NEW YORK | The Skyline Conference's 10 women's soccer head coaches have voted on the 2018 edition of their all-conference team, and the Farmingdale State College duo of Tara Lyons and Daniella Ford have been selected as Offensive and Defensive Player of the Year, respectively.

Sarah Lawrence freshman forward Kiley Ritter takes home Rookie of the Year kudos, while her mentor, second-year Gryphons head coach Maurizio Grillo, was named Coach of the Year by his peers.

Lyons is one of five FSC players with eight-plus goals on the season, and will enter 2018 NCAA Division III Women's Soccer Championship play with 22 points (8 g, 6 a) on the campaign.

Ford owns a 0.58 goals against average and a 16-3-3 record for the 21st-ranked Rams, while also collecting 13 total shutouts (eight solo) and 83 saves (.874 save pct.).

Ritter bagged a conference-best 20 goals and 45 points in her rookie campaign for the Gryphons.

Grillo, a native of Italy, led the Gryphons to the No. 4 seed in the Skyline Conference Championship and a first-round home game for the first time in program history.
