KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Wheaton College men's soccer senior captain Curran Wait was named to the United Soccer Coaches NCAA Division III All-New England Region Third-Team. 

Wait, who ended the season with a New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) First-Team All-Conference nod, played in and started all 20 of the Lyons matches, finishing an astounding 6-for-6 from the penalty circle, which ranked him first in the NEWMAC. The senior midfielder also ended the season ranked third in the NEWMAC in goals (7) and fourth in points (16), which were both team bests. Wait's seven goals and 16 points are season bests for the captain, who ended his career with 15 goals and 39 points. The all-conference nod was the second of Wait's career, with the midfielder earning a spot on the second-team following the 2017 season. The all-region honor is the first of Wait's career. 

Wheaton ended the season with a 9-10-1 overall record and 3-4 NEWMAC standing, making the NEWMAC Tournament for the first time under new head coach Bryan Waggoner.
