PRINCETON, N.J. (11/20/13) - Four members of the Princeton men's soccer team were named first-team All-Ivy League, more players than any other team in the league, it was announced by the league office today, Nov. 20, more than any other team in the league.

Junior Cameron Porter was a unanimous selection and is joined by sophomore Thomas Sanner as two of the first-team forwards. Junior midfielder Myles McGinley and sphomore defender Josh Miller also claimed first-team honors. Senior defender Billy McGuinness earned second-team honors and freshman Brian Costa was named honorable mention.

This is the fifth time Princeton has had four or more players earn first-team honors. The Tigers had a record of five in 1989, which included current head coach Jim Barlow, and had four in 1958, 1999 and 2009.

Porter led the Ivy League in scoring overall with 21 points on a league-best nine goals and three assists. He also led the league in scoring in conference games with 13 points on six goals and one assist. Porter is the only player in the league to be named Player of the Week twice this season, earning the honors on Sept. 30 and Oct. 7. Porter converted two of two penalty kicks, against Rutgers and Harvard. Highlighting his non-conference play was a six-point game against Florida International as he had a hand in all four goals, scoring twice and assisting twice. He tallied the game-winning goal in the team's Ivy opener at Dartmouth and scored goals against Cornell and Penn. In the final game he scored twice, with the game winner, in Princeton's 3-2 win over Yale. Porter was named second-team All-Ivy last year as a sophomore.

Not far behind Porter in scoring production was Sanner. The 2012 Ivy League Rookie of the Year was fourth in the league in points wtih 15 on seven goals and one assist. The Tigers' second-leading scorer tallied goals against Dartmouth, Columbia, Drexel, Georgetown, Rutgers and scored twice against FIU. He also assisted on the game winner against Seton Hall.

McGinley earns his first league honor of his career. Playing in 14 games with 13 starts, McGinley had one assist, in Princeton's 2-1 win over Cornell.

As a sophomore, Miller earned a starting role as a center back with 17 starting nods. McGuinness played in all 17 games at center back and made 16 starts as the Tigers' co-captain He had two assists, against FIU and Harvard. The pair helped to hold teams to just 9.9 shots per game and 4.1 shots on goal per game.

Costa played in all 17 games as a freshman and made 15 starts. He had his first career assist in the Tiger's 3-2 win over Yale.

Princeton finished third in the Ivy League with a 4-2-1 record and was 7-9-1 overall.
