WILLIAMSTOWN, MA -- For the second time this fall Williams College senior soccer players Mark Sisco-Tolomeo (Franklin Lakes, NJ) and Tobias Muellers (Burlington, VT) have been awarded post season honors.
This time both Sisco-Tolomeo and Muellers were named to the United Soccer Coaches All-New England Third Team by the region's coaches.
"I join everyone in the Williams Soccer family in congratulating Mark and Tobias on being selected All-New England," said Eph head coach Erin Sullivan. "They are deserving recipients and we commend them for their achievements over the past four seasons."
Previously Sisco-Tolomeo was named to the All-NESCAC First Team, while Muellers was named to the Second Team.
Both Sisco-Tolomeo and Muellers lettered all four years for the Ephs with their roles on the team growing each season. Sisco-Tolomeo led the Ephs in scoring this season and the two previous seasons, while Muellers has anchored the Eph back line and was a team captain this year.
"Though they are very different personalities off the field, Mark and Tobias do share several things in common," noted Sullivan. "They are everything a coach and teammate could ask for: fierce competitors, natural leaders, and reliable contributors. They have both been impact players from day one at Williams and elevated their game each and every season. They are the types of players teammates relish the privilege of playing alongside and opponents lament the task of competing against."
This season the Ephs went 8-3-5, advanced to the NESCAC Tournament, and Sisco-Tolomeo tallied a team-high four goals and added one assist to lead the Ephs in goals and points. One of Sisco-Tolomeo's goals was a game-winner. He started all 15 games that he played this year.
Muellers helped lead an Eph back line that allowed but 10 goals in the 16-game season, an average of 0.67 goals per game. Muellers netted one goal on the year when he came forward to head in a game-winner.
Over his four years Mark Sisco-Tolomeo netted 19 goals in 60 games and added two assists for 40 career points. In 61 games on the Eph back line Muellers netted three goals.
"Mark and Tobias rose to the occasion time and again for our team this past season and this is a well-deserved and fitting capstone to their careers at Cole Field," Sullivan stated.
