She scored 16 goals (four game-winners) and added one assist for a total 33 points, while tallying two hat-tricks and four multiple goal games. She was always in the right place to connect on crosses and deflections. Her 16 goals amount to the most goals scored in a season by a Farmingdale player since we joined the NCAA in 2000.
Freshman midfielder Amanda Biondi (West Islip, NY) was also named First Team All-Skyline. She finished third on the team in scoring with three goals and five assists.

Amanda helped improve the offensive and defensive team stats, as the teams' "Goals For" improved by 11 and the "Goals Against" decreased by 15 since last season.
Freshman goalkeeper Kimberly Sontag (Lynbrook, NY) received Second Team All-Skyline honors.
