About the Program
2012 NCAA Soccer Championship
Winners of five MIAC regular-season titles over the last six seasons (2007, 2008, 2009, 2011, and 2012), the Knights have posted 12 winning seasons in the past 13 years while playing in one of the most competitive men's soccer conferences in the country. The Knights made NCAA Championships appearances in 2008 and 2012. Carleton owns a 46-8-6 record (.817) in conference games in the last six seasons.
The 2012 squad earned a share of the MIAC regular-season crown after accumulating a 8-1-1 conference record (17-2-2 overall). The Knights made their sixth straight postseason appearance behind the work of All-Americans Branden McGarrity '16 and Neil Bartholomay '14. Head coach Bob Carlson was also named the 2012 MIAC Coach-of-the-Year.
In addition to success on the field, the Knights pride themselves on their success in the classroom. The squad has received 16 straight team academic awards and its 3.36 GPA (for the 2011-12 academic year) was 24th among all NCAA men’s soccer programs (Division I, II and III).
