The men's soccer team, coached by Sean Sullivan and assistants Ashley Edgar and Paul David Seldis, ended their season at 15-5, the best record in school history. The Slugs also had a record nine shutouts. "We accomplished all the goals we set for ourselves, says Sullivan. "The only one missing was an invitation to the national tournament. We're losing only three seniors, so we will be very strong in '97." The graduating seniors are Matt Rodkey and cocaptains Steve Thomas and Ryuji Ueda.
