FSU Enjoys Another Dominant Fall Sports Season

Jul 14, 2015

Framingham State University has enjoyed another successful fall athletic season that saw the women’s soccer team win the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) tournament championship and the football and women’s volleyball teams finish as conference champions.

“We’ve been very successful in the fall the last couple of years,” says Athletic Director and Head Football Coach Tom Kelley. “This is the fifth consecutive postseason in a row for football. Both our men’s and women’s soccer teams have enjoyed success and volleyball has been on a roll.”

The women’s soccer team upset top seed Wheaton Lyons in the semifinals and then beat the University of New England in shootouts to win the finals of the ECAC Tournament for the first time in many years. The team finished 14-7-1 on the season.

The football team continued its 5-year-run of dominance in the Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletic Conference (MASCAC), finishing undefeated in conference play and 9-1 overall to earn a spot in the ECAC Northeast Bowl. The team hasn’t lost to a conference opponent in three seasons and is 28-5 over that period.

The women’s volleyball team also finished a perfect 6-0 in conference play and 23-12 overall, earning an invite to the NCAA Tournament. It was the team’s third straight season with at least 23 wins.
