Helps Anchor Yale Defense

NEW HAVEN, Conn. – Sophomore Nick Alers, who has helped anchor Yale's stingy defense, has been named to the Capital One Academic All-District I first team. Alers, an economics and political science major, has started 14 games and has one assist.

First‐team Academic All‐District honorees advance to the Capital One Academic All‐America Team ballot, where first‐, second‐ and third‐team All‐America honorees will be selected later this month.

Alers has played a key role on a Yale defense that has yielded only 14 goals. Last year, he was an honorable mention All-Ivy selection and was selected as the team's most valuable player.

Alers and his teammates host Brown on Saturday at 5:30 p.m.
