BOSTON, Mass.—After the most successful season in program history, UMass Boston and Krista Ledin (Bridgewater, Mass.) can check off one final first. The sophomore was named a D3Soccer.com Third Team All-American Thursday afternoon, becoming the first player to be honored as an All-American in program history.
Ledin led the Little East Conference in scoring for the second consecutive season, breaking almost every single-season offensive mark in the Beacons record books. The sophomore forward finished with 26 goals, 12 assists and 64 points-all program records, while helping the Beacons to their first ever NCAA Tournament appearance.
She also became only the second player in the 18-year history of the program to reach 100 career points and set a new program mark for assists in a game with four.
Ledin is one of just eight sophomores to be selected as an All-American, with the rest of the 33-player pool made up of juniors and seniors. She is also one of just three New England players to make the cut.
