Borja Angoitia – Men’s Soccer
Borja Angoitia completed one of the most historic campaigns in Quinnipiac men’s soccer history this past year. Almost more impressive though was Angoitia’s performance in the final month of competition. He posted three shutouts and a microscopic 0.56 goals against average over the team’s final six games. During the month, he had 30 saves and close to a .900 save percentage, which were tops in the MAAC. Due to his efforts between the posts, Quinnipiac claimed its first MAAC Championship in program history, and earned a first round NCAA Tournament clash with nationally-ranked No. 10, at the time, UConn in Storrs, Conn. In the MAAC Tournament, Angoitia made 11 saves and allowed just one goal, but really shined in both penalty shootouts. He scored on two penalty shots and saved two others, including the final shot from Monmouth to clinch the title.
