Men’s Soccer Goalkeeper Kellen Groover Named All-American


West Windsor, N.J. -- Mercer County Community College’s (MCCC’s) men’s soccer goalkeeper Kellen Groover (Roebling, NJ) has been selected as a National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Division I All-American. The sophomore was named a Third Team All-American, marking the first time in three years that a Mercer men’s soccer player has earned All-American status.   

Groover finished the season with the top save percentage in the country, at .891 percent.  In 20 games, Groover had 114 saves, allowed just 14 goals, and had six shutouts.  The Vikings ended the year with an 18-0-3 record and were ranked eighth in the country.

Groover becomes the 84th NJCAA All-American in the storied history of MCCC men’s soccer and the first Mercer goalkeeper to earn this honor since Keith Engelhardt in 1992.

The 2015 coaching staff included Widmarc Dalce, who completed his fourth season as head coach, and assistant coaches Scott Loesser, John Pietrowski and Mark Pratico.
