Four Men's Soccer Players Named All Region

November 12, 2012

Four Tompkins Cortland Community College men’s soccer players have earned NJCAA Region III all-region honors. Edem Wemene (Nottingham H.S./Syracuse), Michael Raftu (Marta Valle H.S./Manhattan), and Sean Streb (Lansing H.S./Lansing) all made the first team while Dylan Palacio (Long Beach H.S./Long Beach) was chosen to the second team. A total of 26 players were voted onto the team by the coaches of Region III. Genesee Community College had the most selections with six followed by Herkimer County Community College with five. Broome Community College joined Tompkins Cortland with four selections. Mohawk Valley Community College had two selections and Clinton Community College and Jamestown Community College each had a single honoree.

Wemene and Raftu were each repeat selections, the third straight year the Panthers have had a repeat all-region honoree. Tompkins Cortland now has been represented on the all-region team each year since 2001, and only twice during that time have the Panthers had a single selection.
