Special to the OBSERVER
Fredonia State graduate student Reilly Condidorio was named to the Second Team National Soccer Coaches Association of America All American for the second year in a row.
Condidorio and junior Katie Kleine also received NSCAA All-East Region recognition - Condidorio on the First Team, Kleine on the Second Team. It is the fourth time since 2005 two Blue Devils have been chosen all-region in the same season.
The reigning Fredonia State Female Athlete of the Year, Condidorio finished the season with nine goals - four of them to win games - and 22 points to add to her school records in both categories. Her four-season totals are 43 goals and 104 points. Her 14 goals and 32 points last season are single-year team bests and resulted in her becoming the first All-American in Fredonia State women's soccer history.
Condidorio is a four-time First Team All SUNYAC player and was the only player from the 2012 All SUNYAC Team chosen to the NSCAA All-American Team.
Kleine also had nine goals - three game-winners - and added seven assists to lead the Blue Devils in overall scoring with 25 points. She was also chosen First Team All SUNYAC this fall and is receving her first NSCAA recognition, yet it is her second time on all-regional list. The Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association named Kleine to its Empire Region First Team last spring.
Condidorio and Kleine join Danielle Bleecker and Linsay Kulas (2005), Bleecker and Becky Scroger (2007) and Condidorio and Lauren Heilweil (2009) as all-region choices from the same team.
The Blue Devils (12-4-3) tied a team record for wins in a season and finished third in the SUNYAC (6-2-1).
