Storm Adds Three to 2010 Roster

PAINESVILLE, Ohio – The Lake Erie College men's soccer program have added three College of Southern Maryland transfer student-athletes to its 2010 recruiting class. Each of the three has earned either conference, regional, state or All-American honors and have all signed National Letters of Intent to attend Lake Erie College and play soccer for the Storm beginning in the fall of 2010. 

Signing to the program are Marco Gaudio (Cambridge, England), Gary Carr (Dublin, Ireland) and Colby Powers (Woodbridge, Va.).
“All of the incoming players are very committed to the sport, to their academics, and to improving what the graduating seniors helped establish,” said Storm assistant coach Davie Carmichael. “With our returning squad of upperclassmen, these recruits should blend well to keep our growth on the field and in the classroom consistent.”
Gaudio, an English striker, earned All-Maryland Junior College Athletic Conference team and All-Region XX Team honors as a freshman at the College of Southern Maryland. He was also named an All-American Honorable Mention in his sophomore year, leading the nation in scoring with 41 goals. He recorded 60 goals and 33 assists in his two years at CSM.
Carr, a midfielder and a product of the Irish Coláiste Íde College of Further Education Soccer Academy was named to the All-Maryland Junior College Athletic Conference team his freshman year and recorded four goals and 18 assists.
Powers, who can play in the midfield and in defense, was named to the All-Maryland Junior College Athletic Conference team and won defensive MVP as a starting central defender at CSM. He also scored four goals and helped lead the team to seven shutouts while on the back line.
 
The Storm, which finished 7-11-2 in 2009 as a Division II independent, will enter the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference in 2010.
