Dec. 26, 2012
WESTFIELD – Westfield State University senior forwards Kayley Miller and Brittanie McGregor were selected to the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NCSAA) NCAA Division III Women's Soccer All-New England Region Teams.

Miller was a second-team selection and McGregor was a fourth-team honoree. The Ludlow natives led the Owls to a sensational 18-1-1 record and their fourth MASCAC championship and NCAA Tournament appearance in the past five years.

Miller, the 2012 MASCAC player of the year, set school records for goals (20) and points (49) in a season and career points (119).

She ranked fourth nationally with eight game-winning goals this season.

It was a third straight year that Miller was a first-team all-conference selection; she transferred to Westfield from Division I Monmouth (N.J.) University following her freshman year.

McGregor was first-team all-conference for the second consecutive season. McGregor scored 35 points, the fifth best total in school history, and ranks 10th on the Owls' all-time scoring list with 76 points.

McGregor tied a school record and ranked eighth nationally with 15 assists this season.

WNE lacrosse earns national ranking

BALTIMORE – The Western New England University men's lacrosse team will play its first game of 2013 with a No. 18 national ranking, according to Inside Lacrosse (IL) magazine in its 2013 Face-Off Yearbook edition.

Western New England, which is projected to return six starters among 39 lettermen from last season's 13-5 team that swept the Commonwealth Coast Conference regular-season (7-0) and tournament titles, opens up against NCAA Semifinalist Stevenson (March 2) on the road. The Golden Bears are the only CCC team listed in the national rankings.

Besides the top-ranked Mustangs, Western New England also plays at two other final four teams from last season in No. 4 Tufts (March 24) and No. 2 SUNY Cortland (April 4).

In fact, almost half of the Golden Bears' 15-game regular season schedule is comprised of nationally ranked teams that appear in the IL preseason poll.
