VESTAL, N.Y. – Senior back Robbie Hughes has concluded his career at Binghamton with an appearance on the America East All-Tournament team. Junior midfielder Ben Nicholson, meanwhile, has been chosen to the conference’s All-Academic Squad.
Hughes was the team captain this season and was instrumental in the Bearcat defense recording six shutouts this season. In the quarterfinal round of the conference tournament last weekend, Hughes and the No. 6 Bearcats pushed No. 3 Hartford into overtime before losing a 1-0 decision.
Nicholson, meanwhile, led the Bearcats this season with five assists and 11 total points. In the classroom, he has a perfect 4.0 cumulative GPA. The only game he did not start this season was against Vermont on Oct. 5, when he was taking the LSAT exam.
