Men’s soccer midfielder Woody Redpath ’10 (second-team; top right in photo) and goalkeeper Adam Purdy ’13 (third-team; top left in photo), both of whom were named first-team all-NESCAC in November, have been named National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) All-Americans, making them the second and third Wes footballers (if you will) in the last four years to be so honored. (Purdy was the only freshman to be named an All-American.) Redpath and Purdy also received first-team NSCAA All-New England West Region honors, as did fellow midfielder Nick Whipple ’10 (bottom left in photo). Also, two-time NESCAC Coach of the Year Geoff Wheeler (bottom right in photo) was named NSCAA New England West Coach of the Year.
This is the latest in a long line of honors for the Cardinals, who had six players named all-NESCAC: Redpath, Purdy, Whipple (first-team), forward Asante Brooks ’10 (second-team), forward Keisuke Yamashita ’10 (second-team), and defender Jacob Mergendoller ’11 (second-team), with Purdy becoming the first freshman ever to be named first-team all-NESCAC. Also, defender Jory Kahan ’10 was named a CoSIDA/ESPN the Magazine Second-Team Academic All-American, the only NESCAC men’s soccer player to be named an Academic All-American. Oh yeah, and then there’s the whole 12-2-5 record, NESCAC regular-season title, team-record 12 shutouts, and NCAA Sweet 16 appearance.
Keep it up, lads!
