BOONE, N.C. — Appalachian State University men’s soccer standouts Philip Cavicchia (Brampton, Ont.) and Keon McPherson (Scarborough, Tobago) have been named to the 2004 National Soccer Coaches Association of America/adidas all-south third team.

Cavicchia finished his Appalachian career as one of the most accomplished goalkeepers in school history. The senior earned five shutouts this season in leading the Mountaineers to a 10-7-3 record and a berth in the Southern Conference tournament semifinals for the first time in four seasons. Cavicchia managed a 1.46 goals-against average this year while collecting 83 saves.

This marks the second such honor for McPherson who also earned the NSCAA all-south distinction following the 2002 season. The senior was a key to ASU’s success this season, tallying six goals and five assists. McPherson’s 17 points were the eighth-highest total in the SoCon and his 1.00 points per game average was fourth-best in the league.

“These are well-deserved honors for these two seniors,” said Appalachian head men’s soccer coach Paul Stahlschmidt. “Being on this list and among the best Division I players in the country at each of their positions are amazing individual accomplishments. These players are also directly responsible for helping our very young team along this past season. I am proud of how they represented Appalachian on and off the field.”
