Worcester, Mass. – Clark University netminder Connor Maguire (Dunstable, Mass.) has been named to the New England Women's And Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) men's soccer second-team all-conference it was announced on Tuesday afternoon by the league's Executive Director, Patrick Summers.
The award for Maguire comes following a vote of the league's seven head coaches.
Maguire helped the Scarlet and White to one of their best seasons in program history while playing the best statistical season of his three-year career.
The junior backstop finished second in the conference in save percentage (.810), third in total saves (64), fifth in goals allowed (15) and sixth in goals against average (1.14).
Earlier this season he was named the league's defensive player of the week as he helped the Cougars to their best in school history (9-0-0). Along the way, Maguire recorded three shutout victories (Roger Williams, Coast Guard Academy and Emerson) and had six saves or more six separate times.
One of his best performances of the year came in a dramatic double-overtime loss at Babson where he made several spectacular saves among his nine stops in the 1-0 loss. Maguire also made a season-high ten stops in the Cougars' 3-2 overtime loss to eventual league champion Springfield College during the NEWMAC Tournament Semifinals.
A biochemistry and molecular biology major who also excels in the classroom, Maguire earned his first spot on the NEWMAC Academic All-Conference team earlier this month and is a two-time Clark University Dean's List honoree.
Clark wrapped up its 2016 season with a 14-5 overall record and their first trip to the postseason since 2009.
