Two Hokies Named to All-State Team
Enmark and Silva awarded second-team honors
December 7, 2001 Ty Enmark (Sterling Heights, Mich.) and Fred Silva (Sao Paulo, Brazil), both redshirt seniors on the Virginia Tech men's soccer team, have been named to the second team of the 2001 All-Virginia Division I Soccer Team as voted on by the Virginia Sports Information Directors (VaSID). Enmark and Silva combined this year to pack a major offensive punch for the Hokies. Silva was the team leader in points scored (32), goals (10) and assists (12). Enmark was third on the team in points scored (13) and was second in assists with three. Enmark was Tech's steadiest performer against BIG EAST competition in 2001. He was tops on the team in goals scored against conference opponents (5) and was tied for the most assists with two. His two-goal performance against conference foe Pittsburgh helped lead the Hokies to a very important 2-2 tie which helped propel them to a spot in the BIG EAST tournament in their inaugural year in the conference. Silva's most impressive performance of the year came in the Tech's 8-0 victory over Elon. In the game, he broke two school records. His nine total points (2 goals/5 assists) broke the old school mark of eight points in a match held by Jason Entlich. His five assists in the match shattered the old record of three. He was named BIG EAST Player of the Week for his performance. Silva also holds the school record for most assists in a single season (13), which he set in 1999, and the career assist mark (32). His goal against defending national champion Connecticut in the opening round of the conference tournament helped push the game into overtime.
