Orr and Bjarnason Earn Men's Soccer District Academic Honors

AUSTIN, Texas -- A pair of Catawba men’s soccer players have earned Academic All-District honors by CoSIDA.  Senior midfielder Ian Orr (Mooresville, N.C./Lake Norman) and junior defender Breki Bjarnason (Reykjavik, Iceland) were selected from NCAA II schools from the Peach Belt, Conference Carolinas and the South Atlantic Conference.

Orr has a 3.79 GPA while majoring in business.  The senior is tied for second on the team this year with five goals with three of those going for game winners.  One came Friday in a win over LMU that put the Indians in the top four of the league standings for the first time since 2005.

Orr has also added a pair of assists on the season.  Bjarnason is a psychology major with a 3.96 GPA.  He has started 14 matches this season and helped the defense to a pair of shutouts.
