Figueiredo Named First-Team All-American

BRUNSWICK, Maine - Bowdoin College senior Nick Figueiredo (Wilmington, Mass.) has been named a First-Team All-American in selections announced by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America. Figueiredo, the New England Small College Athletic Conference's Player of the Year, is Bowdoin's fifth First-Team All-American.

Figueiredo finished his career as Bowdoin's all-time leader in points (88) and goals (35) became the first Polar Bear to earn NESCAC Player of the Year honors. A prolific scorer, Figueiredo paced the Polar Bears in scoring for the second-straight fall, recording 10 goals and 11 assists for a career-high 31 points. He led the conference in points and was second in goals scored. In addition, the Wilmington, Massachusetts native was able to break the program's 35-year old goal-scoring record and earn his third-straight First-Team All-NESCAC selection.

Figueiredo was also chosen as a First-Team All-New England selection, while classmate Brendan Egan was named to New England's Second-Team. Egan, a First-Team All-NESCAC choice, scored four goals this season to earn his second-straight First-Team nod.
