NOTABLESRookie keeper that will fight for the starting position between the pipes ... Decent in controlling the ball in the air ... Good athletic ability and has very good hands.

2010 Enjoyed a breakout rookie campaign in which the keeper played in 23 contests, starting 20 in between the pipes for the Beacons while playing in 2,063:12 minutes on the year to set a new single-season record ... Was named the Little East Conference (LEC) Goalkeeper of the Week and Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Division III New England Co-Defensive Player of the Week for her play in net during the week of October 24-30 in which the rookie did not surrender a goal in 180 minutes of action to earn a pair of shutout victories ... Set a new UMass Boston record for consecutive scoreless minutes in goal, registering 514:39 minutes over six matches without allowing a marker ... Notched a new program record for both single-season and career shutouts, registering eight during her inaugural season with the Beacons ... Picked up her first career shutout making two saves on September 25 in a 1-0 win over LEC rival UMass Dartmouth ... Recorded a season-high 14 saves in a 3-3 tie vs. Simmons College on September 12 ... From October 23 through November 2, pitched four consecutive shutouts en route to the scoreless minutes record, notching wins over Plymouth State on Oct. 23 (1-0, six saves), Framingham State on Oct. 26 (2-0, six saves), Rhode Island College on Oct. 30 (2-0, five saves and Southern Maine on Nov. 2 in the opening round of the Little East Conference Tournament (1-0, four saves) ... Made 10 saves on November 7 in Little East Conference Championship game vs. Western Connecticut State ... Ended the campaign with a strong effort vs. Endicott College, making 11 saves in the ECAC Semifinals match ... Finished the season with 137 saves to rank second in the LEC and ninth all-time among single-season leaders in UMB annals ... Posted a 1.27 goals against average and .825 save percentage, both are program records for keepers having played at least 2,000 minutes while also ranking second-best among single-season totals ... Wrapped up a brilliant freshman year with a total of 14 wins to set not only the new single-season record but also the career wins mark at UMass Boston.
