HAVERFORD, Pa. – Nick Jannelli repeated his honor as Centennial Conference Player of the Year, an award announced by conference officials this week. Jannelli becomes just the second player in CC history to win the award multiple times. Former F&M standout Brandon Corday (2006-07) is the only other CC player to earn that prestigious distinction as a two-time Player of the Year. Noah Schwab was also honored for the Fords in the announcement as an honorable mention All-Centennial Conference performer while Mac Lyle was named to the all-sportsmanship team.
Jannelli led the Centennial Conference with 30 points through the regular season as he scored 11 goals and assisted on eight others. It marked the second straight season in which Jannelli led the conference in points. With his most recent honor, Jannelli is now a four-time All-Centennial Conference selection, earning first-team All-CC accolades the past three seasons after garnering second-team status during his rookie of the year campaign in 2016. Jannelli is just the third player in program history to earn first-team status during three different seasons, joining Frank Adamson '98 (all four years) and Rich Billings '00 (1996, 98, 99). Only 21 players in the history of the conference have accomplished that feat.
A co-captain on the team, Jannelli's senior year was headlined by multi-goal outings against Cabrini, Hampden-Sydney, and Muhlenberg, scoring the game-winning goal during those last two contests. Jannelli scored a goal in seven different matches and Haverford was 4-2-1 in those matches. Over his four seasons, the Fords were 38-5-1 when Jannelli found the back of the net. Jannelli earned Centennial Conference Offensive Player of the Week honors for the fifth time in his career this fall after helping Haverford get into the Centennial Conference playoffs during the final week of the regular season.
Noah Schwab was named an All-Centennial Conference performer for the first time in his career. Starting in the midfield during 16 of his 17 appearances, Schwab helped out on both ends of the field as an intimidating presence in the middle. He started his season with the game-winning goal against Cabrini and later scored in the victory over Swarthmore which vaulted Haverford into the Centennial Conference playoffs. Schwab also set up Jannelli's game-winning goal in overtime during the Fords' come-from-behind win on the road at Muhlenberg.
Men's soccer went 9-6-3 overall, including a 5-3-1 record in Centennial Conference matches this fall. The Fords earned the No. 4 seed in the Centennial Conference Tournament as they hosted a home playoff game on Walton Field for the seventh consecutive season. Although Haverford finished its season inside the NCAA Mid-Atlantic Region rankings, the Fords finished just out of the field that was selected for the NCAA Tournament.
