Reilly Condidorio
Reilly Condidorio is the first All-American in the history of the Blue Devil women's soccer program. 

"Reilly is a special player," Case said, "someone who not only can score or make great plays but the player that is capable of making everyone around her better. It is so exciting to watch her play, the amount of energy and passion she puts into her game is astounding. She can change the game in an instant."

Fredonia State senior Reilly Condidorio has been chosen Second Team NCAA Division III All-American by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America.  She is the first All-American in the history of the Blue Devil women's soccer program.

Condidorio is the only SUNYAC women's soccer player to receive NSCAA 2011 All-American honors. The All-American team is comprised of 40 women from across the country.

"I am extremely excited for Reilly to be recognized for her outstanding play this past year," Blue Devil head coach Chris Case said. "She is a tremendous player and teammate and has helped this program find continued success. Her work ethic and commitment to our program has been remarkable."

A Dean's List student from LeRoy, she is majoring in Early Childhood Education.

Earlier this fall, Condidorio was named First Team All-SUNYAC after a record-setting season. She was SUNYAC Rookie of the Year in 2008 and First Team All-Conference in 2009. She also made the All-Region team both of those seasons.

She missed the entire 2010 season due to an injury, followed by surgery. She came back as strong as ever in 2011 to score 14 goals and accumulate 32 points -- both totals setting new single-season school records. In addition, her career totals of 82 points and 34 goals are also new school records set in the fall.

She has one season of athletic eligibility remaining.

"Reilly is a special player," Case said, "someone who not only can score or make great plays but the player that is capable of making everyone around her better. It is so exciting to watch her play, the amount of energy and passion she puts into her game is astounding. She can change the game in an instant."

Condidorio and the other All-American team members will be recognized at the annual All-America Luncheon on Jan. 14 at the Kansas City Convention Center's Grand Ballroom, in conjunction with the 2012 NSCAA Convention in Kansas City, Mo.
