For Gibson, it is the fourth time he has been so honored. He was also named NEWMAC Coach of the Year in 2000, 2005, and 2008. This year's team won its first outright NEWMAC regular-season crown. And just last Sunday, it won the NEWMAC post-season title for the second time in three years, and for the third time in six years.
A senior forward from Vernon, Conn., Collins was named NEWMAC first team all-conference. Price, a senior defender who represents SC's last line of defense, was also a first team all-conference performer. She hails from nearby Enfield, Conn.
Named to the all-conference second team were Calabrese, a senior defender from nearby East Longmeadow, Mass., and Moscardelli, a junior midfielder from Weymouth, Mass. Calabrese and Moscardelli are the team's co-captains.
