OLD WESTBURY, N.Y. — NYIT women's soccer standout Dina Simonian has been selected to the second-team All-East Region by the Division II Conference Commissioners Association.

Simonian, a midfielder from Westbury on Long Island, completed her NYIT career with 20 goals (tied for sixth in program history), 10 assists (tied for seventh) and 50 points (tied for fifth).

She matched her career high with a three-goal game in a 4-2 victory against Daemen on Sept. 30 and scored the double-overtime winner a week later to produce the program's first win against Molloy since 2009.
