Burr signs off as All-New England

NEW HAVEN — For a second straight season, Southern Connecticut State University soccer player Kelsey Burr of Wallingford has been named to the 2022 NCAA Division II All-New England Team.

The team was selected by Division II coaches in the New England Women's Intercollegiate Soccer Association. Players were first nominated, then voted upon by the coaches.

Burr earned a spot on the Second Team. The Sheehan grad led the Owls with five goals and 13 points in 2022. Her five goals were tied for 10th in the Northeast-10 Conference and her 13 points were 11th.

A grad student, Burr scored in her final game in the Northeast-10 Tournament quarterfinals against Saint Anselm. She scored 12 goals and assisted on six for her SCUS career.
