Tommie Men's Soccer had three players among 36 voted onto the United Soccer Coaches All-North Region team for 2018.

Senior keeper Aidan Hogan and senior MF Will Kidd made first team, and defender Walter Alvarado was voted third 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.

Their final record of 16-4-2 included a 2-1-1 postseason record as they lost 1-0 to No. 13-ranked Luther to end their season. The Tommies allowed just one goal over their last seven contests.

 

Aidan Hogan

Hogan made honorable mention All-MIAC in 2016 and was first team all-conference in both 2017 and 2018.

The senior from Kohler, Wis., closed with 51 career wins and 30 career shutouts after another strong season in goal. That included a late-season streak of 676 minutes on the clock without a goal allowed. He played in 65 games on his career and contributed to a senior class with 70 victories over four seasons.

 

Will Kidd

In two seasons with the Tommies, the senior from St. Paul played in all 46 games and scored 14 goals with eight assists. The Toms went 15-0-1 in games on his career when he scored a point. He made All-MIAC this season.

 

Walter Alvarado

The senior defender-midfielder from Minneapolis played in all 46 games over the last two seasons and 63 on his three-year Tommie career. He chipped in one goal and four assists. He made All-MIAC this season.
