The Middlebury College soccer team recently welcomed its newest teammate when it drafted Dmitri Duval, a Crown Point, New York native, through Team IMPACT (Inspire, Motivate, Play Against Challenges, Together) in a ceremony at the College. On Tuesday, January 29, Dmitri was on campus for a “signing day,” where he became an official member of the Middlebury College soccer team.
Middlebury College men’s soccer player Jack Freeman (Ridgewood, N.J.) has earned second-team All-NESCAC honors. The senior captain recently finished his two-year career at Middlebury after transferring in the summer of ’11. Freeman played in all 30 games during his junior and senior seasons as a Panther, earning a pair of goals as a defender.
Middlebury saw its season come to an end with a 4-0 loss to second-ranked Amherst in the NESCAC Quarterfinals. The seventh-seeded Panthers finish their season with a 6-7-1 mark. Eight different Jeffs factored into the scoring in the contest played on Hitchcock Field.
The race for the top seed in the 2012 NESCAC Men’s Soccer Championship came down to the final day of the regular season, with Williams edging out Amherst by virtue of a coin flip to secure home field advantage throughout the tournament.
The Middlebury men's soccer team dropped its final game of the regular season, falling 3-1 at ninth-ranked Williams (12-0-2, 8-0-2). The Panthers (6-6-1, 3-6-1) have earned a spot in the upcoming NESCAC Tournament and will play a quarterfinal game on the road Saturday.
