Hilt and Tregear Earn All-Region Honors from NSCAA/adidas
Central Connecticut had a pair of players earn NSCAA/adidas All-Northeast region honors following a 12-7-4 season which culminated in the team's fifth NCAA Tournament appearance in seven seasons. Junior Karise Hilt and sophomore Clio Tregear were both recognized by NSCAA/adidas. Hilt earned second team honors, while Tregear selected to the third team.
Hilt played in 22 games for the Blue Devils, helping anchor a record-setting defense. CCSU posted a program-best 12 shutouts this season. A first team All-Northeast Conference selection, Hilt had three goals and an assist this season. The Leominster, MA native was one of just two non-goalkeepers to earn NEC Defensive Player of the Week honors in 2008. She was also a second team all-conference selection in 2006.
Tregear, a captain for this year's team, appeared in and started all 23 Central Connecticut contests. Also a first team All-Northeast Conference honoree, Tregear finished third on the team in goals and points. She scored six times and had four assists for a total of 19 points. Tregear was a second team All-NEC pick in 2007.
The Blue Devils ended their season with an NCAA Tournament first round loss at Boston College. It followed CCSU's fifth NEC Championship in seven seasons. Jess McCavanagh was the last player to earn NSCAA/adidas all-region honors. She was a third team selection in 2006.
