FAIRMONT — East Fairmont boys’ soccer had its best season in school history in 2012.

On Thursday, the Bees were rewarded for it in a big way, as the team won both Big 10 individual honors and placed six players on the league’s first or second teams.

East senior midfielder Jesse Roman was named Big 10 Player of the Year, and his father, Fred Roman, nabbed Coach of the Year honors after the Bees won their first regular-season conference championship.
