Danbury, Conn. - March 27, 2019 - The Springfield College women's basketball team had a pair of student-athletes recognized for their impressive 2018-19 seasons, as Gracie Restituyo (Barrington, R.I.) and Alex Goslin (South Windsor, Conn.) earned Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Women's Basketball All-Star honors, announced late last week.
Restituyo was among seven other women from Division III women's basketball to haul in honorable mention honors, while Goslin was one of five student-athletes that earned Second Team honors. Springfield College was one of three institutions to have multiple student-athletes honored.
Restituyo, a senior Sports Biology major at Springfield College, was a force down low for the Pride in the 2018-19 season. The Barrington, R.I. native averaged 11.4 points and 9.6 rebounds, averaging 26.5 minutes in all 28 games for the maroon and white. Restituyo recorded 12 double doubles on the season, including seven-consecutive double doubles, resulting in a 6-1 record for Springfield College in that span. Against Emerson on January 26, Restituyo came within two rebounds of the program's single-season record as she hauled in 22 rebounds in a 52-43 victory over the Lions.
Goslin, a Math and Secondary Education major at Springfield College, was the leader of the Pride this season, as she averaged 12.1 points, 3.3 assists and 2.1 steals per contest while averaging 31.2 minutes in all 28 games that Springfield College played this season. Goslin scored a career-best 20 points against Emerson on February 6, had a career-high 10 rebounds in a win over Clark on February 19 and a career-best seven steals in a victory over Wheaton on January 5. Honored as the New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) Women's Basketball Defensive Player of the Year, was an instrumental part of Springfield College holding the nation's top scoring offense, Westfield State, to a season-low 60 points in a 70-60 win for the maroon and white. Springfield College, which only gave up 54.6 points per contest, was ranked No. 3 in the NEWMAC in team defense.
