Judson's Germano and Mihalopoulos pile up the honors
Judson University men’s soccer players Luis Germano and Niko Mihalopoulos are piling up the postseason awards in their first seasons at the school.
Germano, who finished the season with a team-leading 18 goals and 44 points, was named First Team NCCAA All-American, NAIA honorable mention and United Soccer Coaches All-American.
The 5-foot-10, 176-pound freshmen was also named Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference Freshmen of the Year and NCCAA North-Central Region Player of the Year.
Mihalopoulos, a junior transfer from the University of Illinois-Chicago who finished second on the team with 12 goals, was named third-team NCCAA All-American and as a member of the NCCAA North Central Region Team.
"It has been great to see that Germano and Niko keep adding awards to their amazing first years at Judson, and I am sure it is also a consequence of having a great team behind them to support," Judson coach Rafa Heck said, according to the school’s website. "They both have worked hard this year, and I am excited to see what the future holds for them moving forward."
