BELLINGHAM, Wash. - Western Washington University forward Andrew Weishaar (Sr., Puyallup) was a third-team selection on the 2013 National Soccer Coaches Association of America/NCAA Division II All-America Men's Soccer Team announced Friday.
Weishaar is just the second Viking player to earn NSCAA All-America honors. The other was midfielder Matt Pele, a second-team pick in 2008.
Weishaar led the Vikings with 10 goals and finished second among Great Northwest Athletic Conference leaders in goals per game (0.56) and points per game (1.28). He tied for the GNAC lead in game-winning goals with five.
Weishaar ended his four-year career fifth among WWU leaders in goals with 26, sixth in points with 63 and tied for 14th in assists with 11.
WWU posted the fourth-best record in school history at 11-4-3, winning six of its last seven games, and placed third in the GNAC, tying for its best finish since 2010, at 9-2-3. The Vikings defeated national semifinalist Simon Fraser, 3-0, in their season finale.
