Saint Francis U is searching for its first NEC women’s soccer title since Tesa McKibben was in uniform.
The Red Flash are one of four teams who are contesting the NEC Tournament this weekend in Teaneck, NJ and this #TBT honors one of their all-time greats.
McKibben helped her team to a trio of regular season titles during her time Loretto and capped her career with the 2013 NEC Tournament crown.
Having gone on to play professionally in Germany, McKibben is arguably one of the most-accomplished players in NCAA Division I history.
She won the NEC Player of the Year award an unprecedented four times!
In fact, she is the only NCAA Division I four-time Conference Player of the Year in history. Not even legends such as Mia Hamm (North Carolina, ACC, 1990, 1992-93), Christie Welsh (Penn State, Big 10, 1999-01), Mandy Clemens (Santa Clara, WCC, 1997-99), Brittany Timko (Nebraska, Big 12, 2004-06) and Sarah Hagen (UW-Milwaukee, Horizon 2009-11), all of whom were three-time Player of the Year honorees.
Prior to Friday’s NEC Semifinal, McKibben took to twitter to shout out Saint Francis…
good luck to all my SFUWS loves in the nec semis today! youre there for a reason- dont be satisfied until that ring is on your finger! ❤️💍⚡️
