For the second straight season, Kentucky senior goalkeeper Callum Irving earned a league-best three Conference USA men's soccer awards, while the Cats' Johan Cedergren earned Coach of the Year honors.
The awards, announced Tuesday, were selected by a vote of the league's nine head men's soccer coaches.
Irving was the first player to repeat as Conference USA's player of the year. He was also named the league's defensive MVP, becoming the first player to repeat as that award winner since UK All-American Barry Rice did so in 2007 and 2008.
He earned first-team All-C-USA honors for the third year in a row. He also repeated as recipient of the Golden Glove Award, given to the goalkeeper who posts the most shutouts in league play.
Never miss a local story.
Irving has a 0.57 goals-against average (eighth in the nation) and an .821 save percentage (20th) through 17 matches, and he has nine shutouts.
Cedergren, who led the Cats to their first C-USA regular-season title, shared the league's Coach of the Year award with Florida International's Scott Calabrese.
UK is 12-3-2 overall and was 7-0-1 in conference play.
Cedergren was the first person to repeat as Conference USA's coach of the year since Tulsa's Tom McIntosh in 2007 and 2008.
As regular-season champion, Kentucky earned the No. 1 seed for the C-USA Men's Soccer tournament and have a bye in the first round.
Kentucky was also represented on the all-conference first team by juniors Napo Matsoso and Jordan Wilson.
Matsoso started 15 games in midfield, leading the team with 14 points on four goals, three of which were game-winners, and six assists.
Wilson has anchored a Wildcat back line that boasts a shutout percentage of 0.59 (fifth in the nation) and a team goals-against average of 0.56 (sixth). The defender has also contributed on offense, scoring the game-winning goal against South Carolina and adding two assists on the season.
Both Matsoso and Wilson were also named to the first team last season.
Stefan Stojkovic, Kentucky's leading goal-scorer, earned second-team All-C-USA honors. Kristoffer Tollefsen repeated as a selection to the third team.
Tanner Hummel — who started 15 games as a freshman — and Xahne Reid were named to C-USA's all-freshman team.
