Barnes Named CoSIDA Academic All-District II First Team

Nov. 1, 2007

  • Lowe's Senior CLASS Award (Vote for Barnes)

  • ANNAPOLIS, Md. -- The accolades keep rolling in for Navy men's soccer goalkeeper Evan Barnes as he was recently voted to the CoSIDA (College Sports Information Directors of America) All-District II First Team. It marks the second straight year that Barnes was named to the team, as he was a second-team selection a year ago. As a first-team selection, Barnes will now be the running for CoSIDA Academic All-America honors. He is one of seven Patriot League players named All-District first team.

    On the field, Barnes has appeared in eight games in goal for the Mids, posting a 1.19 GAA and a .744 save percentage while making 29 saves with three shutouts. He was named Patriot League Goalkeeper of the Week on Sept. 4, after leading Navy to a pair of season-opening shutouts, including a blanking of rival Air Force on Sept. 2. In his last outing, he stopped a season-high eight shots in a 2-1 win over Longwood on Oct. 23.

    In the classroom, Barnes owns a 3.88 GPA in honors systems engineering and ranks 57th (out of 1,085 students) on the academic order of merit. He has posted a 4.0 GPA during every semester he has been on the men's soccer team. Barnes led the Patriot League Academic Honor Roll for Men's Varsity Soccer with a 4.0 GPA, and was one of two players in the Patriot League to have a 4.0 GPA throughout the championship season a year ago.

    Barnes, who hails from Dublin, Ohio, is currently one of 10 finalists for the Lowe's Senior CLASS Award which is based on personal qualities that define a complete student-athlete. While the on-field performance thus far during the college soccer season was a factor in determining the finalists, the criteria also includes a large emphasis on the classroom, character and community service. Barnes currently leads in the voting process with 28 percent of the tallies, and voting will run through November 21. A winner will be named at the NCAA Men's Soccer Championship in Cary, N.C., on Dec. 14-16.
