Morency Named to 2nd Team; Rewrites the Record Books
Boston, MA - Sophomore goalkeeper Deanna Morency was awarded All-American Mideast Conference 2nd Team honors; it was announced today by the Commissioner's office.
Despite playing only eight games in goal for Falcons due to injury, Morency was able to set a school record with 140 saves on the season. Deanna finished the regular season ranked 12th in NAIA Division I in total saves.
This is the first time a Fisher College student-athlete has received All-Conference honors in the American Mideast Conference. Before this season Fisher College had competed in the Sunrise Conference. Fisher College was also selected as the Fair Play Team Award recipient.
Lindsay Miller, who helped lead Daemen to its first-ever conference women's soccer title, has been selected the AMC Player of the Year for 2011.
