Pair of Blue Devils Named All-New England Following 2010 Season

Seniors Beth Lloyd and Abby Graham were each named to the NEWISA All-New England Second Team, it was recently announced. Both players were named to the All-Conference First Team following the 2010 season in which Central finished 9-9-2 overall and 5-3-2 in NEC action. Central qualified for the NEC Tournament for the ninth consecutive season, the longest active streak in the league.

Lloyd, who also made her second straight appearance on the All-Conference First Team, was named All-New England for the first time. She was one of the top scorers in the league, ranking second in the NEC with 12 goals, four assists and 28 points. She finished her career with 27 goals to go along with 16 assists. Her 70 career points are fourth all-time at CCSU, as is her career goal total. After scoring just four goals in her first two seasons Lloyd hit her stride, booting 23 in the past two.

Graham's career at Central was spent on the other side of the field. Graham led a solid CCSU defense this season as the Blue Devils only gave up five goals in the last nine games, lowering their goals allowed average from 2.2 to 0.55. Her selection to the All-New England team, as well as her All-Conference, were the first of her career.
