Henrik Ronnevig, USC Upstate

Ronnevig was a key part of the USC Upstate men’s soccer dynasty of the early and mid-90s that reached the NCAA National Championship game.  One of only seven men’s soccer players to be named All-Conference all four years he played, he was inducted into the USC Upstate Hall of Fame in 2006.

Ronnevig scored 54 goals in his career which is still sixth on the PBC’s all-time list 16 years following his career.  He also remains the PBC’s all-time leader in assists with 69 and is second in the PBC book in career points.  He also holds the PBC record for most matches started in a career with 82.

In 1998, he had 22 assists which remains the single-season PBC record.  That year the Spartans advanced to the NCAA National Championship Game and a 23-1-0 team record which still stands as the most wins by a PBC team in a single season.  In 1997 he led NCAA Division II in assists.

A two-time first-team All-America selection, he was named All-Region four times and the PBC Player of the Year in 1998 and 1999.  He won three PBC regular-season championships and two PBC Tournament titles in his tenure.  USC Upstate was 68-13-4 in his four years.

A four-time PBC Presidential Honor Roll selection, he was named the USC Upstate Male Student-Athlete of the Year in 2000.  He graduated from USC Upstate in 2001 and returned to his native Norway where he has two sons.
