Athlete honors come with season end

By Elliot Heis

As the soccer seasons ended for the men’s and women’s teams, a
new set of acknowledgements came for select athletes’ efforts this
year.

From the men’s team, senior midfielder Miguel Abascal was
selected on the All-CCAA first-team. Abascal tallied six goals and
six assists during his last season with the Broncos.

“Miguel was a field general for us and a leader on and off the
field,” Cal Poly head coach Lance Thompson told Bronco Athletics.
“He had the ability to elevate the level of play for everyone else
on the team.”

Abascal ended his career sixth overall on Cal Poly’s all-time
points standings with 40, and sixth in overall goals with 15.

Junior forward Tyler Reinhart received All-CCAA second-team
honors for the season after leading the Broncos in goals with 10
and points with 26.

“I felt that Tyler’s work rate was second to none,” Thompson
said. “He’s so dangerous on creating chances. He was a threat every
time he had the ball.”

Reinhart scored four goals Oct. 2 in the Broncos’ 4-2 win over
Cal State Dominguez Hills setting a new Cal Poly single-game record
and tying the CCAA single-game record.

The Broncos will enjoy Reinhart’s influence next season when he
returns for his senior year.

On the women’s team, sophomore midfielder Justine Barclay was
named on the All-CCAA first-team., senior forward received
second-team honors, and junior forward Britany Garrett was given an
honorable mention.

Barclay was an influential midfielder who fed passes and
dictated play for the Broncos.

She scored a hat trick in Cal Poly’s 3-2 win over Cal State
Stanislaus Oct. 16.

“The fact that Justine returns next year and earns this honor is
a great deal,” Broncos’ head coach Isabelle Harvey told Bronco
Athletics. “I’m pleased to have her back. It’s great recognition
for her and our program. She deserves it.”

Carroll led the team in goals with nine, four of which came in
her final game against Cal State San Bernardino setting a school
single-game record.

The awarding of these team selection caps off a successful
season for the Broncos, and all players are well deserving.
