WILMINGTON, North Carolina – UNCW redshirt junior forward Julio Moncada has been named as a Second-Team selection on the National Soccer Coaches Association of America All-Midwest Region Men’s Soccer Team.
 
“This is an outstanding achievement,” Head Coach Aidan Heaney said. “A year ago, Julio spent three weeks in a hospital with an illness, lost 20 pounds and missed the entire season. To recover the way he has and score eight goals for us this season is a testament to his determination and desire to succeed. An incredibly hard worker and dedicated student-athlete, Julio would be the first to tell you he shares this award with his teammates, who contributed greatly to this honor.” 
 
A First-Team All-Colonial Athletic Association and NCCSIA All-State selection, Moncada was the Seahawks’ leading scorer with eight goals and three assists. He also fashioned a CAA-leading six game-winning goals, equaling the UNCW single-season record. 
 
The Puerto Cortes, Honduras, native was a two-time CAA Player-of-the-Week pick and earned National Team-of-the-Week recognition from Top Drawer Soccer twice.
