Shrewsbury – Maclaine Lehan is decorated with accolades from her long-tenured soccer career. An NSCAA All-American, two-time Independent School League Defensive Player of the Year, and a NEPSAC Class B champion, the Shrewsbury resident was at the top of her class as a center back for the Red Wings at the Rivers School in Weston. She is the oldest child of John and Michele Lehan.
So technically sound, so quick, and so formidable to approaching offensive players, it was no surprise that she was recruited by Division I colleges for her athletic prowess. Susanna Donahue, the varsity girls’ soccer coach at the Rivers, believes Lehan was one of the best defenders to ever come through the Independent School League.
