Wheaton College Norton, Massachusetts

Three earn soccer honors

Women’s soccer team twins Cassey and Jordan Muse, along with Lauren Corigliano, were named to the New England Women’s Intercollegiate Soccer Association (NEWISA) All-New England Team.

Jordan Muse ’13 became an All-American soccer player this past year, and her sister Cassey Muse ’13 has been a four-year all-conference player and is only the ninth player in the history of women’s soccer at Wheaton to reach the 100-point milestone in women’s soccer. Also, they were both team captains and both made the Dean’s List during the fall semester.

This year, Cassey Muse picked up her third career NEWISA All-New England Team honor with a selection to the first team. She earned second team laurels in 2009 and third team accolades in 2011. She ranked second on Wheaton’s team in scoring this season with 28 points on 10 goals and eight assists. In the NEWMAC, she finished second overall in points, tied for fourth in goals, tied for second in assists and tied for first in game-winning markers. She currently ranks seventh in program history in points (112), fourth in goals (45), and is tied for eighth all time in games played (93).

Jordan Muse, who was chosen for the All-New England third team, has also enjoyed a banner year. She earned four postseason awards to close out her career. Earlier this fall, she was named to the NEWMAC All-League first team and earned a spot on the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) New England Division III All-Star Team. In addition, she was selected to the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) All-New England first team and was also named an NSCAA All-American. She guided the Lyons backline to three separate NCAA Division III top-50 defensive rankings, as Wheaton finished the year ranked 25th overall in won-lost-tied percentage (.808), 49th in goals against average (.691) and 50th in shutout percentage (.538).

The third All-New England team member, Corigliano, earned several honors, including a NEWMAC All-League first team selection, an ECAC Division III All-Star Team nod, and an NSCAA All-New England Team selection. She led the NEWMAC in several offensive categories, including goals (13), points (33), game-winning goals (4) and games started (24).
