After crashing out of the second round of the NCAA Tournament, Penn State found a reason to celebrate on Tuesday.
Four Nittany Lions found spots on the United Soccer Coaches All-North Region Team.
Nittany Lions' sophomore forward Peter Mangione was named as a first-team selection; while redshirt senior defender Brandon Hackenberg and senior midfielder Seth Kuhn were named to the second team; and junior midfielder Andrew Privett rounded it off making the third team.
