Boston, Mass. - February 28, 2017 - Springfield College's Ava Adamopoulos (Ludlow, Mass.) has been recognized for her outstanding senior season, as she has garnered New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) All-Conference honors, announced on Tuesday morning.

This marks the first All-Conference nod for Adamopoulos, a 6-foot-2 center for the Pride. A local product out of Ludlow, Mass., Adamopoulos has had a dominant senior campaign, and  has averaged 16.0 points, 8.8 rebounds, 1.1 assists, 1.0 blocks and 0.2 steals in just 25.1 minutes a game. For her efforts, she was selected as a NEWMAC First Team All-Conference student-athlete.

Adamopoulos posted eight double doubles on the year, and led the Pride to an overall record of 18-8. On January 9, Adamopoulos was recognized by the NEWMAC, New England Women's Basketball Association (NEWBA) and Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference (ECAC) after averaging 19.5 points, 7.0 rebounds, and 2.5 blocks in a pair of wins over Clark and MIT. 

Adamopoulos, along with the rest of the Springfield College women's basketball team, will host SUNY Cobleskill in the ECAC Division III Women's Basketball Tournament First Round on Wednesday, March 1 at 7 p.m. in Blake Arena.

Additionally, senior guard Lexi Windwer (Milton, Mass.) was named to the NEWMAC All-Sportsmanship Team. New to the conference this year, the award is intended to recognize one student-athlete from each team, in every sport that best demonstrates the ideals of the NEWMAC and its Code of Conduct, regardless of his/her overall performance or statistics for the season.
