Ney Selected To CoSIDA 2018 Google Cloud Academic All-District Team

KINGS POINT, N.Y. (Nov. 9, 2018) – The College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) announced the 2018 Google Cloud Academic All-District Teams for men's soccer on Thursday and U.S. Merchant Marine Academy senior Sam Ney (Vicenza, Italy) has been selected to the NCAA DIII District 3 (New York) Team as a defender. 

Ney is the only Skyline Conference student-athlete represented on the All-District Team. Earlier this week, he was named to the All-Skyline First Team after his efforts for the Mariners throughout the 2018 season. 

A quick and crafty outside defender for the Mariners, Ney was a critical part of the Mariner back row that helped contribute to a total of nine shutouts on the season. The Mariners also allowed the least amount of goals among all Skyline teams all season long – just 14. Ney also chipped in offensively with three goals, including two in the Skyline first round matchup against St. Joseph's-L.I., after which he was selected as the conference Player of the Week. 

Throughout his career, Ney played in a total of 43 games. He was a part of 19 Mariner shutouts over three seasons. 

The First-Classman of the Class of 2019 is working towards a degree in Maritime Logistics & Security and a U.S. Coast Guard Deck License.
