Men’s soccer collects slew of postseason awards

Four men’s soccer players earned a combined seven Atlantic 10 postseason accolades, according to two conference releases.

Senior forward Oscar Haynes Brown, sophomore goalkeeper Justin Grady, graduate student midfielder Sandro Weber and sophomore midfielder Tom Cooklin nabbed All-Conference honors. Weber, Cooklin and Grady also earned spots on the All-Championship team after GW dropped the title game to Fordham Saturday.

Haynes Brown earned a spot on the All-Conference First Team for the second time in his career after receiving the honor his sophomore season. He led the team with five goals, two of which were game-winners, playing in eight games and starting five of those matchups. He fired 15 shots and 10 were on frame, giving him a .667 shot on-goal percentage.

Grady was named to the All-Conference Second Team, marking the first postseason honor of his career. He served as the team’s primary netminder, putting in 968 minutes between the pipes and starting all 10 games. His .650 goals against average ranks him in the top-30 of all Division I goalkeepers, and his .857 save percentage places him in the top-15 of all Division I goalkeepers.

Weber and Cooklin were named to the All-Conference Academic Team. Weber notched three goals, including two game-winners, and two assists this season, firing on net at a 32.1 percent clip. He was a mainstay in the lineup, starting all 10 of the squad’s games.

Cooklin spread the wealth, dishing a team-leading five assists and finding the back of the net once this year. He started all nine games he appeared in.

Grady, Weber and Cooklin were named to the All-Championship Team after lifting GW to the title game for the first time since 2004. In the first game of the championship, Weber headed in the game-winner on a ball from Cooklin flicked on by freshman midfielder Carter Humm. Grady matched his career-high six saves to preserve the clean sheet and set a date with Fordham.

GW closed its season with a 2–0 loss to the Rams Saturday in the championship game.
