An anchor on defense for Wheaton’s 2003 NCAA Tournament Final Four team, in addition to two other NCAA tournament teams, Greenslit’s talents did not go unnoticed. A three-time NSCAA All-American and two-time NEWMAC Men’s Soccer Player of the Year, Greenslit is the only athlete, male or female, to earn three Wheaton College Athlete of the Year honors in school history. The defender also collected three NSCAA All-Regional First-Team laurels to go with three NEWMAC All-Conference honors in leading the men to two NEWMAC championships and three NEWMAC regular-season titles. Greenslit also spent three seasons on the men’s basketball team, where he ranks seventh in a season in three-point field goal percentage (.439) and was a part of Wheaton’s back-to-back ECAC New England championship teams in 2005 and 2006.
