UMBC's Pete Caringi III (Perry Hall/Calvert Hall) earned the 2012 Eastern College Athletic Conference Division I Offensive Player of the Year honors for soccer, the conference announced Thursday.
The honors were from UMBC and ECAC, according to a news release.
Caringi is the second UMBC player to win this award in the past four years. Levi Houapeu also won this honor three years ago, it states.
This season, Caringi was named Striker of the Year in the America East. His 14 goals and 32 points led the conference, and Caringi stands 13th in both total goals and points, according to the release.
The only thing that bothered Caringi and UMBC is that he hurt his ankle in the early minutes of the America East title game. He didn't play much after that, especially in the two NCAA tournament games.
In addition, senior defender Liam Paddock was a First-Team ECAC All-Star. He's the fifth player in UMBC history to get CoSIDA Academic All-America First team honors, it states.
Paddock also got picked as the America East's Defender of the Year for this strong effort this season.
