Crompton, Ziad, Hanlon Collect United Soccer Coaches All-New England Honors

KANSAS CITY, Mo.—Three members of the Babson College men's soccer program added to their postseason accolades on Monday when they received All-New England honors from the United Soccer Coaches.

Senior Alex Crompton (Killington, Vt.) was named to the second team, while classmate Youcef Ziad (Holbrook, Mass.) and sophomore Liam Hanlon (Boxborough, Mass.) both garnered third-team laurels.

Crompton, who earned New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) first-team all-conference honors back in November, was named to the all-region team for the first time after setting 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 on the program's all-time list.

A second-team all-conference selection, Ziad earned all-region honors for the first time in his career after scoring four goals and registering a career-high six assists for 14 points in 19 matches as a senior. He produced at least one point in six times during a 10-game stretch from October 8-November 9 that saw the Green and White go 9-1-0.

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.

A two-time All-NEWMAC selection, Hanlon earned the first All-New England award of his career after starting all 22 matches at center back. He scored three goals and finished the year with a career-high seven points while helping the Beavers record nine shutouts.

Babson, which captured a share of its second straight NEWMAC regular season title and won its first conference tournament crown since 2015, 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.
