Gustavus Adolphus College senior men’s soccer player Trevor Brown (Madison, Wisc.) has been named to the ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America Men’s Soccer Team as released by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA). Brown is a College Division Second Team selection.
Brown posted a 13-2-1 record this season, while recording 12 shutouts. He ranks sixth among NCAA Division III goalkeepers in goals against average (0.415) and ninth in save percentage (0.879). The Madison, Wis. native did not allow a goal in seven conference games this season, and becomes only the third goalkeeper in MIAC history to accomplish this feat. Brown, a three-year letterwinner, was a part of four conference championship teams and four NCAA Tournament teams. He is the first men’s soccer player in Gustavus history to be named to the CoSIDA Academic All-America Team.
The Gusties finished the year with a record of 16-4-0 overall and 9-1-0 in the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. Gustavus shared the regular season title with Carleton, and then won the MIAC Post-Season Tournament and earned an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament. The Gusties lost to Whitworth University 2-1 in overtime in the first round of this year’s national tournament. It was the fourth MIAC Playoff Title in past five years for Gustavus, and the fifth consecutive year that the squad has been selected to participate in the NCAA Tournament.
Brown is the son of Brad Brown and Maribeth Gettinger of Madison, Wisc. and a 2004 graduate of James Madison Memorial High School.
