Farina named to NEWISA All-New England First Team

MANCHESTER, N.H. – Junior Caly Farina (Southbury, Conn.) of the Saint Anselm College women's soccer program was selected to the New England Women's Intercollegiate Soccer Association (NEWISA) All-New England First Team, announced on Thursday.


Farina, who was a Northeast-10 Conference First-Team selection, a Division II Conference Commissioner's Association All-East Region Second Team honoree and a Third Team selection to the United Soccer Coaches All-East Region roster in November, had a career-year during the 2018 season. She posted a team and career-high 10 goals and 23 points in 16 games while adding three assists, which were tied for the team lead. She became the first student-athlete since Kaitlin Oldfield '13 in 2012 to reach double-digit goal scoring totals in one season.

Farina registered a point in 10 games this year, including a five-point day at Bentley and a four-point performance against assumption, both being 3-2 victories for Saint Anselm. She also had a pair of three-game point streaks this year and was one of three players with two game-winning goals. In her career, Farina has 39 points (15-9=39) in 50 games played.

Farina helped guide the Hawks to their first postseason appearance since 2013 and were part of one of the most successful teams in program history. Saint Anselm reached the nine conference win plateau for the first time in program history.
