GROVE CITY, Pa. -- Six members of the Grove City College men's soccer team earned All-Presidents' Athletic Conference recognition from the league's head men's soccer coaches Tuesday afternoon.

Sophomore forward Seth Loew (Center Valley, Pa./Southern Lehigh) and freshman midfielder Dale Reese IV (Rocky Hill, Conn./Loomis Chaffee) both earned First Team All-PAC distinction.

Senior defender Daniel Adams (The Woodlands, Texas/The Woodlands), sophomore goalkeeper Brenden Alfery (Pittsburgh, Pa./Central Catholic) and junior defender George DeAugustino (Cranberry Township, Pa./Seneca Valley) all landed on the Second Team. Sophomore midfielder Justin Phillips (Simi Valley, Calif./Oaks Christian) received Honorable Mention.

Loew led Grove City with nine goals and 21 total points this season. He also shared the team lead in assists (3) with Reese. Loew earned First Team All-PAC honors as a freshman and owns 15 goals for his career. He is a two-year starter and started all 19 matches this year for Grove City (8-5-6 overall, 4-1-3 PAC).

Reese emerged this season and led the conference with 13 total points in conference play. He ranked second on the team with seven goals and 17 points overall.

Adams started 18 matches at outside back and helped the Wolverine defense post seven shutouts and an 0.72 goals-against average this season. Adams also earned Second Team All-Conference in 2012.

Alfery led the conference with a .920 save percentage in league play this year. He also ranked second in league play with an 0.54 goals-against average. For the season, Alfery recorded an .895 save percentage and an 0.69 GAA in 12 starts.

DeAugustino bookended Adams on Grove City's backline and started all eight conference matches after missing the first portion of the season due to injury. He contributed to a defensive effort that surrendered just four goals in league play this year. Overall, DeAugustino started the final 12 matches of 2013. He is a three-year letterwinner for the Wolverines.

Phillips appeared in 14 matches this year for Grove City, including seven starts. He played in all eight conference matches after bouncing back from an early-season injury. Phillips is a two-year starter.

Grove City qualified for the conference tournament and battled Washington & Jefferson to a 0-0 draw in the semifinals November 6. W&J advanced via penalty kicks, however.
