THE

LONG ISLAND CONNECTION

In his 32-year history with Connecticut women’s soccer, Len Tsantiris has had 16 natives of New York’s Long Island play for the Huskies. Not only have these 16 competed as members of the team, they have each had a major impact on the program. Twelve have earned postseason honors and six of the Long Island products have been named All-Americans. All-Americans hailing from Long Island include three-time All-American Sara Whalen and Mary-Frances Monroe, former assistant coach and 1991, 1992, and 1993 All-American Karen Ferguson, 1991 All-American Cathy Cambria, 1988 and 1990 All-American Beth Grecco, and 1987, 1988, and 1989 All-American Kim Prutting. The Huskies had their seventh different Long Island athlete named All-American in 2007 when Brittany Taylor earned the honor. The Long Island tradition continued in 2008 with the addition of Michelle Reynolds and Heather Kasper and again in 2010 when Devin Prendergast joined the Huskies.
