Kenyon senior men's soccer player Henry Myers (Lebanon, OH/Archbishops Moeller) was named to the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Academic All-America team on Tuesday, December 5th. A second-team selection, Myers became just the fourth player in program history to earn Academic All-America recognition.
To be considered, a student-athlete had to be of at least sophomore standing, possess legitimate athletic credentials and own a grade point average of at least 3.30. Furthermore, the student-athlete had to be named to the first team in Academic All-District selections two weeks ago.
Myers, a mathematics and economics major, patrolled the midfield in 2017 and helped the team notch a 16-3-3 record, a perfect 9-0 mark in the NCAC along with a conference regular-season title. Additionally, the Lords qualified for their fifth-straight berth into the NCAA Tournament and won their first-round match.
The NCAC's Offensive Player of the Year scored 13 goals, added four assists and totaled 30 points. His goal and point total led all players in the league. Myers also helped the Kenyon defense hold opponents to just 0.59 goals per game and post 12 shutouts.
Over his career, Myers helped the team amass 73 wins, a trio of NCAC Tournament titles, advancement to a pair of NCAA Tournament quarterfinal appearances and a 7-4-2 record in NCAA postseason competition. He was also a two-time, first-team All-NCAC selection and became just the second player in conference history to win Defensive and Offensive Player of the Year honors.
