HERKIMER, N.Y. (WKTV) - Two-time national champion winning men's soccer goalie Triston Henry will be heading from Herkimer College to Connecticut this fall. The Toronto native will be a part of the Division I Huskies, taking over in net for Andre Blake, who was drafted this season by the Philadelphia Union of the MLS during his junior year.
In his two championship seasons with the Generals, Henry let up a total of nine goals, shutting out his opponents eleven times. He also saved 100 shots in his 34 games played.
On his upcoming move to Connecticut, Henry told NEWSChannel 2 Tuesday: "They have a lot of guys go to the MLS every year. Last year they went to the Elite 8. They play in the American Athletic Conference (AAC), they were nationally ranked the whole year. It's a big opportunity. It's a big jump coming out of Herkimer, same mentality, win national championships, so nothing changes about that."
Henry also spoke briefly about former teammate Pete McAvoy, who tragically passed away a few weeks ago. McAvoy was slated to play for another Division I program, Pittsburgh.
