The Eastern Connecticut State University Warriors named 25 students to the 2017-18 men's soccer team.

Among the athletes is Maxime Parent '20 of South Yarmouth. Parent's major is Biology and his position on the team is forward.

"Max is a strong and athletic attacking player with a solid work ethic," said Head Coach Greg Devito. "He saw good minutes as a first-year player and gives us depth at the forward position."

Currently the men's soccer team has an overall record of four wins and four losses, with their next contest happening on Sept. 26 against the Salem State Vikings.

By placing its highest priority on the overall quality of the liberal arts educational experience, Eastern's Department of Intercollegiate Athletics, Intramurals and Recreation seeks to integrate its programs and goals with academic and developmental objectives, and to assure the assimilation of student athletes into the general student body.

Eastern Connecticut State University is the state of Connecticut's public liberal arts university, serving more than 5,400 students annually at its Willimantic campus and satellite locations. In addition to attracting students from 163 of Connecticut's 169 towns, Eastern also draws students from 20 other states and 29 other countries. A residential campus offering 39 majors and 65 minors, Eastern offers students a strong liberal art foundation grounded in an array of applied learning opportunities. Eastern has been awarded "Green Campus" status by the Princeton Review seven years in a row. For more information, visit welcomes thoughtful comments and the varied opinions of our readers.
