Ivy League Release

Penn had four soccer players named All-Ivy on Wednesday, two players earning second-team honors with another pair picking up honorable mention recognition.

The four All-Ivy selections match the total from 2011, with only second-team All-Ivy selection Duke Lacroix returning to the squad. Lacroix was third on the team in goals with five, adding a team-high four assists for a career-high 14 points from the forward spot. The 2011 Ivy League Rookie of the Year, Lacroix was honorable mention All-Ivy last season.

Co-captain Travis Cantrell led the Quakers in scoring - and ranked third among Ivy players - with 16 points en route to his second-team All-Ivy honors. He set a career high in points and goals (seven) in his senior season, ranking 55th among all Division I players in goals-per-game at 0.50. The second-team All-Ivy selection for Cantrell is the first all-league honor for Cantrell in his career.

Penn's second co-captain, Jonny Dolezal, picked up his first career All-Ivy selection in his first season sliding to center back for the Quakers. An honorable mention All-Ivy choice, Dolezal started 15 matches for the Quakers, finishing the season with one goal and two assists. With four defenders moving to new positions to start the season, Dolezal was counted on to lead the group, and the group came together by the end of the season, lowering its goals-per-game allowed number by 0.8 over the final six matches.

Stephen Baker returns to the All-Ivy team as an honorable mention selection in 2012 after second-team All-Ivy honors in 2010. Baker ranked second on the team in both goals (six) and points (14), including a four-goal game against Rider in September.
