Oct. 31, 2014

CENTER VALLEY, Pa.– Five student-athletes from four Patriot League schools were named to the Capital One Academic All-District Men’s Soccer First Team on Thursday.

Selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) the team recognizes the nation’s top student-athletes for their combined performance in competition and in the classroom.

Boston University placed two student-athletes on the District 1 First Team, which comprises NCAA Division I institutions in the Northeast. Senior goalkeeper Nicholas Thomson and midfielder Jordan Barker, a graduate student, are the Terriers representatives. Thomson, a native of Cramlington, England, has started every game in net as Boston University has posted an 11-3-2 overall record and is in first place in the Patriot League with a 6-0-1 mark. Thompson has a .72 goals against average in nearly 1500 minutes of play and a 3.87 grad point average as a health science major. Barker, an energy & environmental analysis graduate student from Harrogate, England, holds down a 3.65 GPA and is tied for second on the team with 10 points (three goals, four assists) in 16 starts.

In District 2, which is made up of Division I institutions in the Mid-Atlantic region, student-athletes from American, Bucknell and Loyola Maryland were recognized on the 12-player first team. Defenders Jake Weinreb, of American, and Joseph Cahalan, of Loyola, were selected along with Bucknell forward Jesse Klug. Weinreb, a senior from New Brunswick, N.J., has started all 15 games for the Eagles this season and was the Tournament MVP in the Lobo Invitational after American knocked off top-ranked UCLA. A Math/Economics major, Weinreb boasts a 3.86 GPA. Cahalan, a senior from Reisterstown, Md., is tied for the team lead with three goals this season — including two game-winners. A Finance major, Cahalan has a 3.83 GPA. Klug has scored 20 career goals for the Bison and is current third in scoring among Patriot League players with 20 points (eight goals, four assists). A junior managing for sustainability major from Sammamish, Wash., Klug has a 3.65 GPA.

The Academic All-District teams include the student-athletes who are divided into eight geographic districts across the United States and Canada. The University Division team includes NCAA Division I participants, while the College Division team combines NCAA Division II, NCAA Division III, NAIA, Canadian and two-year schools.
