Gaumer Named Third Team All-American for Second-Consecutive Year

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Saint Joseph's College senior defender Dalton Gaumer (Corona, Calif.) has been selected, for the second-consecutive season, as a United Soccer Coaches Third Team All-American, as announced by the organization on Thursday on the eve of the 2018 NCAA Division III Men's and Women's Soccer Championship semifinals in Greensboro, N.C.

Gaumer is one of just four defenders from around the country to be named as a United Soccer Coaches All-American multiple times and is one of only six New England Region players to be listed on the three teams totaling 49 of the best NCAA DIII Men's Soccer players.

He is the first Saint Joseph's athlete to earn All-America honors in consecutive seasons since the College became a full-time NCAA DIII member in 2002. Only eight other athletes in the 48-year history of SJC Athletics have garnered multiple All-America accolades – the last to do so was former baseball standout Steve Osborne '01, who collected NAIA All-America honors in 1999, 2000, and 2001.

The two-year captain garners national acclaim after scoring a goal with three assists for five total points while leading a defense that allowed only six goals over 22 games this fall. The Monks led the nation in shutout percentage (86.4%) and ranked second in the country with a 0.261 goals-against average.

A two-time GNAC Defensive Player of the Year honoree, Gaumer played in 84 games – including 83 starts – with five goals and six assists for 16 total points during his collegiate career. Over the last three seasons he led an SJC defense that posted a 0.25 goals-against average with 17 tallies allowed in 66 games.

A total of 98 players (49 men, 49 women) in NCAA Division III soccer receive All-America recognition this year, led by six three-time All-Americans: Calvin College defender Trent Vegter, University of Chicago forward Max Lopez, Trinity University (Texas) forward Austin Michaelis, Washington University (Mo.) midfielder Maggie Crist, Swarthmore College forward Marin McCoy and University of Chicago midfielder Jenna McKinney.

This year's NCAA Division III All-Americans will be formally acknowledged for their accomplishments at the United Soccer Coaches All-America Ceremony & Reception on Jan. 12, 2019 at McCormick Place West Building in conjunction with the 2019 United Soccer Coaches Convention in Chicago.

The SJC men's soccer team, led by fifth-year Head Coach Adrian Dubois, registered another historic season this fall setting program records for wins (21), winning streak (21), goals (81), assists (64), points (226), and shots (513) and, with a loss to Amherst College in the second round of the NCAA Tournament, saw a 42-game undefeated streak – the fifth-longest in NCAA DIII Men's Soccer history – come to a close.

Saint Joseph's is the only New England NCAA DIII Men's Soccer program – and one of just seven in the country – to advance to the second round of the national tournament in each of the last three seasons. Since 2016, the Monks rank fifth in NCAA DIII Men's Soccer in total wins (55) and winning percentage (.833).
