The announcement was made on November 30 for the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) All-Americans and Daktronics-NAIA All-American Scholar-Athletes. The Cornerstone men's soccer team placed four players on the NAIA Scholar-Athlete award.
Junior defender Mark Kunnen, senior midfielder Tyler Mitchell, senior defender Jesse Pipe, and senior defender Doug Sjoerdsma all represent the Golden Eagles for the prestigious honor. Student-athletes are nominated by their institution's head coach and must maintain a minimum grade point average of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale and must have achieved a junior academic status in order to qualify for the honor.
The Golden eagles finished one of their most successful seasons this past fall with an overall record of 14-3-2. The men finished the WHAC regular season with a commanding first place position with a 10-1 record in league play. Cornerstone reached the finals of the conference only to end up losing in a tough penalty kick battle to Aquinas College.
