SPARTANBURG, S.C. - USC Upstate senior goalkeeper Pat Regna has spent every possible minute between the pipes in 2009 for the Spartans. The Rochester, N.Y. native has recorded 45 saves this season and has a GAA of 1.16.
He set a career high with 12 saves at Presbyterian on Sept. 26. Thanks to that career high in the 2-1 double overtime victory at Presbyterian and seven saves in a 3-1 victory over Georgia Southern on Sept. 23, Regna was named Atlantic Sun Defender of the Week.
Regna and the rest of his Spartans teammates recorded the first shutout in D-I history on Sunday afternoon. Upstate battled ETSU to a 0-0 draw in Johnson City, Tenn.
In the 2008 season, Regna started in 11 games, recording a team high 64 saves. His season high for saves in 2008 came at Winthrop when he recorded nine saves.
Prior to arriving at Upstate, Regna was the keeper at Monroe CC. He led MCC to a 13-3-2 record and a Region III Championship in his sophomore season and he earned First Team NJCAA All-American honors.
Regna recently talked with Alex Edwards of upstatespartans.com to talk about expectations for the remainder of the season and the first shutout in D-I history.
