SALEM, Mass. (November 22, 2008) – Three seniors on the women's soccer team will be participating in the New England Women's Intercollegiate Soccer Association Senior Bowl that will be held at Salem State College on December 7, 2008 at 11 a.m. Stephanie Labbe, Brittany Tegeler and Elizabeth Eng were all chosen with Eng tied among Midfielders as a top-vote getter.
UConn was the only team to have three seniors named to play. Boston University has two players in the Bowl and one named as an alternate.
Two of the three seniors also received postseason awards in the BIG EAST. Labbe was named to the BIG EAST first team as well as being named BIG EAST Goalkeeper of the Year and Tegeler garnered BIG EAST Second Team honors.
As part of the participation of Salem State, Coach Nicolle Wood and the Salem State SAAC will set up and collect donations of canned goods and other non-perishable items to be donated to a local shelter to help feed families during this holiday season.
"Although there has never been an admission fee," said Coach Wood, "I think we can all agree that this would be a very worthwhile endeavor to support and I hope you will join us and Salem State in honoring the selected players and taking part in the effort that day."
