Nov. 10, 2011
HARRISON, N.J. - University of Cincinnati men's soccer forward Cole DeNormandie (Lincoln, Mass./Lincoln-Sudbury Regional) was named to the BIG EAST Conference all-Freshman team on Thursday night at an awards ceremony held on the eve of Friday's conference semifinal matches at Red Bull Arena.
DeNormandie becomes the first Bearcat to earn BIG EAST all-Freshman honors since UC joined the conference in 2005. He is the sixth all-freshman honoree during head coach Hylton Dayes' tenure at UC.
The 6-0 forward led the Bearcats with seven goals and 15 points in starting all 18 contests up top. He was the second-leading freshman goalscorer in the conference and scored the most goals for a UC freshman since Paul Jungkunz scored 12 in 1983.
The Bearcats finished the season 6-11-1 overall dealing with injuries and youth throughout the campaign. UC started five true freshmen and a first-year transfer, getting 14 of its 22 goals from first-year players.
