RUTHERFORD, N.J. – Felician University freshman Kenny Monfort (Spring Valley, N.Y./St. Joseph-Montvale [N.J.]) has been named to the 2015 All-Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) Men's Soccer Second Team. The conference's award winners were voted on by its 13 head coaches and announced today.
Monfort, a 5-foot-6, 150-pound striker, started all 17 games for Felician this season. He ranks eighth in the CACC in goals with 10, and, with two assists, is tied for seventh with 22 points. He posted two multi-goal games.
"Our staff was able to see from Day 1 of training that Kenny was going to be special," said second-year Felician head coach Erik Kotynski. "He is a gifted player with the ability to create his own shot. The prospect of having a player of his caliber for three more years is exciting."
Monfort is the first Felician player since 2009 to enjoy a 10-goal season. He is the first Golden Falcon since 2012 to earn all-conference honors in men's soccer.
Felician completed 2015 with a won-lost record of 2-15. The Golden Falcons finished 13th in the CACC with a 1-11 league mark.
Felician has now had two student-athletes earn all-conference honors this academic year.
