Trinity Men's Soccer Places Four Players on All-Region First Team

San Antonio – The United Soccer Coaches 2017 All-West Region First Team featured four Trinity men's soccer players.

Seniors Guy Harris and Cooper Fyfe were joined by juniors Austin Michaelis and Christian Sakshaug on the First Team after leading the Tigers to a 21-2-0 record this season.

Sakshaug is now a three-time All-Region selection, while Michaelis is on the West Region squad for the second consecutive year. Michaelis was also a National Soccer Coaches Association of America (renamed United Soccer Coaches in 2017) First Team All-American last year, while Sakshaug is a two-time NSCAA All-America honoree. 

Harris and Fyfe led a Trinity defense that posted 12 shutout victories over the season, allowing just 17 goals in 23 games played. Harris was the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Co-Defensive Player of the Year and a First Team All-SCAC selection this season. Fyfe earned All-SCAC honors for the first time in his career, making the conference's Second Team.

Michaelis led Trinity with 15 goals scored and five game-winners this season and was First Team All-SCAC for the second straight year. He was the 2016 Offensive Player of the Year in the league.

Sakshaug was this season's SCAC Offensive Player of the Year, leading the Tigers with nine assists to go with his 10 goals scored.

Trinity was led by Head Coach Paul McGinlay, who completed his 27th season in charge of the Tiger men's soccer program. McGinlay led the team to its 21st overall appearance in the NCAA Tournament after winning the school's 20th overall conference title.
