CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - University at Albany women's soccer seniors Shayla Bergeron and Chelsea DeVerna were named to the America East Conference First Team, which were voted on by the conference coaches. This is Bergeron's second time named to an all-conference squad (previously on the second team in 2011). DeVerna is the first Great Dane to have been named to the all-conference team all four years at UAlbany.
Bergeron, a Hudson, N.H. native, had her best season to date as a Great Dane. During her senior campaign, she tallied 11 goals and six assists for a total of 28 points. Her goals and points total were second best in the conference, while her assist totals were tied-for second. The senior forward tallied the program's first two hat tricks, one against UMBC and one against UNC-Asheville. She was named America East Player of the Week twice earlier this season.
DeVerna, a Setauket, N.Y. native, also had her best season of her career at UAlbany. As a senior, she tallied a total of seven goals, one of which was a game-winner against Binghamton on October 4. This is the senior midfielder's fourth time being selected to an all-conference time and was named the America East's Rookie of the Year in 2009.
