Three Women's Soccer Players Headed To NEWISA Senior Bowl

Three Women's Soccer Players Headed To NEWISA Senior Bowl Springfield, Mass. - December 1, 2010 - The senior trio of Brittany Collins, Gina Calabrese, and Courtney Price will all have the chance to play together one last time as they were selected to play in the New England Women's Intercollegiate Soccer Association (NEWISA) Senior Bowl on Saturday at Merrimack College at 2:30 p.m.

The Senior Bowl consists of two teams with players from NCAA Divisions I, II and III. 20 Division III players were selected to play, including Springfield's trio, who were among nine New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) players selected for the contest.

Calabrese has been a rock in the defensive third for the Pride during her career at Springfield. The East Longmeadow, Mass. native started all 20 games this season for a defensive unit that allowed just 13 goals all year. She also tacked on a pair of assists as she was a threat all season to come forward and attack out of the back.

A product of Vernon, Conn., Collins led Springfield in scoring this season as she pumped home nine goals and tacked on an assist for 19 points. Collins, a NEWMAC All-Conference First Team selection recorded three game-winning goals in her senior campaign.

Price once again anchored the Springfield defense, who finished the season with 10 shutouts. A physical defender from Enfield, Conn., Price added a goal and two assists this year as she took home NEWMAC All-Conference First Team honors for the second-consecutive season.

These three players played a major role in the Pride winning its second NEWMAC Championship in the past three years and its third overall. Springfield rattled off a 15-5 record this year and advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the fourth time in six years under head coach John Gibson.
