KALAMAZOO, Mich. - Just two weeks after being honored as a member of the United Soccer Coaches All-Central Region Third Team, junior Ben Meschke has been named to the site's Scholar All-Central Region Second Team.
Meschke, a forward from Williamston, Mich. (Williamston), has earned plenty of accolades following his second season as a primary attacker for the Hornets. Along with the two awards from the United Soccer Coaches, Meschke also earned First-Team recognition from the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association.
This is also not the first award Meschke has earned from his efforts in the classroom as the junior earned a spot on the MIAA Academic Honor Roll last season.
On the field, Meschke led Kalamazoo with 14 goals and 29 points this year. His attacking led the team to an 11-5-2 record overall and 4-2-1 in MIAA play. The team earned its first NCAA III Tournament berth since 2001.
