12 PBC Men's Soccer Players Named D2CCA All-Region

NEWBERRY, S.C. -- Twelve Peach Belt Conference men's soccer players have been named All-Region by the Division II Conference Commissioners' Assocation (D2CCA).  Eight of those were named first-team All-Region and will now be eligible for All-America consideration.  Young Harris led the league with eight selections, including region Player of the Year Mikie Rowe.  Only five first-team players were not in the Peach Belt.

Rowe became the 13th player in league history to score 20 or more goals in a season with 22 to lead the PBC in 2018.  The senior from Wexford, Ireland, is currently third  in NCAA Division II with 1.29 goals per game and fourth in 2.88 points per game.  His 22 goals is the eighth-highest single-season total in PBC history and his conference-leading 49 points is tied for 11th most. Named the PBC Player of the Week four times this year and the United Soccer Coaches National Player of the Week on Sept. 13, he also leads the PBC in game-winning goals and shots.  He was the fourth Mountain Lion to be named the PBC Player of the Year and kept the award at Young Harris for the fifth time in the last six years. Rowe also earned the league's Select Sports Golden Ball Award for scoring the most goals in the league. Rowe was the third Mountain Lion to earn the Golden Ball in the program's history. Rowe has a 3.44 GPA as a business and public policy major.

The D2CCA All-Region team is selected by Sports Information Directors from the Peach Belt Conference, Conference Carolinas and the South Atlantic Conference.
