KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The University at Albany had four student-athletes named to the United Soccer Coaches Scholar All-East Region team, the organization announced Wednesday.  Among the selections were senior Afonso Pinheiro, and juniors Carlos Clark, Daniel Krutzen, and Nico Solabarrieta.

Pinheiro, a forward from São Paulo, Brazil, is the lone senior among UAlbany’s four representatives, and was named Scholar All-East for the second consecutive season.  He has accumulated a 3.34 GPA with a major in Globalization Studies and a minor in Spanish.  Pinheiro, who will graduate at the end of the fall semester, was named First Team All-Conference this season and will leave UAlbany as the program’s all-time Division I leader in goals and points.

Clark, a midfielder from Teaneck, N.J., earned a 3.72 GPA studying Business with a minor in Psychology.  Clark ranked fourth on the team with 12 points.  He was named Second Team All-Conference, was named to the America East All-Tournament team, and was most recently selected to the All-East Second Team.

Krutzen, a midfielder from Lanaken, Belgium, earned a 3.66 GPA studying Business with a minor in Economics.  Krutzen ranked third on the team in points this season, and his play garnered him numerous awards, including America East Tournament Most Outstanding Player, All-Conference First Team, and All-East First Team.  Most recently, Krutzen was named to the All-America Third Team by the United Soccer Coaches.

Solabarrieta, a forward from Santiago, Chile, earned a 3.42 GPA studying Business with a minor in Portuguese.  Solabarrieta led the team with 22 points and eight goals this season, and earned All-Conference Second Team and America East All-Tournament accolades.

Clark and Solabarrieta were two of the three players on the roster this season, along with redshirt-senior defender Jeff Medina, to start all 22 games.  The Great Danes’ four representatives on the Scholar All-East team were twice as many as any other institution, and two more selections than UAlbany had last season.
