The Bearcats went 9-7-1 overall – their best season in 10 years — tying for fourth place in the American Athletic Conference. The American sent two teams to the 2016 NCAA Tournament including USF, whose only conference loss came on Oct. 1 against the Bearcats.
UC had 13 newcomers on the team this past season including 11 true freshmen.
Four players earned all-conference honors, Adam Wilson (Midfielder of the Year, 1st team), Patrick Nielsen (2nd team, all-rookie team), Ryan Melink (all-rookie team), David Sanz (all-rookie team).
In addition, five UC student-athletes were recognized as All-Ohio with Wilson and Nielsen earning first and second team honors, respectively. Pedro Diaz, Christian Hay and Jack Clark were each tabbed for the academic first team.
