Springfield, Mass. - December 23, 2016 - Senior defender Jenacee Bradbury (South Portland, Maine) and junior goalkeeper Ciara Boucher (Manchester, Conn.) have been recognized for their impressive campaigns, as each earned New England Women's Intercollegiate Soccer Association (NEWISA) All-New England honors at seasons end.
Boucher, a Psychology major at Springfield College, and Bradbury, a Rehabilitation and Disability Studies major, were two of nine student-athletes selected from the New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC), as they both landed on the Third Team.
Boucher was phenomenal for the Pride down the final stretch of the season, as she anchored a defensive unit that broke the Springfield College women's soccer program record for shutouts in a single season (12). The junior, who was named the Most Outstanding Player of the ECAC Championship Tournament, finished the season with a goals-against average of 0.47.
Bradbury, another key factor to the Pride's success in 2016, was a lock down defender in her final season in maroon and white. The senior helped Springfield College to its sixth championship in the last seven seasons, claiming the ECAC Division III Championship earlier this fall. Bradbury, along with the Pride's stout defensive unit only allowed 11 goals all season.
