CAPE COD, Mass. - Forward Theresa Ferraina and back Heather Cooke were both named ECAC Second-Team All-Stars, the conference announced today. Boston College's Victoria DiMartino and Jillian Mastroianni were selected as the Offensive and Defensive Player of the Year, respectively, and Northeastern's Devin Petta was named the Rookie of the Year.
A center back for the Greyhounds this season, Cooke was named a first-team All-MAAC selection and helped Loyola hold opponents to just 1.17 goals per game. The California, Md., native, started and played in a Loyola single-season 23 games this season, recording a goal and two assists for four points. Cooke finished her four-year career at Loyola with four goals and three assists for 11 points.
The Greyhounds went 15-5-3 overall in the 2009 season, including a perfect 9-0-0 in MAAC regular season play, won the MAAC regular season and tournament titles and earned their seventh bid to the NCAA College Cup. The 15 victories were the second-most in program history and included a school-record 14-game unbeaten streak, which spanned over two months.
