Soccer Player Smiles Cited By LEC Third Time!

sports-smiles_action300_9186.jpgFor the third time in seven weeks this season, senior defender Aaron Smiles of Bedford, MA, was named Defensive Player-of-the-Week in the Little East Conference.  The latest recognition is for the week ending Oct. 23; Smiles was similarly honored in the first weekly report of the season Sept. 12 and in the fifth weekly report Oct. 10.

A first-team All-New England Region and All-LEC selection, Smiles anchored a defense which shut out both the U.S. Coast Guard and the University of Southern Maine, giving the Warriors their tenth and 11th shutouts of the season at the time and breaking the previous team record of ten, set in 1969 and equaled four more times.
