Three Lakeland Muskies men soccer players were honored by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America in the 2005 All-Wisconsin NCAA Div. III Men's Soccer Team. Senior defenseman Ryan Holl (Plymouth, Ind./Plymouth) and junior forward Scott Kress (Kiel/Kiel) were named to the second team, while senior goalkeeper Joe Silverberg (South Bend, Ind./South Bend Clay) earned honorable mention honors.
Kress is making his third appearance on the NSCAA All-Wisconsin NCAA Div. III Men's Team. The forward was tied for second on the team in scoring with five goals in 13 games. He also led the team in both shots and shots on goal.
"For Scotty (Kress) the goals were down this year, but he was also a marked man," said head coach Marc Colwell. "He put in a lot of work, was a marked man and took away a lot of pressure from the other players. I expect him to be a senior leader and expect him to be on the first team next year as one of the better players in the region."
Holl served as team captain this season and was one of the most reliable players for the Muskies on defense.
Silverberg tied his previous record in single season shutouts with five this season. The goaltender also holds the Muskie career record for shutouts with 13 and his 1.20 goals against average this past season also was the best in Lakeland history.
"It is nice to see Ryan (Holl) and Joe (Silverberg) be honored on the All-Wisconsin team," said Colwell. "Sometimes it's hard for goalkeepers and defensemen to get the recognition that they deserve, because things are stat driven."
The Muskies soccer team played a tough schedule this past season filled with perennial NCAA tournament teams and finished 6-8-4 overall, while tying for third with a 3-1-3 record in the conference. Five of their six non-conference losses were by one goal.
