BU women's soccer lands three on America East all-conference teams
Raske, Casares and Montoya selected to second team; Raske is also all-rookie

VESTAL, N.Y. - On the eve of the conference tournament, three Binghamton women's soccer players earned recognition from the America East as the all-conference teams were released on Wednesday. Junior captains Amanda Casares and Nicole Montoya and redshirt freshman Dani Raske were all chosen for the all-conference second team.

Casares, BU's gifted center midfielder, was picked for the second straight season. She has two goals and five assists, and is the team's primary playmaker.

Montoya, an America East all-rookie selection two seasons ago, is a steady center back. She has anchored a defense that has produced six shutouts in 2008.

Raske has been the team's top scorer this fall. She has seven goals and five assists, and is dangerous on free kicks and corner kicks. She has three game-winning goals and ranks third in the America East in goals and points per game (1.19). In addition to her second-team honors, Raske was named to the All-Rookie Team. She was one of just three freshmen among 22 players chosen by a vote of the conference coaches.

The Bearcats (7-8-1) will travel to Durham, N.H. to face No. 3 New Hampshire in a quarterfinal game Thursday afternoon. The postseason tournament appearance is BU's fifth straight. The program boasts a 3-1-3 mark in its previous four years of America East tournament play.
