Cornell named NSCAA All-Region

Former Warren County High School standout Nick Cornell has been named to the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) All-South Atlantic Region squad.

Cornell, a sophomore midfielder for Randolph College, garnered third-team all-region honors after helping lead the WildCats to their first-ever Old Dominion Athletic Conference championship. Randolph reached the round of 16 in the NCAA Division III men's soccer tournament, falling to the University of Texas-Tyler 2-1 in overtime. Randolph was ranked 18th in the final NSCAA poll and 21st in the final D3soccer.com rankings.

Cornell finished strong for Randolph, scoring three goals in the NCAA tournament. He completed his season with eight goals in all and six assists to rank fourth in the league with 22 points.

Cornell's teammate and fellow sophomore Corey Sindle was a first-team selection as a forward.
