Chabala Garners NSCAA Third-Team All-America Honors

Dec. 13, 2005

SEATTLE - Postseason accolades continue to roll in for Washington senior Mike Chabala as the Husky midfielder was named to the 2005 NSCAA/adidas Men's Division I All-America Third-Team, the National Soccer Coaches Association of America announced yesterday.

Chabala's honor marks the third-straight year and the ninth overall that a Washington men's soccer player has earned NSCAA All-America acclaim.

A native of Fresno, Calif., Chabala was one of six Pac-10 players to earn a first, second or third-team All-America selection. Joining him on the third-team was San Diego State goalkeeper Tally Hall from Gig Harbor, Wash.

Chabala's All-America honor comes on the heels of his first-team All-Region selection announced last week. Both are career firsts for Chabala, who also earned back-to-back All-Pac-10 second-team selections in 2005 and 2004.

Chabala led the Huskies to an overall record of 10-7-2 in 2005, ranking third on the team with eight points. He scored two goals and tallied a team-high four assists. He finished his career at Washington with 26 career points on five goals and 16 assists. A three-year starter and two-year team captain for the Huskies, Chabala helped Washington make its longest postseason run in school history, as UW advanced as far as the NCAA Sweet 16 in 2003.

Chabala will participate in the 2006 Major League Soccer Player Combine, Jan. 12-15 at the Home Depot Center in Los Angeles, Calif.
