Joliet, Ill. - As the Saint Xavier University men's soccer team prepares for today's NAIA Region VII semifinals game against No. 2 seed Judson University (Ill.), the team learned it had four players named to the 2007 All-Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference (CCAC) Men's Soccer Team early Monday morning. Senior forward Alex Duncan (Orland Park, Ill./Moraine Valley CC) and junior midfielder Agustin Herrera (Chicago Heights, Ill./Bloom) both received first team honors, while senior midfielder Matt Prunckle (Chicago, Ill./Brother Rice) and senior defender Edin Abdagic (Cazin, Bosnia/Herzegovina) garnered All-CCAC honorable mention recognition.
Duncan is SXU's points leader this season with a team-best tying seven goals and three assists for 17 total points. It is the first time in his two-year career at Saint Xavier that Duncan has earned all-conference recognition.

Herrera has three goals and five assists over 18 games this season. Prunckle has played in all 21 games for the Cougars this year and has six goals and two assists at the midfielder position.
