2019 All-NESCAC Team

Pooley is one of 12 players on the first team two years after she made the all-conference second team. Burrall, who received all-NESCAC honors for the first time, is one of 12 players on the second team and one of just two goalies appearing on the entire squad.

Pooley is a midfielder and was named the NESCAC Player of the Week on March 18. She led the Continentals with 44 points and tied for the team lead with 23 goals. She is fourth in the conference with 21 assists, second with 37 caused turnovers, seventh with 37 ground balls and eighth with 54 draw controls. She finished her 64-game career (60 starts) with 93 goals and 42 assists for 135 points, 117 ground balls, 155 draw controls and 114 caused turnovers.

Burrall leads the NESCAC with 152 saves and is sixth with a .492 save percentage. She logged nearly 3,000 minutes in goal during a 63-game career that included 59 starts and finished fourth on the program's all-time list with 438 career saves. Burrall made 15 stops in a 7-6 setback against nationally ranked No. 15 William Smith College on April 17 and turned away a season-high 17 shots in a narrow 6-5 loss against No. 8 Wesleyan University three days later.
