Josh Hale graduated from Emory & Henry in 2002 having played soccer all four of his years at Emory & Henry. He was goalkeeper for the team from 1998-2001. Soccer was still a new sport at E&H during those years, so it seems significant to point out that during Josh’s tenure on the pitch, the team’s record went from 2 wins and 14 losses and 1 tie to 7 wins and 9 losses and 2 ties.
Now, fifteen years down the road, Josh still holds college records in soccer. He is the All-Time E&H leader in career goalkeeper saves – with 603 overall. He also holds a record for most saves in a season with 160.
He is second in the Emory & Henry record books for number of saves in a single match with 20. And he is also second in the E&H records for number of wins and shutouts in a season.
Josh is also the All-Time ODAC leader in career goalkeeping saves and he ranks 10th in NCAA Division III history.
Josh Hale is the first Emory & Henry Soccer Athlete to be inducted into the E&H Sports Hall of Fame.
