Hough and Viscomi continue to amass awards, named ECAC All-Stars

NORTON, Mass. - Wheaton College women's soccer seniors Emily Hough (Norwich, Vt./Hanover) and Alessia Viscomi (Newton, Mass./Newton North) were each selected Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) All-Stars, with Hough picking up her second straight such honor.  The duo was among four New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) players occupying 14 spots.

One of four forwards named, Hough led the Lyons with a team-best seven assists, team-high-tying 27 points and 10 goals.  She recorded points in 10 games while notching two game-winning tallies.  Hough finished her career ranked fourth in program history in assists (40), fifth in points (124) and tied for fifth in goals (42).

Viscomi, who was one of four defenders selected, anchored a unit that turned in 12 shutouts, posted a 0.65 goals against average and yielded one tally or fewer 21 times.  Offensively, she registered career highs of five goals, five assists and 15 points, which nearly equaled totals from her first three years combined. 

Wheaton advanced to the NCAA Tournament second round during its 11th straight tourney appearance, finishing the year ranked 22nd nationally by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA).  The Lyons went 17-4-3, including a 6-3 league mark.
