Satrustegui Crowned All-American by Second Organization with United Soccer Coaches Third Team Nod


KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Senior Alex Satrustegui (Pamplona, Spain) of the Southern New Hampshire University men's soccer team garnered his second All-American honor Wednesday, as the United Soccer Coaches voted him an All-America Third Team selection.

Satrustegui, who was honored earlier in the day when he was chosen as a Division II Conference Commissioners Association (D2CCA) All-America Second Team pick, becomes the first Penmen to earn United Soccer Coaches All-America status since Rayane Boukemia in 2016. Satrustegui has also received D2CCA East All-Region First Team, United Soccer Coaches All-East Region First Team, Northeast-10 Player of the Year and NE10 All-Conference First Team accolades this season.

Satrustegui put together an incredible 2018 campaign with 19 goals and two assists for 40 points in just 14 matches. Despite missing five contests, Satrustegui led the league in goals and notched the most game-winning tallies (7), while ranking second in points. Nationally, the three-time NE10 Player of the Week ranked fifth in goals and 11th in points. 

Satrustegui scored in 11 of his first 12 matches, including six straight to begin the year, and registered six multi-goal performances. The Penmen were 9-1-1 this season when he found the back of the net, including 5-1-0 when he scored at least twice. 

Southern New Hampshire finished 13-4-2, including 8-3-2 in the league to capture the No. 3 seed for the NE10 Championship. After winning its first NE10 postseason contest since 2015 with a 3-0 blanking of in-state rival and sixth seed Franklin Pierce University, SNHU was narrowly edged by second-seeded Adelphi University, 1-0, despite controlling much of the semifinal match.
