Kummer named Soccer All-American

RIVERSIDE — Carroll High School junior goalkeeper, Noah Kummer, has been named a 2013 National Soccer Coaches Association of America All-American.

Kummer, a three-year starter for the Patriots, is the school’s career leader in shutouts (39). Carroll’s record over the past three seasons is 55-3-8, with state championships in 2011 and 2012. Overall, the Patriots have won four of the past six Division II state tournaments.

In 20 games this past fall season, Kummer recorded 10 shutouts and had 72 saves for a .880 saves percentage. The Brookville resident was named the Greater Catholic League’s Athlete of the Year in boys soccer and was a first-team all-GCL Co-Ed selection. His coach, Scott Molfenter, was named the GCL’s Boys Coach of the Year.

Carroll recorded a 13-3-4 overall record and tied Middletown Fenwick atop the GCL North Division with a 5-0-2 mark. The team lost to eventual state semifinalist Cincinnati Indian Hill in the district finals.
