TOP MOMENT #5 - READ EARNS ACADEMIC ALL-AMERICAN HONORS
Junior Austin Read was selected to the 2016 College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Academic All-America™ Men's Soccer Third Team. This team recognizes the nation's top student-athletes for their combined performances athletically and in the classroom.
Read is a Electrical Engineering major that led Coast Guard to the New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) quarterfinals and a final record of 9-6-3 this past season.
The co-captain has started 53 games while at the Academy scoring 10 goals and recording two assists. He made the NSCAA All-New England team member and was named to the All-NEWMAC second team for the second time in his career.
Read is the first Academic All-American selection since Adam Scalesse (second team) and Ben Wolhaupter (third team) both were named Academic-All Americans as members of the Coast Guard track & field team in 2014.
