Pedrin was a second-team All- BEC defender as a junior. Grimm was an all-league midfielder as a sophomore.

Also earning all-conference recognition for the Tigers are junior goalkeeper Austin Bender on the second team and sophomore forward Will Rautmann, honorable mention. Rautmann was an All- BEC honorable-mention defender in 2015.

Pedrin scored six goals and had three assists in league play from his middle defensive position.

“Bryce was a team captain who really was a coach on the field. He had great field vision and was our top playmaker from the defensive side of the field,” said Tiger head coach Bob Peterson.

“He always played hard and did a great job of keeping the ball on our [offensive] side of the field.”

Grimm contributed eight goals and six assists in BEC action.

“Peter was a team captain who really was the catalyst for much of our offensive possessions. He was always was able to stay under control, see the field and make the right decision to create opportunities for our success,” Peterson pointed out.

“Austin is arguably one of the best keepers in our conference and this [All-BEC] award recognized that.

“He was able to make key saves against great pressure on many occasions. Without Austin back there we would’ve allowed at least 10 more goals this season.”

Bender made 64 saves in 14 conference matches.

Rautmann led the Tigers in goals with 18 for the overall season. In BEC play, he scored 14 goals and had five assists.

“Will was our most explosive scorer and our best ball handler. Will was deserving of a higher recognition in my opinion but great things are ahead for this sophomore,” said the coach.

Senior forward Derrick Ten- Dolle of Oostburg was voted the BEC’s Offensive Player of the Year. TenDolle, a unanimous firstteam pick, led the conference in goals for the overall season with an impressive 40.

Oostburg senior defender Chris TenPas was voted the league’s Defensive Player of the Year. TenPas is a unanimous first-team player.

TenPas is one of three players to be named to the first team for the second straight season. The others are senior midfielder Brandon Wishman of Sheboygan Christian/ Lutheran and junior defender Jonathan Gabrielse of Oostburg.

Oostburg and Christian/Lutheran have a league-high four firstteam players each. Oostburg won the BEC title with a 14-0 record and Christian/Lutheran was second at 12-2.
