Theo Hooker ’18 Headlines All-SCAC Selections

Colorado College goalkeeper Theo Hooker ’18 was named co-Defensive Player of the Year by the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference and was one of five Tigers who earned all-conference honors for their efforts during the 2017 season.

Joining Hooker as first-team selections were midfielder Joel Frykholm ’18 and defender Griffin Wesley ’19. Forward Sam Markin ’18 and senior defender Henry Schuler ’18 earned spots on the second team, while defender Keenan Amer ’19 received honorable-mention accolades.

Hooker, who landed a spot on the first team for the second year in a row, earned all-SCAC honors for the fourth time. He also was a two-time second-team selection, including his freshman season when he was named the league’s Newcomer of the Year.

The native of Albuquerque, New Mexico, posted an 11-4-4 overall record and a 9-2-3 mark in conference play. Hooker led the SCAC with an .841 saves percentage and tied for first with nine clean sheets and a 0.65 GAA. He holds the program goalkeeping records with 35 shutouts and 51 career victories. He also is second with a 0.63 goals-against average and fifth with 215 saves. 

Frykholm, last season’s SCAC Newcomer of the Year, led the Tigers with seven goals and 16 points, both of which were personal single-season highs. He scored a pair of game-winning goals, and set up the deciding score in the 2-1 victory at the University of Dallas. In conference games only, he tied for seventh with five goals and tied for 10th with 12 points.

Wesley helped anchor the Colorado College defense that tied for first in the conference by allowing only 13 total goals. The team’s 0.61 GAA ranked 19th nationally and tied for first in the SCAC.

He scored his first career goal in the 2-1 victory at No. 32 Luther College in the season opener and struck for his first game winner in the 1-0 win over Centenary College.

Despite being limited to eight games due to injuries, Markin tied for second on the team with four goals and was fourth with nine points, which were both personal single-season highs.

In conference games, Markin finished third in the league averaging 0.57 goals and tied for fifth in the conference averaging 1.14 goals per game.

Schuler led the team with 1,885 minutes at his center back position and went the distance in all 10 shutouts, three of which were 0-0 ties.

In 14 league games, the Tigers posted seven clean sheets and allowed only 10 goals, good for a 0.68 GAA which ranked second in the SCAC.

Amer, who ranked second on the team with 1,865 minutes, was a key contributor at both ends of the field. He was a fixture on the Colorado College defense that ranked second in the conference with 10 shutouts.

At the offensive end of the pitch, Amer tied for third on the team with four assists and tied for fifth with six points, both of which were single-season highs.

CC finished the season with an overall record of 11-4-5 and a 9-2-3 mark in conference play.
