Senior Brian Pirkle

SALEM, Va. -- Three members of the Washington and Lee men's soccer team were honored as the Old Dominion Athletic Conference announced its' all-conference team on Tuesday afternoon.

Senior defender Peter Miller (Towson, Md./Baltimore Lutheran) and senior midfielder Brian Pirkle (Lexington, Va./Woodberry Forest) were both named to the first team, while senior midfielder Justin Mygatt (Marietta, Ga./Woodward Academy) was named to the honorable mention squad.

A Third Team All-South Region honoree last season, Pirkle finished his career ranked in the Top 10 all-time at W&L in goals (23), assists (14) and points (60).

Mygatt was named All-ODAC for the first time during his career. Like Miller, Mygatt was a team captain in 2004, starting 15 games and finishing second on the team in scoring with 13 points on five goals and three assists. He finished his career with 32 points on 13 goals and six assists.
