WMU Men's Soccer

Western Michigan men’s soccer fell short of a MAC title and an NCAA tournament bid, but its performance was recognized with four players earning All-MAC selections.

Mike Melaragni and Daniel Nimick both earned first team All-Conference honors. Pepe Martinez-Betrand and Brennan Creek were named second team All-MAC.

Melaragni’s six goals led the Broncos and was good for second in the MAC. His four assists were one off the conference lead and his 16 total points were second in the conference while his 1.6 points per game were the most by any MAC player. Nimick chipped in with three goals and three assists on the year, both top-10 figures in the MAC and his nine points were good for sixth in the conference. Melaragni and Nimick both had two game-winning goals.

Martinez-Bertrand scored one goal and had two assists for the Broncos this season, and Creek had a goal and three assists. Creek’s lone goal was the game-winner in the season finale against Akron.

For Creek, it was his second All-MAC selection after being a first team pick last season. For Melaragni, Nimick and Martinez-Bertrand, this was their first time being on an All-MAC team.

The Broncos finished the season at 7-3-1, 5-3-1 in the MAC. It marked the ninth consecutive season that WMU has finished at or above .500.
