Soccer's Mezzadra Earns 2006 NSCAA Northeast Region Honors

UMBC senior Kevin Mezzadra (Fallston, Md./Loyola-Blakefield) earned 2006 NSCAA Men's Division I All-Northeast Region Third Team honors.


Mezzadra had been named to the America East Conference Men's Soccer First Team earlier this month. The honor was Mezzadra's third by the conference in four years. He earned All-Rookie team status in 2003 and was named to the Second Team in 2005. Despite playing in the midfield and even in the back in several league games, Mezzadra was finished tied for second in the conference in scoring with nine goals and 20 points. He finished his UMBC career with 19 goals and 46 points.


UMBC was previously in the South Atlantic region, where 13 Retrievers have earned honors since 1999.
