Former CVU soccer mates lead college teams

Four seasons ago, Micah Rose and Tyler Macnee led Champlain Valley Union High’s soccer team to a state Division 1 title.

Now, as college juniors, they are leading their teams into NCAA tournament action.

Rose, a midfielder and team captain at Swarthmore College in Lancaster, Pa., was named to the All-Centennial Conference team for a second straight year after pacing the Garnets to a 15-1-3 record and a spot in the NCAA Division 3 Tournament.

With Rose scoring six goals and eight assists, Swarthmore was ninth in the nation in a recent poll. Rose was also named to the 2010 Conference Academic Honor Roll.

Macnee, along with former Redhawk teammate Carson Cornbrooks, have Middlebury College headed to the Division 3 sectionals this coming weekend after a 2-1 victory over William Paterson College on Sunday. Macnee potted the game-winning goal with just under a minute remaining in regulation time.

Cornbrooks, a senior, has played in 77 games since joining the Panthers in his 2007 freshman year.

The 15-3-1 Panthers will take on Babson on Saturday at Bowdoin College in Maine.

Wrestling sign-ups on Thursday
