Bush & Nangle Earns Academic All-American Honors

October 30, 2008

Middlebury College men's soccer players Brian Bush (Madison, Wis.) and Colin Nangle (Westport, Conn.) have been named District I second-team Academic All-Americans by CoSIDA (College Sports Information Directors Association). The duo have helped lead the Panthers to a 10-1-2 record as New England's top-ranked team.

Bush is enjoying another solid year between the posts for the Panthers. He currently has a 0.37 GAA with seven shutouts this season and 21 in his career. Bush earned All-American, All-New England and All-NESCAC honors last season, and is a two-time All-NESCAC Academic selection. The senior is an economics major at Middlebury with a 3.58 GPA.

Nangle has aided Bush's impressive numbers as a starter for the Panthers in the back. He has helped lead the league's top defense this season, allowing just .37 goals/game with eight shutouts. Nangle is an All-NESCAC Academic selection, who has started nearly every game since arriving at Middlebury in the fall of '06. The junior currently has a 3.68 GPA at Middlebury, majoring in international politics and economics.
