BU women's soccer player Casares named NSCAA All-Region
Senior midfielder earns All-Northeast honors for second straight year

NSCAA All-Northeast Team

VESTAL, N.Y. - Binghamton women's soccer captain and senior midfielder Amanda Casares has been named to the NSCAA All-Northeast Region team after leading the Bearcats to a record-breaking season. She was one of 10 midfielders selected from the region (out of 45 schools). It's the second straight year Casares has received regional accolades.

From her central midfield position, Casares led the Bearcats to the America East title game and tournament runnerup honors. Binghamton (9-7-1, 6-2 AE) was regular season runnerup to Boston University after posting the best conference record in eight years of America East membership. The Bearcats then made their sixth consecutive conference tournament appearance and advanced to the championship game before falling to the Terriers.

Casares tallied two goals and one assist and provided critical leadership for a young team that sent out four freshmen and seven underclassmen in its starting lineup. She also earned first team all-conference honors as one of the best four midfielders in the America East this fall. Casares graduates as a three-time all-conference selection and two-time all-region choice.

"I'm very proud for Mandi," head coach Sarah McClellan said. "It is a well deserved honor. She was an impact player and really poured it on this year. She's had a fanstastic career as a Bearcat."
