Edison, N.J. – Fairfield University, the defending MAAC Champion, is the top choice in the race for the 2009 MAAC women’s soccer title in a preseason poll voted on by the league’s 10 head coaches.

 

Fairfield finished with 97 points in the poll, six points ahead of 2008 regular season champion Loyola College (91).  Siena College was picked third with 82 points, and Canisius College finished in fourth place with 58 points.  Niagara University placed fifth (56), followed by Manhattan College (54), Marist College (45), Rider University (30), Iona College (26), and Saint Peter’s College (11).

 

Fairfield’s junior forward Nicole Cavallaro has been named the MAAC Preseason Player of the Year for the second consecutive year.  Cavallaro, a 2008 All-MAAC First Team selection, recorded three goals and seven assists for 13 points last season for the Stags. 

 

Joining Cavallaro at forward are Theresa Ferraina from Loyola and Ashleigh Barone from Siena.  The midfielders are Kasey Makowski and Kelly Reinwald from Canisius, Kelly Farrell from Loyola, Courtney McMahon from Manhattan, and Chiara Greco and Caitlin Long from Niagara.  The backs are anchored by Alyssa Decker from Fairfield, Heather Cooke from Loyola, Jill Beauchamp from Manhattan and Alyssa Pollock from Niagara.  Fairfield’s Kelly Boudreau rounds out the team at the goalkeeper position.
