Farina earns United Soccer Coaches All-Region Third Team honors

MANCHESTER, N.H. – Junior Caly Farina (Southbury, Conn.) of the Saint Anselm College women's soccer team was named to the United Soccer Coaches All-East Region Third Team, announced on Tuesday.


It is the first time a Hawks student-athlete received this honor since Kaitlin Oldfield '13 was also selected to the third team following the 2012 season.

Farina, who was a Northeast-10 Conference First-Team selection and named to the Division II Conference Commissioner's Association All-East Region Second Team earlier in November, had a career-year during the 2018 season. She played in 16 games, scoring a team-high 10 goals while adding three assists for a team-high 23 points. All of those numbers were career-highs. She became the first student-athlete since Oldfield in 2012 to reach double-digit goal scoring totals in one season.

Farina registered a point in 10 games this year, including a five-point day at Bentley and a four-point performance against assumption, both being 3-2 victories for Saint Anselm. She also had a pair of three-game point streaks this year and was one of three players with two game-winning goals. In her career, Farina has 39 points (15-9=39) in 50 games played.

Farina helped guide the Hawks to their first postseason appearance since 2013 and was part of one of the most successful teams in program history. Saint Anselm reached the nine conference win plateau for the first time in program history.
