Sonoma State men’s soccer standouts Cory Taufer and Brook Johnson have been named to the National Soccer Coaches Association (NSCAA) All-West Region Second Team.
Taufer, a sophomore midfielder from Clovis, anchored a rugged defense as the Seawolves yielded just 22 goals in 23 games.
Johnson, the senior goalkeeper, led the California Collegiate Athletic Association in saves with 101 and was among the conference leaders with a 0.90 goals against average. Johnson recorded eight shutouts, raising his career record total to 32. He earned first team All-CCAA honors earlier this season.
Junior Ryan Hall and sophomores Trevor Hurst and Cam Vickers earned Third Team all-region honors.
Second in scoring on the team was Vickers, from Lake Tapps, Wash., with three goals and nine assists.
Hurst, a midfielder from Santa Rosa, was third on the team in scoring with four goals and five assists.
Another defensive stalwart was Hall, a sophomore from Trabuco Canyon.
Sonoma State captured the CCAA North Division for the sixth consecutive season. The Seawolves made a third straight appearance in the NCAA Division II Men’s Soccer Tournament, where they took an opening round loss. The Seawolves finished 14-5-4.
