DaGraca Named NEWISA Third Team All-Region

STANDISH, Maine - Senior forward Haley DaGraca (Saco, Maine) has garnered New England Women's Intercollegiate Soccer Association (NEWISA) Division III Third Team All-New England honors for the third year in a row.

The awards to continue to pile up for the Monks' all-time leading scorer, as earlier this fall DaGraca earned Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) Offensive Player of the Year, First Team All-GNAC, GNAC Tournament Most Valuable Player, and United Soccer Coaches First Team All-New England honors. She was also selected to play in the NEWISA Senior Bowl and the Medical Biology major claimed Google Cloud Academic All-District, United Soccer Coaches First Team Academic All-Region, and United Soccer Coaches Third Team Scholar All-America accolades.

In total, DaGraca has collected 35 accolades during her collegiate career.

She finished her career ranked sixth in points and goals among all active NCAA DIII Women's Soccer players.
