BABSON PARK, Mass.—Babson College seniors Alex Crompton (Killington, Vt.), Steven Heintzelman (Middleton, Mass.) and Youcef Ziad (Holbrook, Mass.) have been selected to take part in the New England Intercollegiate Soccer League (NEISL) Division III All-Star Game, which will be held at Brandeis University in Waltham, Mass., on Sunday at 1 p.m.
The Beavers' trio helped the program go unbeaten in league play for the second year in a row on the way to capturing New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) regular season and tournament championships this past fall. They also helped the Green and White return to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2016.
Crompton, who earned his first NEWMAC All-Conference honor earlier this month, set new career highs in goals (8), assists (8) and points (24) while starting 20 of 22 matches. He scored a league-high four game-winning goals, and produced seven goals and six assists over the final 13 games of the year.
Overall, Crompton ranks 19th in school history with 22 goals and his 58 career points are tied for 14th place all-time.
A two-time all-conference selection and a first-team pick this past fall, Heintzelman went 12-5-2 in 19 starts while posting a 1.05 goals against average and a .825 save percentage to go along with six clean sheets. He also made a career-high 94 saves and ranked either first or second among NEWMAC goalkeepers in every statistical category.
Heintzelman started 34 matches over his final two seasons at Babson and ranks fourth in program history in goals against average (0.81) and is tied for fifth in save percentage (.846) while recording 16 shutouts and an overall record of 22-8-6.
Ziad garnered the first all-conference honor of his career after being named to the second team in early November. He scored four goals and registered a career-high six assists for 14 points in 19 games as a senior.
A starter in 44 of 68 career matches, Ziad scored 18 goals and 14 assists for 50 points. His final two assists set up overtime goals to help Babson defeat Wheaton and WPI in the conference tournament.
The Beavers ended the season at 14-6-2 overall after suffering a 3-2 overtime loss at No. 10/7 SUNY Oneonta in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.
