Four Members of the Men's Soccer Team Earn NEWMAC All-Conference Honors

BABSON PARK, Mass. – November 7, 2007 – The Springfield College men’s soccer team had four players named to the New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference All-Conference team which was announced on Tuesday afternoon.

Adrian Schippers was tabbed a NEWMAC All-Conference First Team selection while teammates Tony Distasio, John Plourd, and Michael Kilmartin were all honored with second-team honors.

A native of Ashby, Mass., Schippers was one of the Pride’s main offensive weapons in just his second year at Springfield. Last season’s NEWMAC Rookie of the Year recorded nine goals on the season, including three game-winning strikes. Schippers missed a good portion of the season with an injury, but was still honored for his outstanding play on the field.

Distasio, who hails from Burlington, Conn., concluded his senior campaign with second-team honors. The crafty forward led the team with 23 points off 10 goals and three assists as he appeared in all 19 games for the Pride.

A native of Southampton, Mass., Plourd was a constant threat for the Pride all season with his blazing speed down the flanks. The sophomore forward registered a pair of goals and assists this season en route to six points.

Anchoring the Pride’s defense this season was Kilmartin in his final year at Springfield. The Waterford, N.Y. product was a stalwart on defense for the Pride as he appeared in all 19 games for the Pride.

The Pride finished the season with a 9-8-2 record before falling to Babson in the NEWMAC Championship semifinals.
