CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Seniors Andrea Park (Irvine, Calif.) and Emily Kuo (Chicago, Ill.) were named to the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) New England Division III All-Star team on Thursday. Park was one of five defenders and Kuo was one of four forwards selected. Only three other MIT women's soccer players have been named to the team, the first of which being Lauren Hernley in 2009.
A pivotal part of the MIT defense for the past four years, Park was one of only five Engineers who played and started all 21 games this season. Her two goals were scored ten minutes apart against Husson (10/09), leading MIT to a 5-0 win. She was a NEWMAC first team All-Conference honoree and a first-time CoSIDA Academic All-District nominee.
This week, Kuo was named to the NSCAA All-America third team and All-New England first team all within a span of a few days.
