Ryan Velte Named NEAC Defensive Player of the Week

GANSEVOORT, N.Y. — The North Eastern Athletic Conference has named sophomore Ryan Velte as this week's Men's Soccer Defensive Player of the Week.

Velte helped lead Keuka College to a pair of conference wins this past week. He opened the week in goal for the Wolves in a 4-0 shutout of Wells College. He made one stop against the Express to earn his first collegiate shutout. Velte then posted a six save performance as Keuka College defeated SUNY Cobleskill 3-2 over the weekend.

After seeing less than a half of action as a freshman, Velte has taken the reigns in goal for Keuka College as a sophomore. He has a 1.53 goals against average this season while posting 36 total saves. He is third in the NEAC with a .738 save percentage this season.

The Men's Soccer team will return to action this Wednesday as they host SUNY Poly at 6pm at the Jephson Community Athletic Complex.
