HIGH POINT, N.C. --- Lees-McRae College
defender Luke Duffy (Wakefield, U.K.) was named to the 2010
Conference Carolinas Men's Soccer Academic All-Conference Team for
the first time in his career, announced league officials
Duffy has enjoyed a tremendous season for the Bobcats, providing
an experienced and calming presence on an LMC back line which has
allowed one goal or less on 11 occasions this season, including
three shutouts. The 5-10, 155-pound junior has been an integral
part of the Bobcats' success since he arrived on the LMC campus in
the fall of 2008, leading the Bobcats to two straight conference
titles in that span.
A 2009 Daktronics NCAA Division II All-America Third Team
selection, Duffy has paced the Bobcat backline to 23 shutouts in
his three seasons with the program, while also leading Lees-McRae
to the NCAA Tournament in each of the last two years.
Lees-McRae returns to the pitch on Saturday when the Bobcats
host Coker College to wrap up their conference and regular season
schedule. The match is slated to kick off at 6 p.m. following the
conclusion of LMC's Senior Day festivities.
