Connolly Adds To Honors
FSU's Megan Connolly had a fantastic freshman year for the women's football side, notching 9 goals and 10 assists from midfield. Connolly's breakout rookie campaign led to her being named the Football Assocation of Ireland's Women's U-19 Player of the Year for the second consecutive year. This adds to her multiple honors, including All American, ACC Freshman of the Year, and ACC Midfielder of the Year. Congratulations to her and the FSU program.
