Three Eagles Named to All-GLIAC Teams
ASHLAND, Ohio – The Ashland University men's soccer team had three players selected to the All-GLIAC teams, which were announced by the league office Monday (Nov. 7).
Senior midfielder Kenny Hewitt (London, England/Longhill) and junior sweeper Jamie Dollar (Perrysburg, Ohio) were named to the All-GLIAC first team and senior striker Andrew Iden (Marysville, Ohio) was picked to the conference's second team.
It is Hewitt's second straight selection to the All-GLIAC first team and he also was named to the Daktronics All-Midwest Region second team last season. This year, he led the GLIAC with seven assists and also had a team-high six goals. The 5-foot-9 co-captain ranks second on AU's all-time assists list with 25 in his career and is tied for fourth on the all-time points list (57). Also, his six goals and 19 points were career highs. Hewitt recorded three assists in a 3-1 win over Findlay on Sept. 11, and in early October, scored a goal in three consecutive games. He finished his career with a two-goal performance in a 4-1 win over the Oilers on Oct. 30.
This is also Dollar's second consecutive selection to the All-GLIAC first team. Last year he was also picked to the Daktronics All-Midwest Region second team. Dollar was second on the team in goals (four), despite his position as the AU sweeper on the back line. He scored the Eagles' first two goals of the season, including the game-winner in a 1-0 win over Slippery Rock in the opener. Dollar scored both of AU's goals in a 2-1 win over Ohio Dominican on Oct. 20.
Iden was named to the All-GLIAC second team for the second time in his career. This year, the senior co-captain registered three goals and an assist to finish with 13 goals and four helpers in his career. He scored Ashland's lone goal in a 2-1 defeat at Ohio Dominican on Sept. 16. On Oct. 23, Iden scored in a 3-2 overtime win over Urbana and then added a goal and an assist in AU's 4-1 triumph at Findlay in his final career game.
Iden and Hewitt were members of three straight GLIAC regular season championship teams, which also advanced to the NCAA Tournament all three seasons. The Eagles finished the 2011 campaign with a 6-9-3 record.
