POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. – Matt Viggiano, who recently completed his sixth season as the head coach of the Marist men’s soccer team, announced on Thursday the addition of five players to the Red Foxes’ incoming class of freshmen for the 2013 season. The members of this class hail from New York, New Jersey and Maryland and come from highly regarded high school and club programs. The five players are Dylan MacVane, Zachary Reed, Mark Sterling, Tucker Stern and Jae Wong.

“We’re excited to have this talented group of student-athletes join our program” said Viggiano. “These five players will be expected to augment our deep returning roster in the immediate future. We’re looking to see what their initial impact will be, as well as their eventual growth in our program. This is a solid group that will help ensure both bright short-term and long-term futures. ”

Dylan MacVane – Midfield/Back – Middlegrove, N.Y./Saratoga Springs – Real Salt Lake Academy

MacVane comes to Marist after a decorated youth career saw him go from Saratoga Springs to Utah as a member of the Real Salt Lake Residency Academy program. While in Salt Lake, MacVane was coached by former U.S. National Team player and MLS assistant Greg Vanney and then by current national team assistant Martin Vasquez. In his first year with RSL, he captained the U-16 academy team that finished third in the country at the U.S. Academy Nationals. MacVane’s success has allowed him to be chosen to the player pools of both the National Team and Super Y National Team.

Viggiano on MacVane: “Dylan is a talented player, who comes from a high-level program and has a great pedigree. We hope that his talents translate to an immediate impact for our squad.

Zachary Reed – Midfield – Teaneck, N.J./Paramus Catholic – Match Fit Academy

Reed joins the Red Foxes after most recently spending his senior scholastic year with the Match Fit Academy in the U.S. Soccer Development Academy League. Prior to joining the academy ranks full-time, Reed was a three-year starter at Paramus Catholic High School. Outside of his time with his high school team, he spent three years participating with the U-15 New York Red Bulls Pre-Academy team. A starter all three years with the Red Bulls, Reed garnered national attention as he called into three U.S. National Team training camps; once with U-14 and twice with U-15.

Viggiano on Reed: “He’s a really great kid, who comes from a great family. With a brother, who played at St. John’s, that’s a definite advantage for Zach in learning and transitioning into the college game. We look forward to seeing what he can do out on the flanks at midfield.

Mark Sterling – Goalkeeper – Salisbury, Md./The Salisbury School – Freestate Soccer Alliance Red Devils

Coming to the Red Foxes from Salisbury, Md., Sterling has seen his level of play grow throughout four years at The Salisbury School and with the Freestate Soccer Alliance club of the Atlantic Soccer League. After earning All-Conference Second Team honors as a sophomore, he elevated his play as a junior and senior as he was named to the All-Conference First Team. During his last two seasons at Salisbury, Sterling served as a team captain. As a member of the Bowie-based Freestate Soccer Alliance he played with the Red Devils squad.

Viggiano on Sterling: “Mark will add immediate depth to our goalkeeping corps. We look for him to push our current keepers with a keen eye on the future.”

Tucker Stern – Forward/Midfield – New Paltz, N.Y./New Paltz – Premier Hyde Park Lightning

Stern will make the short trip across the Mid-Hudson Bridge to begin his career as a Red Fox as he hails locally from New Paltz. A four-year starter for the Huguenots, Stern led the team to its first Section 9 title in program history as a captain. One of the top goal scorers in the Mid-Hudson Valley area, he spearheaded New Paltz’ offense with nine goals as a junior and 14 as a senior. A First Team Poughkeepsie Journal All-Star, he participated on the New York East ODP club team, as well as the Premier Hyde Park Lightning club over the past two years.

Viggiano on Stern: “Tucker has a great work ethic with a lot of potential. He will immediately add to the quality of our practices. He’s a diamond in the rough with a great future.”

Jae Wong - Midfield – Parsippany, N.J./Gill St. Bernard’s – Parsippany SC

Wong joins the Marist soccer program from the Gill St. Bernard’s School in Gladstone, N.J. A four-year varsity player, Wong played in three NJSIAA State Finals and brought home one state title. In his high school career, he scored 25 goals and assisted on 37 others on his way to earning All-Prep, All-Conference, All-Sectional and All-State accolades. Outside of playing for Gill St. Bernard’s, Wong also competed on the club level with the Parsippany SC Gators, who won the U-17 2012 North American Super-Y National Championship and US Club State Cup. A captain on the club, the Gators also represented the East Coast in the 2012 National Premier League U-18 Championship in Chicago, Ill. For his work both in and out of the classroom, Wong was recently named Gill St. Bernard’s Male Scholar Athlete of the Year.

Viggiano on Wong: “Jae is a skilled and tricky midfielder with great pace. He’s also an excellent student. If he develops physically, his game could really take off on the college level.”
