DiNatale Named NSCAA First Team All-New England

Vicky DiNatale Kansas City, Kan. - December 4, 2013 - After leading the Springfield College women’s soccer team to its second-straight conference title, Vicky DiNatale (Weymouth, Mass.) earned National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) All New England honors.

The senior was tabbed First Team All-Region for the second-consecutive season by the NSCAA.

The honors keep pouring in for DiNatale, who was also selected to represent Springfield College in the 2013 New England Women's Intercollegiate Soccer Association (NEWISA) Senior Bowl. She's earned several other honors this season, including her third All-Conference selection in as many years. This year, she was honored with her second-straight first team selection.

Led by DiNatale, the Pride defense allowed just 17 goals all season. The senior contributed on both sides of the field, anchoring the dominant defense and tallying two goals on the offensive side for the Pride. In her four-year career, DiNatale tallied eight goals, including two game-winners. She played in every game the past three years and played in 74 games through four years.

DiNatale helped lead the Pride to its second-straight NEWMAC title this season, beating top-seeded MIT on penalty kicks in the conference championship. Springfield finished the year with a record of 13-5-4 (6-1-3, NEWMAC), making its fourth-straight NCAA tournament appearance.
