York, Pa. – Marymount University men’s soccer junior forward Kjell Crooke was named First Team All-Capital Athletic Conference, as announced by the league office on Friday. Crooke led the Saints with nine goals and five assists, both team highs, for 23 points to place fourth in the league standings.
The 27th All-CAC selection for the Saints in program history, Crooke is the first First Team honoree since 2005 when former MU standouts Justin Kessler and Jeff Hoke both garnered First Team accolades. Crooke is just the 10th Saint to be named First Team All-CAC since the award’s inception in 1991.
Starting all 18 games for the Saints in 2010, Crooke notched his first goal in the second game of the season against NAIA foe Webber. He added multi-goal games against Moravian, including the game-winner, and Gallaudet while also tallying the game-winning score against St. Mary’s (Md.).
Crooke, a local product from Vienna, Va., was named CAC Athlete of the Week once this season after leading the Saints to a CAC victory over Wesley.
Marymount went 8-8-3 in 2010, the program’s best overall record since 1999. The Saints made their 20th consecutive CAC Tournament and were eliminated after Stevenson advanced in a shootout following a 1-1 draw.
