KANSAS CITY, Kan. - Six Ivy League men's soccer student-athletes were honored when the NSCAA announced its Scholar All-Region squads this week.
Dartmouth's Teo Larsson-Sax and Kevin Dzierzawski, Brown's Sam Kernan-Schloss and Cornell's Patrick Slogic each earned second-team Scholar All-East Region honors, while Yale's Peter Jacobson and Nick Alers were each awarded honorable mention.
Kernan-Schloss, a third-team Academic All-American selection by CoSIDA earlier this year, is set to graduate with a degree in Community Health and Economics. 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 in a heartbreaker to No. 2 Maryland, 2-1. Kernan-Schloss earned Academic All-Ivy and CoSIDA Capitol One Academic All-District honors last season.
An NSCAA All-Region selection earlier this month, Slogic made his second consecutive appearance on first team All-Ivy earlier in the postseason and earned second straight first-team all-region honor. An engineering major, Slogic anchored the back line and helped a defense that gave up just 13 goals all year, the second-lowest number in the Ivy League. A junior from Colorado Springs, Colo., Slogic also scored two goals and added an assist this season, and both of his goals were game-winners.
Dzierzawski, a sociology major from Oakland Township, Mich., posted a strong season in the midfield for the Big Green. Starting each of Dartmouth's 16 games, he picked up four points on four assists while taking five shots on goal. For the second consecutive season, he led the squad in assists and was tied for sixth among his Ivy League counterparts.
Larsson-Sax, a philosophy major from Kalmar, Sweden, made it difficult for opponents to score by helping lead the Dartmouth backline to two shutouts and only allowing opponents 1.36 goals per game. Larsson-Sax started each game during his senior campaign and took two shots on the year.
