ALBANY, N.Y. – For the second straight season, UAlbany defender Caroline Kopp earned a place on the 2016 National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) Division I Women’s All-Northeast Region Third Team.

Last year, Kopp became the first ever UAlbany women’s soccer player to be placed on an NSCAA All-Region team.  In 2015, she was placed on the third team as well.

Kopp is one of 33 Division I players to be selected to the NSCAA All-Region Teams and was just one of two America East players on the squads as well.

The sophomore defender started all 20 games this season, helping UAlbany to its second straight America East Tournament title and first ever regular season league title.  The America East All-Conference First Team player tied for an America East-high six assists, adding a goal from corner back.

Regions for the NSCAA are divided into conferences.  The Northeast region includes the America East, the Big East, the AAC and the NEC.
