Chadwick Named First-Team All-Conference
PASADENA, Calif. – For the first time since 1989 a Caltech men's soccer player was placed on the SCIAC all-conference first-team as Grayson Chadwick earned the honor as the conference announced their season ending award on Tuesday.
The all-conference team is voted on by the league's eight head coaches. The last first-team SCIAC honoree from Caltech came 21 years ago when James Ibbetson took home the accolades.
"This is a huge honor for him as well as Caltech Athletics," ninth year head coach Rolando Uribe said. "Grayson has been the face of our program for his four years. He symbolizes dedication, passion, leadership and competitiveness that has never been displayed before in our soccer program. He deserves these honors and we are very proud of his accomplishment."
The squad's captain the last two seasons was one of three Beavers to start all 18 games this season. He was a stalwart for the Caltech defense all season. In addition to his regular role as a middle defender he also started two games in goal. Although he was Caltech's main defender, Chadwick tallied a team high 23 shots. The biology major had one of the best moments of the season when he scored the game winning goal off a bicycle kick in the Beavers 1-0 win over La Sierra in late October. (See Video)
Last season the native of Santa Barbara, Calif. earned SCIAC second-team honors as well as the Brine Award of Distinction.
