EASTON, Mass. (January 6, 2014) – Stonehill College women's soccer senior goalkeeper Amy Wheaton (Dartmouth, Mass./Dartmouth) has been named to the NSCAA (National Soccer Coaches Association of America) College Division Women's Scholar All-East Region Third Team, which includes student-athletes from both Division II and III programs.
Wheaton, an Interdisciplinary Health Science major with a 3.65 cumulative grade point average, posted a 1.49 goals against average and a .774 save percentage this season for Stonehill. The Skyhawks finished 5-8-1 in the Northeast-10 and 5-11-2 overall, narrowly missing out on the Northeast-10 Championship. Wheaton recorded two shutouts in 2013, coming in back to back games on September 21st against Le Moyne College and September 24th against Franklin Pierce University.
The senior captain kept the Skyhawks in nearly every match this season, as she allowed one goal or fewer in 11 of Stonehill's 17 contests in 2013. Wheaton made a season-best nine saves in Stonehill's 2-1 overtime victory against Southern Connecticut State University on October 19th, and she stopped eight shots on three separate occasions. Wheaton helped Stonehill get off to a 3-1-1 start in conference play by allowing only three goals in the team's first five NE-10 contests.
Since her arrival in Easton, Wheaton has excelled both on the field and in the classroom. In addition to her numerous athletic achievements, the goalkeeper has been named to the Northeast-10 Commissioner's Honor Roll all six of her semesters as a Skyhawk, and to the Stonehill Athletic Director's Honor Roll on four occasions.
