Three Soccer 'Cats Named to NSCAA All-Atlantic Region Team

BUCKHANNON – Three members of the West Virginia Wesleyan men's soccer team was honored on the 2016 NSCAA NCAA Division II Men's All-Atlantic Region Teams.

Junior Kevin Nyambi was selected to the All-Atlantic Region First Team while senior Jens Demul was named to the Second Team and senior Alex White was tabbed for the Third Team.

Nyambi is a midfielder from Chalons-en-Champagn, France.

He started 16 of Wesleyan's 18 games and was a force from his midfield position and helped a defense that posted four shutouts.

Last month, he was named to the Mountain East Conference First Team.

Demul is a defender from Antwerp, Belgium.

He started in all 18 games he played this year and led Wesleyan in goals scored with six and tied for the team lead in points with 12.

He also anchored a defense that posted four shutouts.

Demul was earlier selected to the CCA All-Region Second Team and was named to the CoSIDA Academic All-American Second Team.

He was a Second Team selection on the All-MEC squad.

He was selected as the MEC Defensive Player of the Week on two different occasions.

White is a defender from Hurricane, W. Va.

Like Nyambi and Demul, White was a force in the backfield. 

White was named to the All-MEC Honorable mention team.

"Each of the players selected for this honor truly deserve it as we were a definite force this year in the region," remarked head coach Gavin Donaldson." Kevin, Jens and Alex anchored a very tough defensive core that grew better as the season progressed.  I am very pleased that they have been recognized at this level."
