Son, who was named to the first team All-CCAC, provided an offensive presence as well. The 24-year-old scored a goal and dished out a pair of assists as a senior. The Saints made it to the semifinals of the CCAC tournament before falling to one of the nation’s top-20 teams at Toyota Park.

The latter came off a free kick from 20 yards out less than two minutes into extra time, propelling Holy Cross to the conference semifinals.
Son finished his collegiate career with six goals, six assists, and 18 points.
