ONU men's soccer team nets several postseason awards
The Olivet Nazarene University (ONU) men's soccer team recently was showered with postseason honors from the College Conference of Illinois and Wisconsin (CCIW), according to onutigers.com.
Seven Tigers received all-league honors – led by Player of the Year Blake Van Bruggen – and Head Coach Dave Blahnik was named the CCIW Coach of the Year for leading the program to an unbeaten (11-0-1) season in conference play.
Van Bruggen was joined on the All-Conference First Team by teammates Ryan Totsch, Miguel Fierro, Matheus Guimaraes, Richard Schneider and Jurren van der Gun. ONU's Chris Taborn was named to the Second Team for the second time in his career, having previously been selected in 2014.
The Tigers tied a program record this season with 13 regular-season wins and also had their first-ever unbeaten league record. ONU won the conference tournament for the fourth time in five seasons and the regular-season title for the first time since 2014.
