Goalie Zach Carr Named First-Team Academic All-District

11/2/2010

Hoboken, NJ – Senior goalkeeper Zach Carr (Carmel, Ind.) of the Stevens Institute of Technology men’s soccer team was named first-team CoSIDA/ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District on Tuesday morning. Carr is one of the top goalkeepers in NCAA Division III and currently holds a cumulative grade-point average 3.92 as a Biomedical Engineering major.

As a first-team Academic All-District selection, Carr now has the ability to be named to the national CoSIDA/ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America team which is announced on Tuesday, November 16.

In 2010, he has been one of the top goalkeepers in the country. In the latest NCAA statistical release, Carr leads the nation in shutouts and goals-against average, and is second in save percentage as the Ducks are ranked 17th in the National Soccer Coaches Association of America poll and No. 8 in the D3Soccer.com poll.

Carr already leads the program in wins (64), shutouts (52), and goals against average. He has started 82 games, made 248 saves, and allowed a miniscule 33 goals over his three-plus years in Hoboken. He has helped lead a nationally ranked defense each of the last three seasons, and was a first-team NSCAA All-American and Academic All-American in 2009 – the only player in the entire nation to achieve that honor. The Carmel, Ind. native is a three-time all-conference performer as well.

Stevens finished the regular season with an overall record of 12-1-3 and was 6-0-1 in the Empire 8. The Ducks will host one semifinal in the conference tournament on Friday evening at 5 p.m. versus Utica College. For those unable to make the trip, all the action will be webcast live from the De Baun Athletic Complex at www.PennAtlantic.com.
