Complete WCC Release

SAN BRUNO, Calif. - Gonzaga's men's soccer team was well-represented with five members on the West Coast Conference All-Academic Team, including First Team selection Chris Lowrimore, league officials announced on Wednesday.

At the conclusion of each athletic season, the WCC selects an all-academic squad for each WCC-sponsored sport. To be considered, a student-athlete must maintain at least a 3.20 cumulative grade point average, while also being a significant contributor to his team. This season 37 men's soccer student-athletes met or exceeded the selection criteria.

For Gonzaga, Chris Lowrimore earned his first First-Team nod after being named to the honorable mention last season, while Colton Cavey, Jalen Crisler, Jakob Granlund and Ben White all earned honorable mention on this year's list. Crisler and Granlund both earned their second consecutive honorable mention.

Lowrimore, Gonzaga's redshirt senior goalkeeper, holds a 3.74 grade-point average in human physiology and has started all 17 games for the Zags while playing all 15:64.27 in goal. He has posted four shutouts on the season, which is tied for the sixth-best single season total ever at GU. Lowrimore ranks third in the league in shutouts and third in the league in goals against average (1.09), while leading the defense to a league-best 19 goals allowed on the season.

Cavey, a sophomore midfielder, has a 3.35 GPA and is an undeclared business major. He's played in 14 games with 12 starts, recording two assists and 14 shots with four on goal to rank seventh on the team. From his midfield position, Cavey has helped the defense to a league-best 19 goals allowed on the season and helped the offense rank second in the league in shots and shots per game.

Crisler, a redshirt sophomore defender, has a 3.56 GPA in business administration, while playing in 15 games with five starts on the season. He's also been a big part of the defense that's allowed a league-best 19 goals. Crisler has managed six shots and two shots on goal from his defender position, while helping the defense rank second in the league with a 1.09 goals against average.

Granlund, a junior forward, has a 3.58 GPA in business administration and has been one of the top offensive players for GU this season. He's played in 16 matches with 16 starts and is tied for first on the team with eight points including three goals and two assists, both tied for the team lead. He ranks first on team in shots with 48 and shots on goal with 22, while ranking third in the league with 3.0 shots per game. Granlund is also tied for third in the league with two game-winning goals. He's been one of the leaders that has helped the offense rank second in the league in shots and shots per game with Gonzaga outshooting opponents 223-156 and 85-64 in shots on goal.

White, a sophomore defender, has a 3.40 GPA as an undeclared business major while being one of the most versatile players on the team. He's started all 17 games this year for the Zags, and from his defender position still ranks third on the team with seven points, including a tied-team-best three goals and one assist. He's also third on the team with 29 shots and 11 shots on goal. On defense, he's been integral in helping the defense to a league-best 19 goals allowed on the season and second-best 1.09 goals against average.
