BABSON PARK, Mass. -- Babson College men’s soccer seniors Dan Fogarty (Brookline, N.H.), Chris Morris (Shoreline, Wash.) and Sean Gleason (Clinton, N.Y.) have all been selected to play in the annual New England Intercollegiate Soccer League (NEISL) Senior All-Star game on May 1st at 2pm hosted by Clark University.
The contest features New England’s top senior athletes from all three divisions of NCAA men’s soccer. Fogarty, Gleason and Morris all finished their careers this past fall after helping the Beavers to back-to-back New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) titles and NCAA Tournament appearances.
This past fall, Fogarty was named to the NSCAA All-New England First Team which was his first All-Region honor of his magnificent four-year career for the Beavers. In 2009, Fogarty led Babso n and the New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) with 13 assists while also contributing four goals for 21 total points. He will graduate with 39 assists in his remarkable career - five better than the next highest total and the most in the 43-year history of the Babson soccer program. In addition to his All-Region honors, Fogarty was also named to the NEWMAC All-Conference First-Team. On top of Fogarty's accomplishments on the field, he has earned the outstanding honor of being named to the NSCAA Scholar Athlete All-America Second Team and to the NSCAA Scholar Athlete All-East Region First Team. These are not the first academic honors for Fogarty as he was also named to the NEWMAC All-Academic team in all three years of eligibility as well as the NSCAA Scholar Athlete All-Region Third Team in 2008.
Also earning his first All-Region honor this past fall, Morris anchored the Beaver defense. Switching from midfield to the back position midway through the season, Morri s played magnificently down the stretch, helping Babson win its final five games and eight of its last nine. The senior defender also contributed an assist on the game-winning goal in a 3-2 overtime win over Coast Guard on September 26. Morris was also named to the NEWMAC All-Conference Second Team.
Gleason finished his career having started 45 of the 58 games in which he appeared throughout his career. He tallied four total assists and was a three-time NEWMAC Academic All-Conference selection. As a junior in 2008, Gleason was also named NSCAA/Adidas Scholar All-East Region Honorable Mention.
As a team in 2009, Babson finished with a record of 15-6-1, including a 6-0 mark in conference play. The Beavers won their second straight NEWMAC Regular Season and Tournament Championships, and earned the program's 21st bid to the NCAA Tournament. Babson fell to Western New England College, 1-0, in a muddy, rain-soaked First Round game at Wesleyan University.
