Senior midfielder Kelsey Wilson of Gorham was named to the All-America East second team by the league’s coaches on Wednesday and she will lead the Black Bears into their America East quarterfinal at Hartford tonight at 6.

Maine is 7-8 overall and earned the sixth seed with a 3-5 league record.

Third-seeded Hartford is 7-8-3 and 4-2-2, respectively.

Maine beat Hartford 1-0 on Seniors Day in Orono on Oct. 17 on a goal by senior striker Hannah Breton of Greenville.

Wilson was one of two Black Bears who earned honors along with back Lisa Bijman, who was selected to the All-Rookie team.

Wilson had seven goals and two assists to lead the Bears in scoring. Bijman had a pair of goals and helped anchor a Maine defense that allowed just 1.33 goals per game.

Wilson was also one of four Maine players who was named to the conference’s All-Academic team.

The Maine captain has maintained a 3.83 GPA in biological engineering.

Breton, sophomore back Kaitlyn MacIsaac and sophomore goalkeeper Meagan Price-Leibenzeder were the other All-Academic choices.

Breton has a 3.80 GPA in civil engineering, Price-Leibenzeder has a 3.6 GPA in social work and MacIsaac has a 3.56 GPA in biology.

Wilson was followed in team scoring by Courtney Harnais (3 goals) and Carolyne Nellis (2 goals, 2 assists). Price-Leibenzeder has posted a 1.25 goals-against average and a .741 save percentage.

Hartford is led by All-America East first team striker Amelia Pereira (5 & 5) and second team selections Caroline Dixon, a midfielder, and Michele DeSanti, a defender. Breeanna Robinson has five goals and an assist, and goalkeeper Lauren Brodeur has a 1.14 GAA and a .790 save percentage.
