ST. LOUIS – Saint Louis University placed three student-athletes on the 2018 United Soccer Coaches NCAA Division I Men's All-Southeast Region team.
Junior midfielder Devin Boyce and senior defender Lennart Hein were both named second-team All-Region. Freshman forward John Klein was named third-team All-Region.
It is the first time since 2014 that the Billikens have had multiple players draw All-Region honors.
Boyce tied for third on the Billikens with 12 points (4G, 4A) and was a playmaker from the midfield position. A transfer from New Mexico in his first season with the Bills, Boyce tallied game-winning goals against nationally-ranked Tulsa, St. Bonaventure and George Washington. He earned first-team All-Atlantic 10 Conference honors earlier this year as well.
Hein, a two-time first-team All-Conference honoree, played every game on the Billikens' back line and also contributed two assists. Earlier this year, the International Business major was selected as one of 30 candidates in NCAA soccer for the prestigious Senior CLASS Award, which goes to student-athletes who combine athletic and academic prowess.
Klein led the Billikens in scoring in 2018 with nine goals, the most scored by a Billiken in a season since Robert Kristo's 14 goals in 2014. Additionally, Klein's nine tallies are the most by a SLU freshman since Vedad Ibisevic scored 18 times in the 2003 season. He was tabbed the A-10's Rookie of the Year.
Saint Louis finished 6-4-7 overall and 3-1-4 in the A-10 under first-year head coach Kevin Kalish. The Billikens now set their sights toward the upcoming spring exhibition season.
