Krista Ledin Named ECAC New England Offensive Player of the Year
CENTERVILLE, Mass.—After setting a new offensive standard for UMass Boston and Little East Conference women's soccer, Krista Ledin (Bridgewater, Mass.) was named the ECAC Division III New England Offensive Player of the Year Thursday afternoon.
It is the second postseason award for Ledin in two days, as she was named a National Soccer Coaches of American Association (NSCAA) Second Team All-Region honoree Wednesday afternoon. Ledin was also named the Little East Conference Offensive Player of the Year and a Little East Conference First Team honoree earlier this fall.
This marks the second straight season the ECAC has recognized Ledin with a major award. In 2011, Ledin was named the ECAC All-New England Rookie of the Year, after setting a new program record with 23 goals and 50 points.
She easily surpassed those totals in 2012, finishing the season with 26 goals, 12 assists and 64 points. All three totals set new UMass Boston program-records and led the Little East Conference.
In addition, Ledin became only the second player in program history to reach the 100-point mark on October 25 when she set a new program-record with four assists in a single game, and tied the UMass Boston record with eight points in a win over Framingham State.
In just two seasons, Ledin has come close to rewriting the entire UMass Boston record book. She has compiled 49 goals and 114 points to put her within three goals and two points of former teammate Kristin Mulry's ('11) school records.
