Moscardelli and Mullady Headline NEWMAC Women's Lacrosse Awards Babson Park, Mass. - May 4, 2011 - Springfield College's Jackie Moscardelli was named the New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC ) Women's Lacrosse Player of the Year, while head coach Kristen Mullady was tabbed the Women's Lacrosse Coach of the Year. Moscardelli also joined five of her teammates on the all-conference team.

Joining Moscardelli on the first team was Meagan Dobson, Allie Davis, and Megan O'Brien, while both Kelly Foley and Rebecca DiSisto took home second-team honors.

Moscardelli took home Player of the Year honors after a tremendous junior campaign for the Pride. The midfielder led Springfield with 48 goals, the second-highest single season total in program history. Her 61 points ranked second on the team, and was the fourth most in a season at Springfield. She also led the Pride with 40 ground balls and added 19 caused turnovers, also second team. For her efforts, she was also named to the NEWMAC All-Conference First Team, and was previously named to the NEWMAC All-Conference Second Team in women's soccer this fall.

In her second season at the helm of the Pride, Mullady led Springfield to an 11-6 record before bowing out in the NEWMAC Tournament Championship game. The Pride captured the conference regular season crown for the first time since 2006 after rattling off a 6-0 record against league foes.

Dobson had a sensational senior season as she led Springfield with 70 points off 28 goals and 42 assists. Her 42 assists shattered the previous program record for a season total, while her 70 points is the third highest mark in program history for a season. Dobson scored at least two points in every game during her year, including nine games with at least five points.

Davis shined in her sophomore season as she netted 32 goals and ranked third on the team with 36 points. Scoring at least two goals in nine games, Davis used her tremendous speed to get past defenders and to the cage with ease all season. She also added 26 ground balls on the season for the Pride.

O'Brien earns all-conference honors for the second-straight season, after earning second-team accolades last year. As a member of its defensive unit, O'Brien started 16 games for Springfield and tallied six goals and four helpers. O'Brien added 24 ground balls and 13 caused turnovers and proved to be major factor in Springfield's clearing game.

In her final season in Maroon and White, DiSisto anchored Springfield's defense that owned a 9.55 goals against average. Her 30 ground balls were second-best on the team, and she added 16 caused turnovers, the third-highest total for Springfield. She also chipped in two goals, five assists, and six draw controls.
