Micah Rose Named to 2011 NSCAA/Continental Tires Men’s NCAA Division III All-America Team
KANSAS CITY, Kan. - Senior captain Micah Rose of the Swarthmore College men's soccer team has been named to the 2011 NSCAA/Continental Tires Men's NCAA Division III All-America Team, the organization announced on Thursday.
Rose makes the All-America third team for the second-consecutive season. Rose's honor marks the 95th All-American selection in the history of Swarthmore men's soccer. The senior also becomes the first men's soccer student-athlete at Swarthmore to repeat as an All-American since Christian Pedersen in 1947 and 1948.
Rose (Williston, Vt./Champlain Valley Union) finished a stellar Garnet career with a five goal, three assist senior season. A two-time team captain, Rose became the first member of the men's soccer program to be selected to the All-Centennial Conference first team three times in a career. Rose also excels in the classroom, earning Philadelphia Inquirer Academic All-Area honors in 2010 and 2011, Centennial Conference Academic Honor Roll honors in 2009,2010 and 2011 and Capital One Academic All-America honors in 2011. In a fitting ending to an illustrious career, Rose scored the game-winning goal in the ECAC South Championship match against Medaille, as his curving ball off a free kick in the 104th minute hit the far post and went into the back of the net. For his efforts, Rose was named the tournament MVP.
Rose is one of just two Centennial Conference players on the All-America team; he is joined by Dickinson defender Taylor Ferry.
Rose is a key member of a Garnet senior class that completed one of the most successful four-year runs in the history of Swarthmore soccer. Over four years, the 2011 seniors won two Centennial Conference Championships (2008, 2010), one ECAC South Region Championship (2011) and appeared in three NCAA Tournaments (2008, 2009, 2010).
