November 8, 2019 (Emmitsburg, Md.) – Mount St. Mary's women's soccer's top defender Maria Buonomo (Churchville, Pa.) has been named Second Team All-Northeast Conference, announced last night by the conference office. The Pennsylvania native earns Second Team All-NEC honors for the second straight year.
Buonomo started all 15 games on defense for the Mountaineers this season. The junior defender helped the Mount hold opponents to a 1.96 goals against average and registered two shutouts during the 2019 campaign. Buonomo has now started 48 games while recording two goals on eight shots during her first three seasons at the Mount.
The All-NEC Second Team selection will look to continue her dominant and aggressive defensive play next year as a senior and help the Mountaineers return to the Northeast Conference tournament in 2020.
