KANSAS CITY, Mo. – For the second consecutive season, the University at Albany men’s soccer team had two players selected to a United Soccer Coaches Scholar All-America Team.  This year’s representatives are Daniel Krutzen and Nico Solabarrieta, who were both named to the Second Team.

Krutzen, a senior defender from Lanaken, Belgium, earns his second-straight Scholar All-America honor, after being named to the 2017 First Team.  Krutzen, who earlier was named an All-America Second Team Senior CLASS Award honoree, has compiled a 3.82 GPA studying Business.  He was also named USC First Team Scholar All-East, and America East All-Academic, each for the second consecutive season.  Also for the second straight season, Krutzen led both UAlbany and the America East in assists.

Solabarrieta, a senior forward from Santiago, Chile, earns his first Scholar All-America honor after being named America East All-Academic and USC First Team Scholar All-East.  Solabarrieta has pulled down a 3.46 GPA studying Business with a minor in Portuguese, while leading UAlbany and the America East in goals and points.  Solabarrieta was also named America East First Team All-Conference this season.

To be eligible for Scholar All-America honors, a player must be a junior or above who has started more than 50% of their team’s games in the designated season while maintaining a 3.30 cumulative GPA or higher.  Transfer students are eligible for the award once they are in their second year at their current institution. 

The 2018 Scholar All-America selections will be formally recognized at the All-America Ceremony & Reception on January 12, 2019 in Chicago at the 2019 United Soccer Coaches Convention.
