Middlebury College men’s soccer seniors Robbie Redmond (Morristown, N.J.) and Otis Pitney (Washington, D.C.) were both named to the NSCAA (National Soccer Coaches Association of America) New England second-team. The duo helped lead the Panthers to an 8-4-4 record in ‘11, including a NESCAC Tournament first-round upset victory over Wesleyan.

Redmond earned first-team NESCAC honors for the second time after holding down a spot on the second-team a year ago. He is also a three-time All-Regional selection. 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. He was also selected as a District I First-Team Academic All-American by CoSIDA (College Sports Information Directors of America).           

Pitney earns second-team NESCAC 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. He was also selected as a District I First-Team Academic All-American by CoSIDA (College Sports Information Directors of America).
