LAKE BUENA VISTA, FL. – The Monmouth University women’s soccer program, which posted an unbeaten league mark to win the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference regular season championship in its first year in the MAAC, claimed four of the league’s five major individual awards, led by Conference Coach of the Year Krissy Turner.

Announced today at the annual awards banquet at the 2013 MAAC Women’s Soccer Championship at ESPN’s Wide World of Sports, the MAAC’s individual awards, and All-MAAC first team, second team and All-Rookie team were selected by a vote of the league’s head coaches.

Turner led the Hawks to their best start ever with a 14-1-2 record overall regular season record and to the MAAC regular season championship with an 8-0-2 mark. The Hawks concluded the regular season ranked second in the NCAA in shutout percentage (0.765) and third in goals against average (0.344), and are ranked No. 6 in the Northeast Region in the most recent National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) polling.

Six Hawks were selected to the All-MAAC First Team, two were named to the All-MAAC Second Team, and two were chosen All-MAAC Rookie Team members.

Monmouth senior forward Dana Costello was named MAAC Offensive Player. Costello finished the regular season tied for third in total points, and led the league with 74 shots on goal and nine assists. She also headlines this season’s All-MAAC First Team.

Joining Costello on the All-MAAC First Team is the Goalkeeper of the Year, teammate Ashley Lewis. The senior goalie leads the MAAC and is fifth nationally in Goals Against Average, and led the MAAC with 10 regular season shutouts, and shared another one.

Also earning a berth on the All-MAAC First Team is this year’s Rookie of the Year, Monmouth freshman Alexis McTamney. McTamney finished her freshman season tied for third best in the league with nine goals, and fifth with 1.12 points per game. McTamney was a four-time MAAC “Rookie of the Week” honoree. 

Fairfield back Emma Pichl was named Defensive Player of the Year. She helped anchor the league’s second best defense as the Stags were No. 2 in Goals Against Average, 0.82, and shutouts with eight. Pichl, also an All-MAAC first team selection, was a key cog for the Stags, who finished second in the league with a 7-2-1 record.

Alexa Freguletti and Monique Goncalves of Monmouth joined Pichl as backs on the All-MAAC First team. The All-MAAC First Team midfielders included Nicole Stanton of Fairfield, Amanda Epstein of Marist and Brianne Boyle of Monmouth.

The All-MAAC First Team forwards feature the MAAC’s regular season scoring champ, Brittany Pfaff of Siena. Pfaff concluded the regular season with 30 points, including 12 goals, which tied for best in the MAAC with Ashley Small of Fairfield, also named an All-MAAC First Team forward. Costello and McTamney of Monmouth round out the All-MAAC First Team forwards.

The All-MAAC Second Team backs are Sali Ayinde of Iona, Kylee McIntosh of Marist, Danielle Kennedy of Niagara, Kim Clemmer of Monmouth and teammates Anna Grant and Tara Sobierajski of Siena. At midfield are Sofia Sanchez and Christina Tesoriero of Iona, Janie Schlauder of Manhattan, Samantha Panzner and Marissa Mertens of Marist, Jess LaVoie of Quinnipiac, Hollie Kelsh of Rider and Greta Vogel of Saint Peter’s.
