Men’s Soccer Trio Receives Daktronics All-America Nod
Kansas City, Mo. – Resting comfortably the day after reaching the NCAA Division II National Championship, Lynn University’s men’s soccer team received more good news following the announcement of the Daktronics All-America team. Jason Sangha and Heiko Eberhardt were honored as Third Team selections while Harald Gracholski was an Honorable Mention pick.
This marks the 10th consecutive season the Fighting Knights have had at least one All-American selection and 25th year overall.
Sangha anchors one of the stingiest defenses in the nation. The SSC Freshman of the Year has helped the Blue & White post 13 shutouts in 21 matches, giving Lynn the third-lowest goals-against average in the nation (0.47) and third most clean sheets.
Eberhardt has been a mainstay in the LU midfield from day one, seeing action on both the outside and middle. Also a First Team All-SSC selection, he was one of the top midfield goal-scorers in the SSC, notching seven goals and 15 points.
A Sunshine State Conference First Team selection, Gracholski leads the Fighting Knights with 11 goals and 23 points. More impressive from the Cologne, Germany product is his seven game-winning goals, which leads the SSC and is the second most in program history. Additionally, Gracholski was picked as the NCAA Elite 89
