Landmark Announces Men’s Soccer All-Decade Team

TOWSON, Md. - The 2016-17 season marks the 10th year anniversary for the Landmark Conference. To help celebrate, the Landmark is featuring individuals that have stood out over the past 10 years by naming All-Decade Teams in each sport.

On Oct. 27, the conference announced the members of the Men's Soccer All-Decade Team. Susquehanna boasted two athletes on the list: Brandon Kates '13 and Jim Robertiello '11.

Kates was a member of the Susquehanna University men's soccer team from 2009-2012, where he was named to the All-Conference Team three times, including to the First Team in 2010 and 2012. He was a member of the 2012 Landmark Championship Team that advanced to the NCAA Sweet 16 and earned D3Soccer.com All-America Third-Team recognition following that season.  Kates was also a player on the 2013 conference championship squad. He played in 61 games for SU as defender and served as team captain in 2012.

Robertiello was a member of the Susquehanna University men's soccer team from 2007-2010, where he was named to the All-Conference team four times, including to the first team in 2008. Robertiello finished his career with 29 goals and 14 assists. His 29 goals rank him second in both the SU and Landmark record books, while his 14 assists are seventh in the Landmark career record book and third all-time at Susquehanna.

Athletes that were named All-Conference First Team a minimum of two times, and/or were named Landmark Player of the Year, during their career will be nominated automatically, and each team had the opportunity to nominate additional individuals for consideration. The All-Decade team was selected by the membership and will be announced prior to the conference championship of each sport.
