in a contest against Williamson on October sixth where Venditti managed to have his hand on every point, bringing in two goals and three assists resulting in a 5-1 victory.

Forward - Steven Principe          

Following up an outstanding freshman campaign Principe has been equally effective in his sophomore season. The forward has been a strong force on the field netting 11 goals, good for seventh best in the PSUAC. The sophomore also finds himself in the seventh spot for points in the conference with 26. Principe garnered a hat trick this season in a home game against Mont Alto where he was able to net three of his four shots.

Defender - Tyler Wyllie            

One of the Nittany Lion's top newcomers in 2015, Tyler Wyllie has established himself as an outstanding defender and opportunistic scorer. Wyllie has recorded four goals and one assist in 2015, including two game-winning scores. Wyllie scored the lone goal in a 1-0 victory on the road at SUNY Delhi early in the season and followed that performance with some late game heroics against Berkeley College (NJ), ending the game in the second overtime period.

Goalkeeper - Jimmy Fisher            

In the off-season, Jimmy Fisher made the transition from defender to goalkeeper and since that point the Lions have come to rely on his prowess in the net. Fisher has started in every match this season and secured an impressive 100 saves in 2015, good for second best in the PSUAC. The sophomore goalie finds himself in third place overall with a .787 save percentage and led the Lions to three shut-out victories on the season.
