November 10, 2011
Four members of the Middlebury College men’s soccer team were honored when the NESCAC announced its all-league teams. Seniors Tyler Macnee (Williston, Vt.) and Robbie Redmond (Morristown, N.J.) earned spots on the first-team, while senior Otis Pitney (Washington, D.C.) and junior Jack Freeman (Ridgewood, N.J.) were second-team honorees. The group helped lead the Panthers to an 8-4-4 record, including a NESCAC Tournament first-round upset victory over Wesleyan.
Macnee earned first-team honors for the second-straight year, after holding down a second-team spot during his NESCAC rookie of the year season ’08. The senior finished second on the team in goals (5), assists (3) and points (13) in ’11. Macnee scored two goals in an October 4th win over Castleton State, following that up with a pair of helpers in an October 8th victory at Hamilton. He ends his career sixth all-time at Middlebury with 28 goals in 69 games, while adding 10 assists for 66 points.
Redmond earns first-team honors for the second time after holding down a spot on the second-team a year ago. The team’s top midfielder, Redmond earned a goal in a September 13th win at Norwich this season. He earned four assists in four different games, including both NESCAC Tournament games in ’11. Redmond ends his career at Middlebury with eight goals and eight assists for 24 points in 74 games.
Pitney earns second-team honors as another top midfielder for the Panthers. The senior played in all 16 games this season, ranking third on the team with eight points. Pitney scored a pair of goals in a September 25th win over Colby-Sawyer, while scoring again two games later against Connecticut College. Pitney finishes his career with 75 games played, scoring nine goals with three assists for 21 points.
In his first season as a Panther, Freeman was named to the all-conference team as a back. The junior helped lead a Middlebury defense that allowed 0.70 goals/game this year, including nine shutouts. Freeman scored a goal this season early on, finding the back of the net in a September 13th victory at Norwich.
