Zaring Named All-Conference

By Lancaster Brown

YORK, Pa.—After a superb season in the box, Southern Virginia University goalkeeper Scott Zaring was named to the All-Capital Athletic Conference men's soccer team Wednesday afternoon in York, Pa.

Zaring, a sophomore from Lynchburg, Va., earned a spot on the All-CAC Second Team for his efforts contributed to the program during the 2013 season and the Knights' defensive front.

"I'm really proud of Scott for achieving this honor," said Southern Virginia Director of Soccer Matt Grawrock. "He worked so hard this year. He was a tremendous leader and a tremendous player for us. He saved us on so many occasions, and it's fantastic to see the conference recognize him for his efforts.

"I think he was one of the best goalkeepers in the conference and one of the best in the region, so this is great validation for him. He's a special player, and I'm really grateful he was in goal for us this year."

He made 166 saves on the season with a .748 save percentage and earned one shutout. As a captain of the team and the defensive anchor, he led the Knights to their only win of the season by making six saves and posting the shutout against Marymount.
