College soccer is coming to a close across the country and with over 100 SIMA alumni participating collegiately, we wanted to recognize those SIMA alumni who made it all the way through their senior year to compete in their last matches in NCAA and NAIA divisions.
The SIMA program will be watching as 12 SIMA alumni play in their final matches as a student-athlete at their respective institutions. There will be 10 matches played between October 30 and November 5 including two SIMA alumni matchups and one between seniors with two games slated for November 1 and four games for November 2.
Several student-athletes are likely to see post-season honors including Bruno Lapa (Wake Forest) Malick Mbaye (Clemson) and Nolan Lennon (Clemson). University of Clemson, Wake Forest University and St. Louis University are all likely to see runs in the post-season with strong winning records from regular season play.
