this week for a spot in the national semifinals.

There are 37 Academy products playing collegiate soccer, representing 18 Universities, incuding several in the national polls.

Matt Kassel – Maryland
Kassel has
been an integral part of the Terps’ success this season with a team-high 28
points this season. After coming off of a torn hip labrum at the end of last
season, Kassel has stepped up to a leadership
position for Maryland
as they continued their journey towards a second national title during his
tenure.  The Terps took down Penn State
on November 28, 1-0, to continue their run at this year’s title. They will face
Michigan on
December 4 at home.  Kassel started and played all 90 minutes, registering
two shots.  No. 2 seed Maryland
will face Michigan
in the NCAA Quarterfinals next Saturday (Dec. 3) at 1 p.m.

The Terps took down Penn
