Clark, O'Rourke Named All-New England By NEWISA

Nashua, N.H. – Clark University women's soccer players Joanna Clark (Windham, Mass.) and Megan O'Rourke (Somerset, Mass.) have been named to the New England Women's Intercollegiate Soccer Association (NEWISA) All-New England team it was announced on Monday.

For O'Rourke, the third-team selection puts a cap on an outstanding senior campaign in which she was named second-team All-NEWMAC for the second season in a row. She was one of only two Clark players to start all 17 games this season and she finished second on the team in goals (3) and points (6).

Clark, meanwhile, earns her second straight first-team All-New England selection, becoming the first Clark women's soccer player to earn the honor in back-to-back seasons since Katie Brothers was selected in four straight seasons from 1998-2001. Earlier this year she became one of two four-time all-conference honorees in women's soccer school history with her selection this season.

Since joining the team in 2007, she started all 71 games in goal for the Cougars, helping Clark advance to the NEWMAC Tournament on three separate occasions. In 2009, she posted eight shutouts en route to a first-team all-conference nod and All-New England honors. During her final season, Clark registered a 1.22 goals against average and totaled five shutouts, giving her 25 blankings during her illustrious career.
