Audet, Jentgen honored by NSCAA
NEWPORT, R.I. - Salve Regina University senior Trevor Audet (Duxbury, Vt.) and junior Ian Jentgen (Columbus, Ohio) have been named to the 2010 National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) College Men Scholar All-East Team. Jentgen garnered Second Team honors while Audet was an Honorable Mention selection.
Jentgen holds a 3.51 grade point average (GPA) in financial management. A three-year starter for head coach Craig O'Rourke II, Jentgen started all 22 matches this fall and was a stalwart on a defense that allowed 20 goals in 22 matches. He took most goal and free kicks for O'Rourke and finished the season with seven points (1-5-7).
Audet, meanwhile, appeared in all 22 games (10 starts) and recorded three points (1-1-3). An English/communication studies major with a 3.48 GPA, Audet capped his career with six points (2-2-6) in 66 career games (32 starts). He was also an Honorable Mention selection last year.
"I am extremely happy for both Trevor and Ian to be recognized with these awards," said O'Rourke. "I know how serious they both are in terms of their studies and I genuinely believe that they typify the term 'student-athlete.' Their commitment in the classroom, as well as on the playing field, has helped to raise the standard of this program both academically and statistically. They are both major contributors to our team winning the NSCAA College Team Academic Achievement Award earlier this fall."
To be eligible for NSCAA Scholar honors, a student-athlete must be at least a junior academically and have maintained a cumulative GPA above 3.3 for every semester of their college career.
Earlier this month, the Salve Regina University men's and women's soccer teams were each recognized by the NSCAA for having a team GPA of 3.0 or higher for the 2009-10 academic year. SRU was one of 129 schools which saw both its men's and women's programs honored.
