2013 NSCAA Continental Tire NCAA Division I Men's All-Far West Region Teams

KANSAS CITY, Kan. - Redshirt junior defender Craig Nitti was named to the 2013 National Soccer Coaches Association of America/Continental Tire NCAA Division I Men's All-Far West Region Second Team, announced Tuesday.

The NSCAA All-Region honor is the 17th all-time for the LMU men's soccer team and first since both Rafael Baca and Roger Downes were honored in 2010.

Nitti was key to the Lions' defensive success this past fall as a co-captain and center back defender. Starting all 16 games he appeared in for 1,531 total minutes, he helped the Lions to seven shutouts an 0.85 goals against average, a 13-4-3 overall record and a seventh all-time NCAA Tournament appearance.

The 6-5 Calabasas, Calif., native was also key on set pieces up top, scoring two goals, including a game-winner, and adding one assist for five points. Leading the Lions to a 9-2-1, first-place finish in the West Coast Conference, Nitti also earned first team All-WCC honors.
