First-Team All-ODAC honorees Hunter Brown, Kent Henry, and Ian Levin

A school-record of 10 Tigers were named to the All-ODAC team on Thursday, including three on the first team.

Ian Levin, Hunter Brown, and Kent Henry each earned first-team honors for the second consecutive year.

Levin led the Tigers in points (74), goals (43), and assists (31). His 74 points rank as the fifth most in school history, and he is the only Tiger to post 60+ points in three seasons or 70+ in two or more seasons. He completed his career ranking second in points (240), third in assists (91), and sixth in goals (149).

Brown posted 56 points on 37 goals and 19 assists while being named to the ODAC All-Tournament Team. He tied for the team lead in man-up tallies with five. Brown ended his four-year career ranked fifth in points (207), second in midfielder points and just one shy of tying the school record, second in assists (103), and 12th in goals (104). He is one of only two players in H-SC history with 100+ assists and is the only player to contribute 100+ goals and 100+ assists.

Henry once again proved to be one of the top defensemen not only in the ODAC but also the region and the nation. He started all 18 games, racking up 17 caused turnovers, 34 ground balls, one goal, and one assist while often guarding an All-ODAC or All-American caliber offensive player in many outings. 

Making the second team included Chandler Shaheen, Wilson Booth, and Mitch Renfrow while third-team honors went to Connor Pool, John Burke, Marshall Via, and Canevin Wallace. 

Shaheen was once again one of the top goal-scoring midfielders in the league and the country as he posted 36 points on 32 goals and four assists. He totaled a season-high four goals at Bridgewater and had a hat trick against Roanoke College. After four years, he ranks 18th at H-SC in points (138), eighth in midfielder points, and ninth in goals (118). 

Booth stepped up as the primary face-off specialist for the Tigers this year and was dominant. He went 171-294 (58.2%) at the X with 106 ground balls, one goal, and four assists. In arguably the finest game of his career, he went 18-24 with 12 ground balls and an assist in a 14-13 win over Lynchburg College. His 106 ground balls rank as the 10th most in a single season at Hampden-Sydney and places sixth on the career leaderboard with 245.

Renfrow was tabbed Second-Team All-ODAC for the second time in his career. He started all 18 games, boasting a goals against average of 9.77 along with 151 saves. He stopped a career-high 18 shots against #1 Salisbury and followed with a 15-save performance against Lynchburg College. 

Pool contributed 27 points on 18 goals and nine assists. He scored a season-high four goals at Randolph-Macon and scored one of the biggest goals of his career when he found the back of the net with 26 seconds remaining to beat Roanoke College. He ranks 25th in school history in points (122) and 18th in goals (91) 

Burke had a breakout year as a junior as he moved from attack to first-line midfield. He totaled 46 points on 24 goals and 22 assists while being named to the ODAC All-Tournament team. He came on particularly strong in the last three games of the year as he scored four goals and two assists against Guilford and following with consecutive three-goal, two-assist games against Lynchburg and Roanoke College. He assisted on the game-winning goal against Roanoke in the regular season and scored the game-winning goal against Lynchburg. 

Via stepped up into a starting defensemen role as a senior and showed out as one of the top takeaway defensemen in the league, ranking fourth in the ODAC with 26 caused turnovers and also fourth in the league for ground balls (56) by non-faceoff specialists. His 56 ground balls rank second on the squad. 

Wallace emerged as one of the top cover defensemen and one of the premier freshmen in the league this spring. The strong and athletic defenseman was often guarding the opposition's most athletic player and helped shut out or limit many All-ODAC caliber players. He started all 18 games, racking up 11 caused turnovers and 26 ground balls.
