Rosenfeld becomes the Diplomats first CC Player of the Year since 2007 and the fourth in the program's history. The junior defender is only the fifth back in the history of the conference to earn the award and makes the list for the second time in his career after earning a second team nod in 2012.
A two-time team captain, Rosenfeld anchored a defensive unit that ranked 23rd in the nation in shutout percentage (0.53) and 24th in goals against average (0.66). The Diplomats led the CC in fewest goals allowed with 13 and started off the season with eight-consecutive shutouts, a mark that led the country.
Beaver lands on the first team for the fourth time in his career, a feat that has been accomplished by only five others in CC history, while becoming only the second F&M men's soccer player to do so. He was the lone unanimous selection of this season's first team.
The senior forward led the conference in goals with 12, while his 26 points were good for second. His game-winning score against Swarthmore on Nov. 2, tied him atop of the school record books with 44.
White dominated between the pipes, leading the conference with a 0.62 goals against average, which was the 22nd best in the nation, and shutouts with eight. The junior goalkeeper guided the Diplomats to 12 wins, good for the second-highest total in F&M single season history.
Scott earns the distinction for the first time in his career after starting all 18 games he appeared in. The junior defender scored the game-winning goal against Dickinson in overtime to hand F&M the CC Title on Nov. 10.
The Diplomats earned the conference's automatic qualifier for the NCAA Tournament after downing the Red Devils 2-1 on Saturday. F&M continues its memorable season on Saturday when the Diplomats take on Catholic. The first round matchup will be hosted by Dickinson and is slated for a 7:30 p.m. start.
