Named To Third Team
NEW HAVEN, Conn. – Sophomore Nick Alers, who anchored a Yale defense that yielded only 16 goals and posted four shutouts, has been named to the National Soccer Coaches Association of America All-Northeast Region third team.
Alers started 16 games for the Bulldogs and was a first team All-Ivy selection. His top performance may have come against Dartmouth when he held Ivy League Player of the Year Lucky Mkosana scoreless, limiting him to only two shots, in the Bulldogs' 2-0 victory.
Alers has started 32 games for Yale in the last two years. He was an honorable mention All-Ivy selection as a freshman.
