Three great Golden Warriors, three great Terriers

Boston University women’s soccer coach Nancy Feldman knows how to find Andover on the map. She’s recruited three former Golden Warriors who’ve had tremendous careers for the Terriers.

“Andover has been very good to me,” said Feldman, who recently completed her 18th season on Commonwealth Ave.

It began with Meghan (Lynch) Matson.

Now as the Andover High coach, Matson helped send two of her stars to Boston University.

Jess Morrow ‘13

Honors: Third-team All-American (top 50 players nationally), named a finalist for yet to be named Academic All-American team, Academic Achievement Award 2011, 2012; America East Defender of the Year

Coach Nancy Feldman on Morrow: “We played (NCAA tourney teams) Stanford, BC and Santa Clara. Jess belonged. She belonged with the best players on the best teams.”

Emily Pallotta ‘10

Honors: America East Woman of the Year, three-time All-America East (twice first team); America East Midfielder of the Year, Terrier Leadership Award, third-team Academic All-American, two-time Academic Achievement Award, No. 10 in career goals (19) at BU.

Feldman on Pallotta: “Emily in a lot of ways was a culture changer. She raised the bar in fitness and in expectations and in what we want to be about with academics. ”

Meghan (Lynch) Matson ‘00

Honors: Terrier Leadership Award, BU record for saves in a game (15), second in career saves (247), fourth in career shutouts (19.9); twice led America East in goals-against-average.

Feldman on Matson: “She was really in our first recruiting class. I remember I sat in the living room with David and Valerie Lynch. I remember it vividly.”
