In honor of its silver anniversary, the University Athletic Association has announced its 25th Anniversary Men’s Soccer Team. Forty-nine student-athletes earned the honor, including eight or more players from four different teams.
The team consists of each student-athlete who was named Most Valuable Player or accumulated five or more points with two points awarded for All-Association first-team recognition, and one point for second-team honors in his career.
Among those honored are repeat Most Valuable Player honorees Nate Micklos of the University of Rochester (2004-05), Patrick Carver of Emory University (2007-08), Ricki Griffin of Carnegie Mellon University (2008-09), Vinny Bell of Case Western Reserve University (2010-11), and the only three-time MVP, Adam Hibshman of the Tartans (2000-02).
Emory has won six UAA Championships during the history of conference competition, claiming its most recent league title during the 2008 campaign, Carver’s final year.
