Middlebury's rookie goalkeeper Ryan Grady (Deerfield, Ill.) has been named to the D3soccer.com All-America team. The Panther earned third-team honors after helping the team to a 9-3-8 mark, a spot in the NESCAC Tournament title match and an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament.
Grady, the NESCAC Rookie of the Year, logged nearly every minute in front of the Panther goal this season. He ranked among the national leaders in goals against average (0.49), while he led Division III in save percentage (.890). Grady tallied a season-best 10 saves against Amherst on September 29, and he had three or more saves in 14 matches last fall and didn't surrender a goal during Middlebury's two NCAA Tournament games. He was also a second-team All-New England Regional and All-NESCAC selection.
