Three Women's Soccer Players Named to NSCAA Regional Team
Dec. 8, 2011
Chestnut Hill, MA - Three Boston College women's soccer players - Kristen Mewis, Jillian Mastroianni and Alaina Beyar - have been named to the 2011 All-Southeast Region team by the National Coaches Association of America as released on Dec. 7.
Mewis earned first team honors for the second consecutive year, while Mastroianni has made third team twice and second team once. Beyar is a first time selection by the NSCAA.
Mewis, who is currently training with the US National team in California until Jan. 21, led the Eagles in scoring this past season with eight goals and six assists for 22 points. A native of Hanson, MA, Mewis was a Hermann Trophy Preseason Watch List selection at the start of the season and an All-ACC first team selection. Mewis is now 12th on the all-time goal scored list (23 goals) and fourth on the assists list (26).
Mastroianni made the NSCAA Regional third team as a freshman and first team as a sophomore. A native of Durham, CT, Mastroianni will leave BC as the all-time leader in shutouts, as well as second in NCAA history with 44. She also owns the program record for most wins as she went 61-23-8. Mastroianni also started a record 92 straight games.
Beyar, a native of Staten Island, NY, developed into the Eagles' most steady defender over the last three years. The senior, who came to the Heights as a speedy forward, moved for the sake of the team in her sophomore season. Beyar was an All-ACC second team selection this season. She finished her career with three goals and six assists for 12 career points, but none were bigger than the game-tying goal in the Eagles first win over UNC in the 2010 season.
