Thompson receives repeat Northeast-10 Second-Team soccer honor at Stonehill EASTON, Mass. – Lincoln's Camryn Thompson, who is a sophomore midfielder/ striker on the Stonehill College women's soccer team, was one of eight players on the Skyhawks that was recently named to the Northeast-10's All-Conference teams, as she landed a spot among the Second-Team selec- tions for the second year in a row. Thompson, who graduated from Lincoln High in 2018 after earning multiple First- Team All-State honors with the school's girls' soccer team, entered last week with eight goals and an assist for 17 points. Last year, she was named the NE-10 Rookie of the Year and Stonehill Athletics Rookie of the Year after scoring nine goals, adding six assists, and tying the school record for rookies in points with 24. She was also honored on the NEWISA All-New England First Team. Stonehill made its third appearance in four years in the NE-10 Tournament, as well as earned a berth in the NCAA Division II East Regionals, with one of the best records in the program's history, an 11-3-4 overall record and an 8-1-4 conference mark. Not only was DeFusco's time seven seconds faster than her win- ning time in the previous week's New England meet at Deerfield Park, but she also topped the run- ner-up finisher by 17 seconds.
