For the second consecutive season senior defender Jasmine Rodriguez (Clinton, CT) earned a spot on the All-Northeast Conference first team. Rodriguez was the anchor for a strong Pioneer backline that surrendered just 1.21 goals per game in 2010. The Pioneers also ranked second in the NEC by tallying eight shutouts this season. Sacred Heart finished 2010 with an 8-6-5 overall record to mark the program's first winning season since 2003.
Rodriguez's speed and toughness also earned first team All-NEC accolades in 2009. "This is a great honor for a hard-working individual. Jasmine has been the backbone of our defense for two years and we will definitely miss her next season," said head coach Kim Banner.
