Almodovar, Ranalli, Rudolph Tabbed Men's Soccer Captains
Trio Tabbed to Lead Colonials in 2012
Aug. 15, 2012
WASHINGTON - With the GW men's soccer team set to kick off its 2012 campaign on Thursday with an exhibition match against Lehigh, head coach Craig Jones announced that seniors Alejandro Almodovar and Seth Rudolph and junior Tyler Ranalli have been chosen as team captains by their teammates and coaches.
"These three guys exemplify what we are trying to achieve as a soccer program, both on the field and in the classroom," Coach Jones said.
Almodovar started seven games in goal last season, his first in the Buff and Blue after transferring to GW from American in the spring of 2011. The Valencia, Calif., native recorded three shutouts, ranking second in the Atlantic 10 with 0.43 shutouts per game played, and he has been named to the A-10 Commissioner's Honor Roll all three semesters in Foggy Bottom.
A two-time A-10 All-Conference selection and the Colonials' top returning scorer, Rudolph ranked among league leaders with eight goals and 19 points in 2011 en route to first-team honors. The native of Belleville, Ill., has scored 18 goals over the last two seasons and needs just five goals and eight points in 2012 to join GW's career top-10 lists in both categories.
Ranalli saw his playing time double as a sophomore, when he made the first six starts of his career and recorded his first collegiate goal and assist. The Powell, Ohio, native has been recognized on the A-10 Commissioner's Honor Roll in each of the last three semesters.
