With 16 returning letterwinners including five who either received first or second team All-MIAA recognition a year ago, the Calvin men’s soccer team will seek to win its third consecutive league title this fall.
Over the last two years, Calvin has produced a combined won-loss record of 29-10-3 including 24-2-2 in MIAA play. A key to Calvin’s success has been its defensive play, particularly in conference games. During its 2007 MIAA title season, the Knights gave up just nine goals in league games to lead all conference schools. In 2008, the Knights gave up just eight goals in league play, again leading all MIAA schools.
