Sandmann named PBC 1st-Team All-Conference

Francis Marion University junior forward Levin Sandmann was named to the Peach Belt Conference first-team All-Conference Team at the annual awards banquet in Evans, Ga., on Thursday evening (Nov. 2).

It is the second consecutive year Sandmann has garnered first-team accolades after earning second-team honors as a freshman.

Sandmann, a native of Heidelberg, Germany, led the Patriots in goals scored (10), match-winning scores (2), shots (45), and total points (24).  He also assisted on four other scores.

Within the conference, he ranks second in goals scored and points, fourth in game-winning goals, sixth in shots, and 10th in assists.

He started all 15 matches this season for the 6-9-0 Patriots and was on the field for all but 74 minutes of the team's 1,372 total, while 60.0 percent of his shots were on frame.

Sandmann has career totals of 50 matches played, 168 shots, 33 goals, 13 assists, and 79 points.  His goal total is the most by a Patriot in 17 seasons.

He was also named to the PBC All-Academic Team earlier this week.

Sandmann becomes the fifth Patriot men's soccer player to earn All-PBC honors three times, joining Mike Greenaway (2003-05), Dzevat Nikocaj (1998-2000), Juan Rivas (2007-09), and Josef Schroeder (1995-97).
