WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University men's soccer team earned an at-large berth in the NCAA Tournament on Monday afternoon. The team received the sixth overall seed in the tournament of 48 where the top 16 teams are seeded and receive a first-round bye. This marks the squad's third tournament berth in the past four seasons.
The Hoyas are 13-4-2 on the season winning a share of the BIG EAST Regular Season Championship for the third time in four years. Georgetown went to the BIG EAST Championship Semifinal at PPL Park where the Hoyas tied fourth-seeded Providence in double overtime, 0-0, but failed to advance in penalty kicks. Along the way, the Hoyas have had impressive milestones including setting the new program record for season shutouts with 13. Additionally, junior goalkeeper Tomas Gomez (Webster Groves, Mo/Webster Groves) set the record for career shutouts (25) and season shutouts (11).
The Blue & Gray has been in the national polls for the entire season. Last week, the team was No. 7 in the NSCAA poll, No. 4 in TopDrawerSoccer.com's poll and No. 7 in the NCAA's last RPI.
The Hoyas have received a number of accolades this season with the squad earned four of the BIG EAST's top awards. Senior forward Steve Neumann (New Hope, Pa./Council Rock North) was named the Offensive Player of the Year, senior midfielder Joey Dillon (Rochester Hills, Mich./Rochester Adams) was the co-Midfielder of the Year and Gomez was named the co-Goalkeeper of the Year. Additionally, Head Coach Brian Wiese and his staff were named the conference's Coaching Staff of the Year.
Neumann, Dillon and Gomez, along with sophomore forward Brandon Allen (Old Bridge, N.J./St. Joseph's) all earned First Team All-BIG EAST, while sophomore defender Keegan Rosenberry (Ronks, Pa./Lancaster Mennonite) earned a spot on the second team.
Additionally, midfielder Bakie Goodman (Sarasota, Fla./Pine View School for the Gifted), midfielder Alex Muyl (New York, N.Y./Bard) and defender Joshua Yaro (Santa Barbara, Calif./Cate School) were all placed on the BIG EAST All-Rookie Squad.
Georgetown's NCAA Tournament berth is the third under Wiese. The Hoyas have been to the tournament on four previous occasions. Last season, the squad was the national runner up falling to Indiana, 1-0, in the national championship game. Prior to last year, the program had never moved beyond the second round of the tournament with previous appearances in 1997 and 1994. The Hoyas are 5-3-2 overall in the NCAA Tournament.
The Blue & Gray will play the winner of Old Dominion and Drexel. Georgetown is 1-3 all-time against Old Dominion and has never faced the Drexel University Dragons.
