            GORHAM, Maine – Senior defender Cara Radino (Franklin, N.J./Wallkill Valley) of the University of Southern Maine women's soccer team has been named to the All-Little East Conference second team that was announced Tuesday by the conference office following voting by the head coaches.

            Radino is the 32nd USM player to receive all-conference honors since the Little East Conference added women's soccer to its list of sports in 1990.

            A three-year starter on the back line for the Huskies, Radino served the team as a co-captain this fall.  A tenacious defender, she started all 17 matches and helped the Huskies qualify for the LEC Women's Soccer Championship Tournament.

            "I'm very happy for (Radino).  She has been an incredible leader and teammate.  She has been defensive standout for us the past three years, whether she was playing on the outside or as our sweeper (this year).  I'm very pleased that she received this recognition from the coaches in the conference," commented head coach Lisa Petruccelli.

            During her three seasons with the Huskies, Radino played in 46 matches, including making 43 starts.

            Southern Maine finished the season 3-14-0 overall and 2-5-0 in the conference.
