Gibson Named NEWMAC Women's Soccer Coach of the Year; Four Others Named All-Conference

2010 NEWMAC Women's Soccer All-Conference Honorees Springfield, Mass. -- November 9, 2010 -- John Gibson of Springfield College has been named the 2010 New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference women's soccer coach of the year. In addition, four of his players have received all-conference accolades, including first-teamers Brittany Collins and Courtney Price, and second-teamers Gina Calabrese and Jackie Moscardelli.

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.

Springfield is now preparing for the NCAA Tournament, its fourth in the last six years. The Pride will play at The College of New Jersey in Trenton where it will take on Ithaca Saturday in a first-round game. The other two teams in that pod are The College of New Jersey and Christopher Newport.
