Vaeth '16 to Sewanee

Four-year soccer starter will continue his career on the college level.

The Class of 2016 college athletic commitment list continues to add length.

Soccer standout Ben Vaeth '16 will play for Sewanee, he recently decided. Vaeth was a four-year starter for the Saints and excelled in the midfield as a senior.

The Richmond Strikers club-team veteran put up 11 goals and 11 assists in 2015 en route to all-Prep League and second-team all-state VISAA honors.

"After soccer season ended for high school I was really bummed and I realized I didn't want to give [soccer] up right away," said Vaeth, who rejoined his travel soccer team after the season, where Sewanee was impressed with his play. "Sewanee called me up, had me go on a visit and it kind of just all fell into place."

Vaeth considered a walk-on spot at James Madison, but felt Sewanee was the best fit. He'll joint Christian Alcorn '13 (Williams), Kameron Holloway '15 (Randolph-Macon), North Carolina commit Drew Romig '16 and Myles Brown '15 (Notre Dame) as Saints who are playing soccer at the next level.
