CoSIDA Academic All-District Release

Senior defender Bryan Doyle (Southington, Conn.) of the Western New England University men's soccer team has been named to the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Academic All-District Team for the second time in his career.

CoSIDA's Academic All-District Teams recognize the nation's top student-athletes for their combined performances on the field and in the classroom. In order to be eligible, a student-athlete must have a cumulative grade point average of 3.30 or higher, have reached sophomore academic and athletic standing, and be a significant on-field contributor.

Doyle, an accounting major with a 3.85 cumulative GPA, is a two-time Commonwealth Coast Conference All-Academic selection. He is a member of the Chi Alpha Sigma, Beta Alpha Psi, Beta Gamma Sigma, and Alpha Lambda Delta Honor Societies. Doyle earns CoSIDA Academic All-District honors for the second consecutive season.

The past two years, Doyle has served as a Volunteer Income Tax Assistant with Springfield Partners for Community Action, assisting economically disadvantaged area residents in competing their tax returns. He is also a student member of the Connecticut Society of Certified Public Accountants.

On the field, Doyle served as a team co-captain this season and anchored a Western New England defensive unit that registered 11 shutouts in 20 games. He started all 17 of the matches he appeared in, recording a career-best four points with one goal and two assists.

Doyle capped his career with his third consecutive All-CCC selection, earning first team accolades. He was named to the second team as a junior last season and the third team as a sophomore in 2017. Doyle appeared in 76 contests over the course of his four-year career, making 70 starts.

Doyle is among 11 student-athletes to earn Academic All-District honors from District 1, which includes schools in Massachusetts and Maine. He is one of two representatives from the CCC. With Doyle's selection to the CoSIDA Academic All-District Team, he advances to the CoSIDA Academic All-America ballot. Academic All-America honorees will be announced in early December.

Western New England finished the 2019 campaign with a 12-6-2 record, including a 4-3-1 mark in CCC play that was good for fourth in the league standings. The Golden Bears fell to Nichols College in the first round of the CCC Tournament.
