GREENCASTLE woman Roma McLaughlin has been named as the Midfielder of the Year at the Northeast Conference postseason awards.
McLaughlin starred for the Central Connecticut women’s soccer team as they went to a 10-4-4 overall record and enter the NEC Tournament as the number one seeds.
McLaughlin has been in scintillating form with nine goals this season.
Recently, since returning to the States after a brief spell at home when she lined out for Sion Swifts, the Republic of Ireland-capped midfielder scored twice in a 3-0 win over Wagner and also netted a brace in a 5-0 success over Merrimack.
McLaughlin was the 2018 NEC Rookie of the Year and is joined by her co-captain Shauny Alterisio who was named Defensive Player of the Year and Mick D’Arcy was awarded the Coach of the Year gong.
