Senior captain Brook Addisu and junior forward Zion Friday earned first team accolades while senior Isiah Dorsey earned second-team honors.
Addisu finishes his Spartan career as a three-time, first-team All-CAC defender. He finished hs senior year with nine points on three goals as two of his tallies came on penalty kicks including the game-winning PK in the Spartans' CAC quarterfinal win over Salisbury.
Addisu concluded his Spartan career playing in and starting 74 matches. He had 16 career points on seven goals and two assists with three game-winning goals. He was 2-for-2 in penalty kicks for his career.
Addisu led a defense that recorded seven shutouts and had a goals against average 1.20.
Friday led the season as the Spartans' leading scorer as he had 17 points on eight goals and one assist in 16 games. Friday's biggest game of the year when he tallied a natural hat trick in the October 5 win over Southern Virginia. Unfortunately for York, Friday would only play in five of the Spartans final nine games of the season due to an injury he suffered in the next game against Salisbury.
Friday has now played 44 career games for the Spartans and has totaled 44 career points on 19 goals and six assists. Friday is fourth in the CAC in goals scored and seventh in points scored. He is now a three-time All-CAC honoree as he was a second team pick as a freshman and also as a sophomore.
Dorsey made a positional change early in the year, moving from forward to defense and the change was great for the Spartan squad. Dorsey used his athleticism and skill to give a huge boost to the Spartan defensive unit. Dorsey had a goal and two assists for four points as he played in all 20 games with 15 starts.
Dorsey finished his Spartan career with 38 games played with 33 starts. He notched 13 points on four goals and five assists with one game-winning goal.
The Spartans must replace Addisu and Dorsey but will return Friday and four other top ten scorers from this year's 9-9-2 Spartan squad.
