Andre Baires Named to HL Second Team & All-Freshman Team
GREEN BAY, Wis. (GreenBayPhoenix.com) – Freshman Andre Baires was recognized by the Horizon League for his outstanding play all season long, as the Phoenix defender was named to the All-Horizon League Second Team and All-Freshman Team.
Baires started 16 games this season and tied for the team lead with two goals on the season. The native of Winnipeg, Canada also finished the 2016 slate with a SOG% of .700, the best on the team.
One of the first glimpses of Baires ability came in Green Bay's home opener, where he scored the first Phoenix goal of the season against Fort Wayne and placed a pair of shots on-goal.
From there, Baires continued to prove that he was someone the team could rely upon in crucial situations, as he went on to score the game-winning goal against 2015 NCAA Tournament Participant Drake on Sept. 13 and helped lead the defense to a 1-0 shutout victory.
All told, Baires aided the Phoenix defense to four shutouts and played every single minute of the 16 games he started this season.
The complete list of those recognized by the Horizon League for their respective achievements in the 2016 season is compiled below.First Team All-League
