Men’s Soccer Earns Four Individual Big Ten Honors

Penn State had four players honored by the Big Ten Friday as part of its annual postseason awards.

Connor Maloney was named to the All-Big Ten First Team. The senior has been named to this list each of the past three years and earned All-Big Ten Freshman Team in 2013. Maloney leads the team in both goals and assists this season, scoring seven and setting up five.

Robby Sagel was named to the All-Big Ten Second Team. The senior defender has been the team’s rock at the back since joining the Nittany Lions last season from Temple. He started all 17 games this season, helping the Nittany Lions record five shutouts. He also scored the game-winning goal in overtime against Michigan State back in mid-October for an important conference win.

Pierre Reedy was named to the All-Big Ten Freshman Team. The midfielder started each game this season, assisting on two goals. He scored the first goal in his Penn State career in the last home match of the regular season to help Penn State to a 1-0 win over Wright State.

Redshirt sophomore defender Ryan Gallagher was one of the Big Ten Sportsmanship Award honorees this season.

The Nittany Lions will have a chance to keep their season alive on Sunday against No. 15 Michigan State in the Big Ten quarterfinals. Penn State has played Michigan State in the conference tournament each of the past two years, with the Spartans getting the best of Penn State in the 2014 quarterfinals and the Nittany Lions ousting Michigan State in the 2015 opening round.
