Three Men's Soccer Ivies Earn Capital One Academic All-America Honors
TOWSON, Md. -- Three men's soccer Ivies were selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) to Capital One Academic All-America teams, it was announced Thursday.
Yale junior Nick Alers was the lone Ivy League player on the first team, while Brown seniors Sam Kernan-Schloss and Dylan Remick were each selected to the third team.
Alers is the first Yale men's soccer player to earn first-team All-American status in the program's history and the first Ivy to receive first team accolades since Dartmouth's Andrew Olsen in 2010. Alers is an economics and political science major with a 3.98 G.P.A., has started all 41 games in which he has appeared in his three seasons at Yale. A native of San Juan, Costa Rica, he was a National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) All-Northeast Region third team selection last year. In 2011, he was also named first-team All-Ivy and was the recipient of the Walter J. McNerney Award as the team's most valuable player. In 2012, he earned honorable mention All-Ivy notice for the Bulldogs.
Kernan-Schloss is set to graduate with a degree in Community Health and Economics. The Arlington, Va. native has started 32 games for the Bears over the past two season, including 17 this season. In 2012 Kernan-Schloss went 13-3-3 with 10 shutouts and 57 saves while helping Brown to the second round of the NCAA Tournament, where it fell to No. 2 Maryland, 2-1. Kernan-Schloss earned Academic All-Ivy and CoSIDA Capitol One Academic All-District honors last season.
Remick, who holds a 3.71 GPA while majoring in Biology, is a three-time first-team All-Ivy recipient, including back-to-back seasons as a unanimous selection the past two seasons. In 2012, Remick earned All-Tournament Team honors at the Brown Soccer Classic and was the Tournament MVP at the Ocean State Classic for his outstanding defensive efforts. A starter in 15 of Brown's 16 games this season, Remick has led a back line that has allowed just 12 goals and shut out 10 opponents. On top of that, the senior set a personal-best with seven assists on the year.
