PRESQUE ISLE, ME (11-4-11) -- UMPI midfielder Craig Maffei (Sr./Readfield, ME) has been named an "Honorable Mention" to the USCAA All-American team in an announcement released by the organization on Friday.
Maffei had a solid season for the Owls, leading the team in goals (6) and tying for the team lead in points (13). On September 5th, Maffei scored 2 goals leading UMPI to a 5-2 win at Unity College.

The United States Collegiate Athletic Association was formed in 2001 as a reorganization of the National Small College Athletic Association with a clearer vision of providing an association to hold national championships, name All-Americans and scholar-athletes, and to promote USCAA member schools. It currently has 82 members in 24 states, stretching across the nation, from Maine to Washington state.
