CHESTERTOWN — Washington striker Greg Adams has been selected to the College Sports Information Directors of America Academic All-District II team for men’s soccer, recognized for his excellence in the classroom and on the playing field.

A fifth-year senior from Pasadena, Adams is in an elite group of 11 scholar athletes from NCAA Division III schools in the district that encompasses Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Rhode Island, Vermont, West Virginia and the District of Columbia.

He is a business major with a cumulative grade point average of 3.54 (on a 4.0 scale).

Adams (10-6-26) appeared in all 21 matches with 20 starts for the Centennial Conference champion Shoremen. He tied for the team lead in goals, assists and points.

He scored his fourth game-winning goal for 15-5-1 Washington on Nov. 14 in the 2-0 upset of No. 11-ranked Montclair State in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.

Coach Roy Dunshee said Adams is a “workhorse of a striker. Power, pace, skill and a motor that never stalls. He’s an all-around excellent player.”

Adams and the other first-team Academic All-District honorees advance to the CoSIDA Academic All-America ballot. First-, second- and third-team Academic All-America honorees will be announced in early December.
