Senior Jasmine Rodriguez (Clinton, CT) was named to the All-New England first team while classmate Meghan Reichelt (Selden, NY) earned a nod to the second team as the duo closed out their collegiate soccer careers this fall. The New England Women's Intercollegiate Soccer Association announced the All-New England selections in a press release this past weekend. The Pioneers were just one of five teams to put a player on the first team as Boston College filled six spaces on the top All-New England squad.
Rodriguez also earned a spot on the All-Northeast Conference first team in 2010, a feat that the defender also accomplished in 2009. Rodriguez was the anchor for a strong Pioneer backline that surrendered just 1.21 goals per game last season. In her career the five-foot defender played in 63 games in a Pioneer uniform, including two seasons alongside her sister Janice.
Reichelt recorded seven clean sheets in the Pioneers 19 games during her senior campaign. The 5-7 goalkeeper finishes her career with 344 total saves, compiling a .754 save percentage. In her final two years Reichelt posted goals against averages of 0.99 and 1.22. She rounds out her collegiate stat line with 20 total wins and 19 shutouts.
In the pair's senior year Sacred Heart finished with an 8-6-5 overall record to mark the program's first winning season since 2003.
