MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. - Senior goalkeeper Shay Mannino has been named to the All-Senior All-American Second Team, adding yet another accomplishment during her prestigious career.

Mannino (Grosse Ile, Mich.,/Grosse Ile HS), the only goalkeeper named to either the first or second team, was named one of 10 finalists for the Lowe's Senior CLASS Award in November.

An acronym for Celebrating Loyalty and Achievement for Staying in School®, the Lowe's Senior CLASS Award focuses on the total student-athlete and encourages students to use their platform in athletics to make a positive impact as leaders in their communities.

The all-time leader in shutouts and goals-against average in Mid-American Conference history, Mannino finished her senior campaign with a 0.552 goals-against average, good for 10th in the nation.

Mannino led the Chippewas to back-to-back regular season and tournament championships during her final two years between the pipes, earning two-straight NCAA tournament berths. She holds CMU career records for wins (45), shutouts (31) and goals-against average (0.71).

Earlier this season, Mannino was named to the CoSIDA/ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District IV third team, as well as earning Academic All-MAC honors.

A major in elementary education with a concentration in integrated science with a planned program minor, Mannino sports a 3.82 grade-point average.
