COLUMBIA-Missouri senior face-off specialist Phil Bergman (Media, PA, Strath Haven) and sophomore midfielder Scott Flynn (St. Louis, Marquette) were named to the MCLA Scholar Athlete (Academic All-American) team.
Bergman and Flynn become the first Tigers in school history to be named to the team.
To qualify for Scholar Athlete recognition, a student-athlete must have a cumulative grade point average of 3.2 or higher while also finding a place on his respective first or second team all-conference list. There were 74 selections in Division I.
Bergman went 235-333 (71%) from the X in 2016 with 96 gbs. He finished his career as Missouri’s record leader in face-off wins, win percentage and ground balls and is one of the first face-off specialists in the GRLC to win 600 face-offs in a career..
In Flynn’s first season with the Tigers, the sophomore helped lead a resurgent offense playing primarily with the first line. He finished second on the team in goals (21) and third on the teams in assists (11) and points (32). As a incoming junior, Flynn still has three years of eligibility left with the program and will be a crucial part of the Missouri offense in 2017.
