Crowder sophomore goalkeeper Daniel Ost, a native of Santa Rosa, Brazil, earned all-Region 16 second team honors as a freshman.

As a sophomore, Ost moved up to first team and served as Crowder’s lone all-Region representation during a 10-6-1 season for the Roughriders that saw them reach the region semifinals and give No. 1-ranked in NJCAA Division I St. Louis a whale of a 2-1 match.

Ost’s numbers included 73 saves and seven shutouts in 17 games in the net.

“Daniel has been the heart of our defense for the past two years,” veteran Crowder head coach Brad Smith said in a media release. “He has been among the national leaders in many statistical categories and a large portion of our success can be attributed to his play.”

Ost currently ranks tied for 44th this season in total saves, 26th in goals against average (1.02), 32nd in save percentage (.802), and tied for sixth in shutouts.

This past season marked Crowder’s 10th anniversary of having a men’s soccer program.

Ost nearly matched his own single-season shutout record from his first season, falling one short of eight. His 15 career shutouts are the new golden standard for Crowder keepers.

The ‘Riders have reached the region semifinals five straight season and their 10 wins this season are tied for the third-best in school history with the 10-7-1 2011 team.

Crowder won 10 matches in back-to-back seasons for the first time since 2010-11 and the 25 wins the past two seasons eclipse the 21 matches won by the 2010 and 2011 teams.

Smith, whose career extends back into the 1970s, reached 385 career wins and 92 of them have been at Crowder.
