ALEX SALA -- Men's Soccer
Nov. 16, 2011
Alex Sala is a junior midfielder on the Point Park University men's soccer team, and he is the Featured Athlete for the week of Nov. 16, 2011. Sala is a native of Weiler, Austria, and he has been an all-conference player for the Pioneers the last two years.
Sala had seven goals, three assists and 17 points this season and was once again one of the top players in the American Mideast Conference. He was third on the team in goals and points and is a key component of Point Park's high-scoring offense.
He had five big points in a 3-2 win over Daemen in the first round of the AMC Tournament. That performance helped Point Park reach the AMC Finals for the first time in school history and tie a school record for wins in a season.
When the all-conference awards come out in the near future, Sala figures to get a lot of attention in that area, much like the attention that opposing defense use to account for the talented midfielder.
