Soccer star

     Thoroughbred Andrew Simon ’02 was named to the Verizon Academic All-America first team in soccer.

Using his head: Academic all-star Andrew Simon ’02
     Just thirty-three athletes were selected from more than 14,000 soccer players at nearly 700 colleges and universities.

     A midfielder, Simon led Skidmore in scoring this year, with 15 goals and 3 assists. He’s now Skidmore’s all-time leading scorer in soccer, with a career record of 48 goals and 17 assists. This year the team finished with a 12-4-1 record, qualifying for its first-ever postseason bid—at the ECAC Upstate New York tournament, where it lost, 2-1, to the University of Rochester.

     A business major with a 3.73 grade-point average, Simon also earned UCAA all-academic and all-conference, plus NSCAA all-region, honors.

     This year marks the fiftieth anniversary of the Academic All-America program. Simon is Skidmore’s ninth Academic All-American and the first in soccer. —WJ
