KLENOFSKY EARNS NSCAA FIRST TEAM ALL-REGION
KANSAS CITY, MO - Monmouth University men’s soccer goalkeeper Eric Klenofsky was named to the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) First Team All-Northeast Region, the organization announced. The MAAC Preseason Player of the Year played in 11 games, recording a 5-4-2 record with four shutouts. His 36 career wins are the second-most in conference history, and he ends his Monmouth career with 32 shutouts.
“We are very happy to see Eric get this recognition,” said Monmouth head coach Rob McCourt. “He has had a fantastic career here at Monmouth. He is a champion both on the field and in the classroom, and truly defines what it means to be a Monmouth Hawk. It’s going to be fun watching his career after Monmouth.”
The senior was named MAAC Co-Goalkeeper of the Year last month. Klenofsky ranked first in the conference with a .841 save percentage, second with a 0.87 goals against average, and was tied for fifth with four shutouts. He averaged 4.82 saves per game, which was third in the MAAC and recorded 53 saves, which were the eighth-most in the conference. Klenofsky leaves Monmouth with the fourth-best goals against average in program history (0.745) and the third highest save percentage (0.842). He was named MAAC Defensive Player of the Week twice this season, also earning a Second Team All-MAAC selection.
Klenofsky earned All-MAAC Second Team in 2013 and 2014, before elevating to the First Team and being named MAAC Goalkeeper of the Year in 2015. He was the 2013 and 2014 NCAA Division I Statistical Champion in goals-against average and posted a 1.00 GAA and .784 save percentage with seven shutouts last year.
