TEAM OF THE YEAR
PLAYER OF THE YEAR
Greenwich, Sr., Forward
The all-time leading scorer in program history, Colligan finished her brilliant career with 150 points. The senior forward tied her single-season record with 20 goals this year and led the Cardinals to a second straight FCIAC championship. Colligan, who has signed to play at N.C. State, is a three-time first-team All-FCIAC and All-State selection and was named to the National Soccer Coaches Association of America All-America Team.
New Canaan, Jr., Midfielder
An All-New England and first-team All-FCIAC choice, the junior midfielder was a force all over the field and her right foot was a major asset for the Rams on set pieces.
New Canaan, Sr., Goalkeeper
The first-team All-FCIAC goalie ended her stellar career with eight shutouts, including two in the state tournament as the Rams reached the CIAC Class LL quarterfinals.
Darien, Sr., Midfielder
A four-year starter, Bravo laves the Blue Wave as a two-year All-State and All-FCIAC selection.
Amity, Sr., Defender
A two-time All-State and All-SCC choice, Brown led the Spartans to a 13-3-3 record.

One of only four players in the state to be named to the NSCAA All-American Team, Christo scored totaled nearly 40 goals the last two seasons. A two-time All-State and All-FCIAC selection.
Norwalk, Sr., Defender
A four-year starter, the senior sweeper leaves the Bears as a three-time All-State and All-FCIAC selection. Will play at Fairfield University.
Westhill, Sr., Defender
A two-time All-FCIAC selection, Eriksen spearheaded a Vikings defense that allowed just six goals all season.
St. Joseph, So., Forward
