Four Men's Soccer Players Named All-New England
Dec. 9, 2003
Four members of the Brown men's soccer team were named All-New England for the 2003 season. Senior Adom Crew (Columbia, MD) and juniors Jeff Larentowicz (West Chester, PA) and Chris Gomez (Bellflower, CA) were all named to the First Team while junior Macros Romaneiro (North Brunswick, NJ) was a Second Team selection.
The Bears captured the Ivy League Title, finishing the season with a 10-4-3 overall and 6-0-1 Ivy League record. The team made its 20th appearance in the NCAA Tournament as well.
A key element to the Bears' success was the return of Crew, who was on his way to a record-breaking season in 2002 before an injury sidelined him just one game into the Ivy League season. In just eight games, Crew racked up ten goals and two assists for 22 points. Crew bounced back to match those totals in 2003, giving him the Ivy League scoring title. His six game-winning goals were tops in the league as well. Crew was a unanimous selection for Ivy Player of the Year.
The core of the Brown defense, Larentowicz recorded two goals and three assists and was a unanimous First Team All-Ivy choice, while Gomez was a stalwart between the pipes, with six shutouts in Ivy play and a record of 10-4-2. He led the league in shutouts (8), goals against average (0.76), saves per game (5.60), and shutouts per game. Romaneiro stepped up in the middle, posting five goals and four assists for 14 points on the year.
