Skelly and Heffron Named to Men's Soccer All-Ivy League Team
Heffron and Skelly were the only two members of the Big Green named to the first team, after the duo finished the season with superb numbers at their individual positions.
A defensive midfielder, Heffron was moved to the offensive side during the season and finished with three goals and four assists for 10 points. The Upper Brookville, N.Y., native added a career-high in goals and tied his assists total from a year ago. Heffron was named to the All-Ivy Second Team last year after he tallied two goals and had eight points. Heffron is one of three players on the squad to start more than 14 games this season. Of his three goals, two of them were game-winners.
The sole captain on this season's squad, Skelly was the only player to start all 17 games and was a big part of the defensive unit that allowed 1.11 goals against this season. Throughout his career, Skelly was a mainstay in the Dartmouth starting lineup, taking the pitch in 69 games with 67 starts. A member of the All-Ivy League Honorable Mention performer last year, Skelly was used primarily to defend the opposition's top striker. He has been invited to participate in the NEISL All-Star Game on Dec. 1 at Harvard. Skelly was also named to the NSCAA/Continental Tire All-Northeast Third Team.
The Big Green will look to rebuild next season after losing Skelly and five others to graduation.
