HILTON — Russell Sage College’s men’s soccer team, which finished the 2021 season as the Empire 8 runner-up, had three players honored with the announcement of the All-Tournament Team. The Gators went 5-3 on the year and took home the program’s second Empire 8 runner-up trophy.

Named to the All-Tournament Team for RSC were senior forward Jeaneste Pierre (Newburgh Free Academy), junior midfielder Christian Vaaulstuen (Lillestrom, Norway), and senior forward Griffin Goodemote (Broadalbin-Perth).

Goodemote, who was a starter in every match this year added three points on a goal and an assist. He wraps his stellar career having earned Gator of the Year status as a junior in 2019 and ranks No. 11 in career goals at RSC with 8, including two game-winners in 53 matches played with 20 career points.
