PLYMOUTH, N.H. - The National Soccer Coaches Association of America announced the All-New England Division III Women's and Men's Soccer teams three Plymouth State College players were chosen for their exceptional play.

On the men's side, senior captain Kevin Martin (Foxboro, MA) and sophomore Antoine Moiboueyi (Gabon, Africa) were named to the Second and Third Teams, respectively. For the women senior captain Tara Dickson (Sussex, NJ) was named to the Third Team.

A First Team All-New England and Second Team All-America selection in '98, Martin led the Panther squad to 29-10-2 record over the last two seasons. The quick-thinking midfield player netted 10 goals and dished out five assists in his senior campaign while leading the Panthers to their third straight post-season appearance.

Moiboueyi avoided a sophomore slump by scoring seven goals and dishing out one assist while mainly playing a defensive role. As a freshman Moiboueyi earned Little East Conference Rookie of the Year, and First Team All-LEC after scoring a remarkable 12 goals as a substitute.

A four-year starter for the Panthers, Dickson returns to the All-New England Team after being selected to the Third Team in her freshman season. Dickson, a senior co-captain, tallied nine goals and nine assists to lead the team in both categories. She finishes her college career with 24 goals and 19 assists that ranks her tied for sixth on PSC's all-time scoring list. The midfielder was selected to play in a senior all-star game to wrap-up her career.

The Plymouth State men finished the season with a 12-9 overall record under eighth year head coach Shawn Griffin, the women finished 12-6-1 under first-year head coach Rebecca Lisack.
