Gallo and Murray Named to Longstreth/NFHCA Division III All-Region Team

MK Murray and Kelly Gallo Springfield, Mass. - November 18, 2013 - Kelly Gallo (Westfield, Mass.) and MK Murray (Killingworth, Conn.) were named to the Longstreth/National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA) Division III All-New England East Region Team. The seniors were selected to the second-team.

The all-region honor was Gallo's fourth-straight. She was selected first-team last season, while this is her third second-team selection. Gallo was once again a key figure for the Pride offensively, finishing second in goals scored this season with nine and also tacking on an assist.

For Murray, it was her second-straight all-region honor. The senior was at the heart of the Springfield College defense throughout the year, starting in 18 games for the Pride. She was also a tremendous weapon on offense, contributing seven goals and seven assists during the year.

The postseason accolades just keep poruing in, as both seniors were awarded all-conference first team honors by the New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) last week and were also selected to the Front Rush/NFHCA Division III Senior All-Star Game that will be held on Saturday, November 23rd at the Virginia Beach Sportsplex in Virginia Beach.

The Pride ended the season 6-12 overall and 4-4 in conference play.
