Mount St. Mary's puts T.C. DiBartolo and Matt Nealis on MAAC first team
Goalkeeper T.C. DiBartolo and defenseman Matt Nealis were named to the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference first team.
DiBartolo, a sophomore who graduated from Archbishop Spalding, finished the regular season as the MAAC leader in save percentage (.613) and saves per game (11.9). His goals-against average of 8.03 ranks first on the school’s all-time single-season mark, and he recorded a career-high 21 saves in contests against Virginia and Siena. DiBartolo is the first Mountaineers goalie to make the first team since Dave Lambour in 2003.
Nealis, a second-team selection last season, has started every game as the Mountaineers' top shutdown defenseman. Nealis is tied for the team lead in caused turnovers (14), and he has posted two goals and 12 ground balls. He is the first Mount St. Mary's defenseman to earn first-team honors since Pat Farrell in 2006.
