Men's Soccer Team Picture- 2012 NCAA Soccer Championship

2012 NCAA Soccer Championship

Winners of five MIAC regular-season titles over the last six seasons (2007, 2008, 2009, 2011, and 2012) and a postseason title in 2013, the Knights have posted 13 winning seasons in the past 14 years while playing in one of the most competitive men's soccer conferences in the country.  The Knights made NCAA Championships appearances in 2008, 2012, and 2013. Carleton owns a 53-10-7 record (.807) in conference games in the last seven seasons.

The 2013 squad won an automatic bid to the NCAA Championships after winning the MIAC postseason crown, capping off a 7-2-1 conference season (15-3-3 overall). Leading the charge into their back-to-back appearances at the national tournament were two-time All-American Neil Bartholomay '14 and All-Region selection Branden McGarrity '16.

In addition to success on the field, the Knights pride themselves on their success in the classroom. The squad has received 17 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).
