Bucknell’s Brendan Burgdorf (Westfield, Jr.) was named to the NCAA Men’s Soccer Division 1 All-Mid-Atlantic Team by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America. Although Burgdorf scored only two goals this season, to go along with six assists, his presence on the pitch commanded the attention of opposition defenses, and allowed teammates to exploit mismatches. This is the third straight year that Burgdorf, a Pingry grad, has drawn All-Region honors and his second time on the first team. Bucknell finished the season with a 7-9-2 record.
