Boys Soccer Notes: College Players, Rankings, Standings, Stats

We’ve got some local kids doing well in the college ranks. Let’s give them some love this week.

Former Albany High standout Mason Zupan continued his dream of playing soccer, doing so at Fort Lewis College in Durango, CO and on Dec. 3 in Pensacola FL the Skyhawks beat Lynn 3-2 to win the NCAA Men’s Division II National Championship. It was the school’s third soccer title and the team finished 24-1.
Zupan, as a redshirt freshman, played seven regular season matches, as the defender scored a goal, and he played in the NCAA Tournament against Metro State.
Chabot College also had a number of local kids recognized recently as Salvador Barroyo of Moreau Catholic High and Jesus Leon from Tennyson High were selected First-Team All Coast Conference.
Carlos Gonzalez of San Lorenzo and Alan Mitchell from East Bay Arts High in Hayward were second team and Leon, former Newark Memorial standout Junior Navarro and Alejandro Gonzalez from Mt. Eden were All-American nominees.

Rankings

No change to the top six. Despite Clayton’s very close and hard to swallow loss against SRV, nobody stepped up to knock them out of the top five. Monte Vista and Amador Valley join the top 15, and very deservedly so. Both look like legit contenders. The EBAL just keeps looking stronger.
College Park jumps up two spots, as this team continues to look impressive and Ygnacio Valley debuts in the top 15 as does Bishop O’Dowd.
