Three soccer players honored
Susquehanna placed three players on the 2009 all-Landmark Conference men's soccer team, as announced on Nov. 11.

He led the team in assists in each of the past two seasons as well, including four helpers this year. This 2009 honor marks the third straight all-Landmark year for Robertiello, who took a second-team award in 2007 and a first-team in 2008. He was the 2007
Landmark Rookie of the Year.
Eisenhart notched a goal and two assists this season for a total of four points. As the team's top midfielder, he helped Susquehanna post three shutouts.
Cordell Carey, a 2009 co-captain, was a part of all three shutouts as well. He also scored a goal and added three assists for five points, including a game-winning goal.
