MLS: Western Conference Semifinal-Real Salt Lake at Sporting KC William Purnell-USA TODAY Sports

The college regular season has come to an end and the NCAA tournament kicks off this coming week. First though conference players of the year were named, and former Sporting Kansas City academy player, Joey Piatczyc was named Player of the Year for the Mid-America Conference. Piatczyc finished the regular season with seven goals and eight assists for the Mountaineers. Piatczyc wasn’t the only Sporting academy player to be on the All-MAC First Team as he was joined by goalkeeper Steven Tekesky.

The Mountaineers and their four Sporting academy players (Ryan Kellogg and Logan Lucas the other two) qualified for this year’s NCAA tournament along with seven other players who were in Sporting’s academy system. Here’s the rest of this week’s update.
