Three Ephs earn USC All-Region Accolades

WILLIAMSTOWN, MA — Three members of the Williams College women's soccer team were honored when the United Soccer Coaches organization announced its All-New England Regional squads today.

Senior back Nkem Iregbulem (Torrance, CA) and junior midfielder Victoria Laino (Charlotte, VT) were selected First Team All-New England by the USC, while senior back Sarah Kelly (Ho-Ho-Kus, NJ) was a Third Team selection.

"I am thrilled to see so many of our players be named to the All Region team to represent our program," Ephs' head coach Michelyne Pinard said. "We have an incredible team that is focused on creating a team championship experience, first and foremost, so individual accolades are not our focus, however, these three student-athletes certainly are great representatives for us and they are all very deserving of such wonderful region-wide recognition by coaches at other New England schools."

Iregbulem was also a First Team All-NESCAC selection and a key player in the Ephs' back. Williams allowed only 36 goals (1.6 per game) this season. Kelly, also a key figure in that back, was a First Team All-Region selection in 2018 and also a First Team All-American. Laino, the 2019 NESCAC Player of the Year, led the Ephs in goals this season with eight and in points with 18.
