Lookout Mountain, GA- The NCCAA has released the 2009 men's and women's soccer award-winners, and Covenant College is proud to announce that Julian Allgeier and Jenny Carter have been named All-Americans. Both players had remarkable seasons as they each led their respective teams to the semifinals of the NCCAA national tournament:
Julian finished the season as the men's leading point-getter with 43 (18 goals and 7 assists) in his 21 games played. In fact, the forward from Ratingen, Germany recorded 2 hat tricks (against California Lutheran on September 12th and Mt. Vernon Nazarene on December 2nd) and 3 game winning goals, all of which came in the NCCAA Region or National tournament. The opponents who fell victim to his game-winners were King College, Mt. Vernon Nazarene University, and Mid-America University. Allgeier also made the NCCAA national tournament team alongside captain David Nielson.
Senior mid-fielder Jenny Carter, on the other hand, led the Lady Scots in points with 14 (4 goals and 6 assists).
