WATERVILLE, Maine – The North Atlantic Conference (NAC) has announced their All-Conference teams as senior Tevin Reid (Dorchester, Mass.) has been named to the All-NAC First Team, senior Nawfal El-Antri (Dorchester, Mass.) and junior Adam LaBrie (Yarmouth, Maine) to the All-NAC Second Team, and sophomore Jack Gallagher (Camden, Maine) to the Sportsmanship Team.

Reid followed up his strong junior season by making the First Team after earning Second Team honors a year ago.  The senior was one of three Terriers who started in all 18 games this season.  Reid scored four goals and chipped in with seven assists for 15 points, tying for second on the team.  His team-high seven assists placed him fourth overall in the conference.

After leading the NAC in goals last season, LaBrie finished his junior year with 17 games played, a team-high nine goals, two assists, and a team-high 20 points.  For his career, the junior forward has 37 goals and eight assists for a total of 82 points.

El-Antri stepped into a key role for his senior season to control the Terriers' midfield.  The senior recorded four goals and five assists throughout the year for 13 points, placing him fourth on the team.  

Gallagher played in 16 games on defense for the Terriers this season, recording four goals along with an assist.  The NAC Men's Soccer Sportsmanship Team is reserved for those who have distinguished themselves through demonstrated acts of sportsmanship and ethical behavior. The honorees are individuals who have positively affected the soccer culture and environment and whose behavior clearly demonstrates sportsmanship and integrity that go beyond the playing rules and etiquette.

The Terriers finished the season 8-9-1 (6-2-1) overall under Head Coach Chris Parsons.  The team fell in the NAC Quarterfinals on Sunday to Maine Maritime, 2-1, failing to make the championship round for the first time since 2011.
