Molly McShane Becomes First Two-Time All-American in Field Hockey History

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – For the second consecutive season, Molly McShane earned All-America honors from the National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA), as the sophomore was tabbed to the national Third Team on Monday. McShane becomes just the sixth All-America selection in program history and the first player ever to earn multiple accolades.

McShane, who was the Player of the Year in the region a year ago, was recently named to the NFHCA All-New England East First Team for the second time in her young career. A two-time New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) All-Conference selection, McShane has helped lead the Engineers to back-to-back appearances in the conference title game, winning the league crown in 2009. This season, McShane led the team in assists with 12 on the season, a total that was good for third in the NEWMAC and 17th nationally. That number marks the third-highest single-season total in Institute history and she currently ranks fifth all-time with 19 helpers in her career.

Teammates Kameron Klauber, Alex Wright and Keri Dixon joined McShane on the NFHCA All-Region team, announced last week.
