Kristin also was selected the MVP of the GNAC Tournament after leading the Golden Bears to the conference title and an appearance in the NCAA Division III Championship.
She was the team MVP as a freshman and junior, and recipient of the Norm Merrill 12th Player Award her senior year.
Kristin compiled 72 points (18 goals, 36 assists) in 79 matches from her midfield position.
She has served as an assistant coach for the past eight seasons helping the Golden Bears make the Commonwealth Coast Conference (CCC) playoffs each year.
Kristin earned her bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a master’s degree at Springfield College in 2009.
She presently is the Operations Manager at New England Financial in East Longmeadow, MA.
