Of local note: All-Region honors for soccer, volleyball


Stanford men's soccer forward Amir Bashti, defender Tanner Beason and goalkeeper Andrew Thomas were named to the United Soccer Coaches NCAA Division I Men's All-Far West Region first team and midfielder Logan Panchot earned a spot on the third team as announced Wednesday. It's the first all-region selection for each. All-America teams will be announced later this week.

Also an All-Pac-12 first team pick, Bashti finished sixth in the league in scoring and fifth in points with a career-high seven goals and six assists. The senior twice earned Pac-12 Player of the Week awards following a brace against Delaware on Sept. 16 and a two-goal, two-assist weekend to begin conference action in late September against San Diego State and UCLA. Bashti played in 88 matches during his career, scored 19 goals and had 13 assists. Read the story here.
