Nick Godzyk had some memorable moments on the soccer field this fall. And the Wilmington High School graduate made the fall semester count in the classroom as well.
Godzyk, a Keene State College sophomore and member of the Owls men's soccer team, was recently named to the Little East Conference's Fall All-Academic Team.
In total, 43 Keene State student-athletes in six fall championship sponsored sports were named, according to a press release from the school.
Earlier this season, Godzyk scored his first career goal in a memorable fashion.
In a September tilt against Springfield College, Godzyk ripped a shot into the back of the net 2:54 into the second overtime, giving his team a thrilling 2-1 victory.
"We didn’t start out strong, but it was good to finish,” Godzyk said after the game.
According to the press release on the Keene State website, to earn a spot on the squad, a student-athlete must have a cumulative grade point average of 3.3 or higher through the 2012 spring semester and be at least a sophomore academically and athletically. The student-athlete must also be a full-time member of a varsity sport and be enrolled in its institution for a full academic year.
Godzyk is a Physical Education major at Keene State. He was also a student-athlete in Wilmington, where he was a key contributor to the Wildcats basketball team.
