Dec. 2, 2002
Junior forward Attila Vendegh (Bratislava, Slovakia) and sophomore defender Trevor McEachron (Woodbridge, VA) were named to the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) All-South Atlantic Regional Team on Monday. Vendegh, the two-time Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) player of the year, earned second team honors while McEachron made the third team.
Vendegh led the CAA with career highs, 16 goals and seven assists, as he became the most prolific scorer in ODU history with 46 goals and 108 points. He was also named to All-CAA first team for the third time this season and was recognized as an Academic All-American. He was on the All-South Atlantic Region first team as a sophomore after making the third team as a freshman.
McEachron makes his first appearance on the All-South Atlantic Region this year after earning Honorable Mention Freshman All-American distinction in 2001. He was also on the All-CAA first team after making 19 starts in 2002 for the Monarchs. He scored his first career goal earlier this year to defeat Ga. State 2-1.
Vendegh and McEachron help lead the ODU men's soccer team to a 10-9-1 finish this year as the Monarchs won their first ever NCAA Tournament game. The 3-0 win over Richmond in the NCAA first round was the first game hosted by ODU and helped them reach the second round for first time ever.
The CAA was well represented on the All-Region squad as William and Mary's Carlos Garcia and Ralph Bean, Towson's Machel Millwood, and VCU's Milorad Djordjevic and Gonzalo Segares were each named to the first team.
