A pair of Kentucky men's soccer players were recognized Thursday when the National Soccer Coaches Association of America announced its All-Great Lakes Region soccer team. Nathan Fleetwood earned first-team honors, while Jamal Shteiwi was named to the third team.
Fleetwood, a junior midfielder, has been a first-team All-Mid-American Conference selection the past two seasons while leading the Wildcats in assists. The Adelaide, Australia, native earned All-Tournament and MAC Player of the Week honors twice this season, leading UK to a 10-9-0 record.
Shteiwi, a sophomore forward, led the Cats in scoring this season with seven goals and 15 points. The Cincinnati, Ohio, product scored the decisive goal in three matches was one of only four Wildcats to appear in all 19 games in 2002. He was named the MAC Player of the Week on Sept. 9, and also earned first-team All-MAC honors.
Kentucky is the only MAC school to have multiple players honored as regional All-Americans. All-time at Kentucky, 13 different Cats have been named regional All-Americans. Five Wildcats have earned the honor more than once, bringing the total number of regional All-Americans at UK to 20.
