RUTHERFORD, N.J. – Felician University junior Maxi Ojeda (Yonkers, N.Y./DeWitt Clinton) has been named to the 2017 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.
Williams, a 5-foot-7, 140-pound midfielder, played in 13 games for Felician this season, starting 11. He was second on the Golden Falcons with 11 points, totaling four goals and three assists.
"We graduated two quality midfielders last year in Makesi Lewis and all-conference selection Martin Williams," said fourth-year Felician head coach Erik Kotynski. "Maxi stepped right in and took on a leadership role in our midfield."
Ojeda was in his first season as a Golden Falcons after playing two years for ASA (N.Y.) College. He is a 2013 graduate of DeWitt Clinton High School of Bronx, N.Y.
Felician completed 2017 with a won-lost record of 5-10-2, an improvement of one victory over the previous year and the program's most wins since 2012. The Golden Falcons tied for eighth place in the CACC with a 4-6-2 league mark, missing out on the conference playoffs via tiebreaker.
"Maxi's exceptional quality of play almost carried our team into the playoffs," Kotynski said. "We look forward to another year of individual and team growth with him in our midfield."
Ojeda is the first Felician student-athlete to earn all-conference honors this academic year.
