Stonehill Women's Soccer NE10 Awards History




EASTON, Mass. (November 8, 2019) – The No. 19 Stonehill College women's soccer team saw eight members named to the All-Conference teams, as half were named to the first team, as announced by the Northeast-10 Conference office today.

One senior, two juniors, and one freshman highlight the octet, as all but one receive their first NE10 All-Conference first team recognition in their career.  Junior center back Tess Erwin is a repeat from last years' first team, while senior center back Isabella Collentro, junior forward Kayla Henry, and freshman midfielder Emma Slade earn their first-career accolades.

Both Erwin and Collentro have been keys to the Skyhawks defense this season averaging 0.95 goals against. The two center backs have also contributed to the four shutouts this season and two upsets against No. 18 Franklin Pierce University in September where Stonehill won 4-1 and No. 21 Southern New Hampshire University as they defeat the Penmen 5-2 in early October.

Collentro has also chipped in a goal and an assist this season, bringing her career total to three goals and three assists. The senior scored the second goal in a 2-0 victory over NE10 foe Bentley University and chipped in an assist in a 6-3 win over Assumption College.

Last year, Erwin was selected to the NEWISA All-New England first team, the United Soccer Coaches All-East Region second team, and the NE10 All-Conference first team as the Skyhawks averaged 1.25 goals against.

Henry earns her first-career NE10 award, as she has combined for nine goals and five assists for 23 points in 13 games played this season. Her 23 points this season leads the team and puts her sixth in the Conference, while her nine goals places her fifth and her five assists puts her seventh. Over her career, she has now totaled 18 goals and 12 assists for 48 total points. The forward's offensive drive has just about doubled the Skyhawks goals per game average from last season. At one point this season, Henry registered at least one point in six games, totaling 16 points with seven goals and three assists. She currently posts a career high in goals and points, while the junior was also successful in her first-career penalty kick.

Stonehill's performance on the field has also been successful from Slade's dominate ball handling in the midfield. Along with her defensive skills, the freshman has contributed four goals this season. She posted her first-career goal in a 5-1 win over Dominican to kick off the Skyhawks six-game win streak and she followed that up with two tallies dominating against the Penmen. Slade then picked up a goal in a 3-1 victory over out of region competition, Lynn University. Slade has played and started in 14 games for the Skyhawks and sits sixth on the team in goals. The freshman was also the lone Skyhawk to be named to the All-Rookie Team this year.





Junior Alex Giardina and sophomore Camryn Thompson, both big parts of the Skyhawks' offense were named to the second team. Giardina who is second on the team with 20 points earns her first big honor from the Conference as she is tied for first on the team with nine goals with Henry and has also chipped in two assists. Thus far, the junior has totaled 16 goals and five assists for 37 points in her three years in the Purple & White. She has also chipped in three game-winning goals and her first-career goal off a penalty kick in a 4-0 shutout over Saint Anselm College.

Thompson, who is third on the team with 17 points, earns her second All-Conference second team honor as she has totaled eight goals, one shy to match her career high, and one assist this season. Across the NE10, Thompson is eighth in goals scored and 10th in points. Last year, Thompson was named NE10 Rookie of the Year and Stonehill Athletics Rookie of the Year after tying the school record for rookies in points with 24. She was also honored on the NEWISA All-New England first team following an impressive rookie career.

Seniors Kaitlin Brown and Nicole Geraghty rounded out the Skyhawks' honorees as they were named to the third time. Both have been recognized previously, as Brown earned first team recognition last year and Geraghty was named to the All-Rookie team her freshman year.

Brown has averaged 0.95 goals against, giving up 18 goals from opponents for her lowest in her career. The senior has tallied 80 saves in the 18 games started and played in accumulating a record of 11-3-4. Brown has also registered four shutouts for a career total of 14 in her three years in net. Her goals against average is third in the NE10, while her save percentage is fifth and her 18 goals given up is seventh. The senior was named Goalkeeper of the Year and was named to the NE10 All-Conference first team last season, as well as the NE10 Academic All-Conference team, the United Soccer Coaches Scholar All-East Region second team, the United Soccer Coaches All-East Region third team, the NEWISA All-New England first team, and the D2CCA All-East Region second team.

Geraghty, who has seen a career high in points this season, earned her second NE10 All-Conference honor as she has totaled six goals and four assists for 16 total points. The senior has now totaled 15 goals and 11 assists for 41 points in her four years with the Purple & White. The forward put in two goals in a 5-1 victory over Dominican for the third time in her career.

Stonehill will be making its third appearance in four years in the NE10 Tournament and has one of the best records in program history, an 11-3-4 overall record and an 8-1-4 Conference mark. The Skyhawks has tallied four shutouts and in the month of September, the 2019 squad went on a six-win run. Stonehill, as the second seed, will face Southern Connecticut State University, as the seventh seed, on Sunday, November 10 on Skyhawk Field with a 1:00 p.m. start time for a NE10 Quarterfinal matchup.
