Consiglio, Feitl Named to NSCAA All-Midwest Region Teams

Ursuline College sophomore forward Vanessa Consiglio and junior midfielder Anna Feitl each picked up another honor as both were named to the National Soccer Coaches Association of America/Continental Tire NCAA Division II Women’s All-Midwest Region teams. Consiglio was a second team selection while Feitl was named to the region’s third team.

Players from the Great Lakes Valley Conference (GLVC), Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) and Great Midwest Athletic Conference (G-MAC) were eligible, an area that extends through nine states.

Consiglio, who was also named to the Daktronics Inc., Midwest Region Second Team, scored 12 goals and added nine assists to finish with a team-high 33 points. She was second on the club in goals, just one behind junior Paige Rowan, and her nine assists tied Feitl for the team lead.

After finishing the season second in the G-MAC in points, third in goals and tied for third in assists, Consiglio earned first team all-conference honors.

Nationally, she tied for 22nd in the country in assists which helped her rank 32nd in Division II with 1.57 points per game. The 12 goals also put Consiglio in the top-55 in the nation.

Feitl started all 21 matches and was credited with nine assists to tie Consiglio for the team lead and third in the conference along with that spot in the top-25 nationally. Much of what she did in terms of controlling the midfield line went unheralded in the box score but Ursuline often ran the attack through her as she was the team’s most technical player.

The Holy Name High School graduate will enter her final season with 17 career assists, just three shy of tying the school record.

Butta’s Blog: It has begun!

It has begun!

The Ursuline College swimming and diving team is in the water and working hard! After mapping out a running course on campus and sweating for two weeks, we started in the water last Monday at Gilmour Academy.

So far, spirits have been high as we are excited to start training and gain some strength and endurance in the pool. Unfortunately, this is all done at 6:00 a.m.! Until Hathaway Brown School finishes its renovations, the Arrows are at GA each morning at 6:00 before class and on campus doing dry-land training at 3:30 p.m.

Although the yardage is not topping the charts just yet, our practices have consisted of breath control, stroke technique drills and basically shaking off the dust from summer break. Looking at the weeks ahead, we plan on continuing to train as hard as we can to prepare ourselves for our first meet which is just four weeks away!

Coach Katz has been doing his best to give us every opportunity to work and believe me, we are being creative in our training! It is easy to get frustrated with the traveling, early mornings and schedule changes but we are not letting it consume us. We have high hopes this is going to make us a better, stronger and more competitive team. From what we hear, our new weight room in Daley will be available this week so that is yet another resource to add.

I can’t forget classes, though! Exams have also kicked in and time management skills have truly been put to the test. On our team, we have found the upperclassmen giving the newcomers some pointers in relation to professors, study habits and time management, as being a student-athlete can be difficult at times. The swim team has some extremely talented and smart girls and I am very proud of all of them.

So, we will continue to jump in that cold water at 6:00 a.m. and do what we love: work towards our goals both in the water and in the classroom. It’s going to be quite a year, everyone!

Can’t wait to keep you all updated and brag about the URSULINE COLLEGE SWIMMING AND DIVING TEAM!

Go Arrows!
