College soccer

Pair of Hens honored: The Delaware men’s soccer program had two players named this week as NSCAA NCAA Division I All-Midwest Region selections as junior Guillermo Delgado collected first-team honors while classmate Thomas de Villardi earned third-team accolades.

Delgado has now garnered first-team all-region honors in each of his three seasons in a Blue Hen uniform. A two-time All-American and one of the program’s three captains, the forward completed his junior campaign with a team-best 24 points and 10 goals.

De Villardi, in his first season as a Blue Hen after transferring from Duquesne, finished the year 19th in the nation with 0.47 assists per game and 21st overall with nine total assists. His nine assists were good to tie for second in Delaware single-season history alongside Bob Young (1985).
