Columbia's Washington is soccer All-American for Radford B

December 20, 1991

Dante Washington, a Columbia native and a member of the U.S. National team attempting to qualify for the 1992 Olympics, was a first-team selection on the All-American soccer squad named by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America.

Washington, an All-Metro selection during his days at Oakland Mills High, had 16 goals and 14 assists during his junior season at Radford (Va.) University. It was actually his least productive season as a collegian, as he had 27 goals and 22 assists as a freshman. Washington's career totals are 69 goals and 55 assists.

NCAA champion Virginia placed freshman midfielder Claudio Reyna on the first team, and junior defender Erik Imler on the second team. Imler went to Bowie High.

Washington, Reyna and Imler were joined on the South Atlantic Region all-star team by Radford midfielder Jeff Majewski, a senior out of Centennial High.

The South Atlantic second team included Loyola defender Tom Donahue, who was the Player of the Year in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference; midfielder Ed McCue, who led Towson State to its third straight East Coast Conference title; midfielder Jason Dieter, an Archbishop Curley grad who led UMBC to the ECC regular-season title, its first in Division I; and forward Cliff Carpenter, a junior who helped Navy to regular-season honors in the Patriot League.
