Mount Vernon Nazarene College soccer players Scott Dapprich and Josh Bush were recently honored when the National Christian College Athletic Association released its All-American and Academic All-American teams.
Dapprich, a senior forward from Mount Vernon, Ohio, was selected to the NCCAA All-American Second Team. He led the Cougars with a school-record 25 goals in 1997 and also added 17 assists for a school-record 67 points on the season. Even more impressive is the fact that this was his first year of playing intercollegiate soccer after spending four years as a starter on the men's basketball and baseball teams.
Bush, a junior goalkeeper from Mount Vernon, Ohio, was selected to the NCCAA Academic All-American Team. Bush, who has compiled a 3.559 grade point average, set a new school record with six shutouts during the 1997 season.
The Cougars finished the season with a school-best 14-6-1 mark and a 4-3 Mid-Ohio Conference record.
