Six Toms gets All-MIAC recognition in Men's Soccer

MIAC news release

--

Tommie Men's Soccer had four players named to the 22-player All-MIAC first team for 2018.

Senior keeper Aidan Hogan and defender Walter Alvarado; senior MF Will Kidd; and freshman defender Jack Barry were honored on the first team.

Sophomore defender Sam Holton made the 16-player honorable mention list.

Senior Andrew Stuempfig was named to the Sportsmanship team. 

After sweeping the MIAC regular-season and conference titles in both 2016 and 2017, a younger St. Thomas team finished fourth of 11 teams this fall. St. Thomas played a tough schedule and won 14 regular-season games, and was thus rewarded with an NCAA tournament berth.

The Toms won 1-0 and 5-0 decisions to start the national playoffs, and are back in the NCAA Sweet 16 round for the third year in a row. Coach Jon Lowery's team takes a 10-game unbeaten streak (9-0-1) -- and a six-game shutout streak -- into Friday's 3:30 p.m. test against Luther College, to be played at the University of Chicago.

 

Aidan Hogan

Hogan made honorable mention All-MIAC in 2016 and was first team all-conference in 2017.

The senior from Kohler, Wis., has 51 career wins and 30 career shutouts after another strong season in goal. That includes a current streak of 622 minutes on the clock without a goal allowed. He's played in 64 games on his career and contributed to a senior class with 70 victories thus far over four seasons.

 

Will Kidd

In two seasons with the Tommies, the senior from St. Paul has played in all 45 games and scored 14 goals with eight assists. The Toms are 15-0-1 in games on his career when he scores a point.

 

Walter Alvarado

The senior defender-midfielder from Minneapolis has played in all 45 games over the last two seasons and 62 on his three-year Tommie career. He has chipped in one goal and four assists.

 

Jack Barry

The freshman from Naperville, Ill., has started all 21 games and scored seven goals and three assists.

 

Sam Holton

The sophomore defender from Mequon, Wis., has started 19 games and contributed one assist, and played in all 24 games in 2017.

 

Andrew Stuempfig

The senior from Plymouth has played in all 21 games and scored four goals and four assists this season.
