Soutar was voted the All-MAAC Second Team Faceoff Specialist after an outstanding sophomore season at the faceoff X. He ranked seventh in the country in faceoff winning percentage (69.6 percent) after winning 96-of-138 faceoffs and 22nd in ground balls per game (6.57).

Joining Soutar on the All-MAAC Second Team was Smart, who was selected at the long stick midfielder position. The fifth-year senior picked up a career-high 32 ground balls and tied Hervada for the team lead with 10 caused turnovers. Smart’s recognition was the first All-MAAC honor of his career.
