Three Bulldogs Earn All-Ivy Recognition

Rose, Chulick Named Second Team; Hackbarth Selected Honorable Mention

NEW HAVEN, Conn. - Three Yale men's soccer players have earned 2009 All-Ivy recognition. Junior Brad Rose, who led the team with 16 points, and senior Travis Chulick, who finished third in the Ivy League in saves (55), were both named to the second team, while sophomore Andy Hackbarth, who helped anchor Yale's defense, was an honorable mention selection.

Rose, a forward from Toronto, Ontario, enjoyed a breakthrough season for the Bulldogs. His six goals and four assists both tied for the team lead. He entered the year with two goals and two assists in his career. His top performance came at Columbia when he scored both goals in a 2-1 win and was named the Ivy League Player of the Week.

Chulick, a Camp Hill, Pa., native, started all but one game in goal and posted a 1.57 goals against average with a .698 save percentage. In his last two years, Chulick played 3,093 out of a possible 3,183 minutes in goal.

Hackbarth, a defender from Bend, Ore., earned All-Ivy recognition for the second straight year. He was limited to 14 games because of injury, but still scored two goals in addition to his key role on Yale's back line.
