Klauber and Teruya to Play in NFHCA Senior All-Star Game Saturday

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – MIT seniors Kameron Klauber (Carlsbad, Calif.) and Anna Teruya (Hockessin, Del.) will cap their outstanding careers by playing in the National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA) Division III Senior All-Star game this weekend. The game will be held at Nichols College, site of this year's NCAA Division III championship, at 5:00 p.m. on Saturday.

Klauber, who was recently named the New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) Athlete of the Year, led the team with 25 goals and 72 points on the year, breaking her own single-season program marks in both categories. She also became the Institute's all-time leader in career goals (55) and points (145), despite playing just three seasons. A two-time NEWMAC all-conference selection, Klauber leads all of NCAA Division III in assists per game this year and is eighth in the nation in points per game.

Teruya helped anchor an MIT defense that was one of the tops in the country while also remaining a potent offensive threat on penalty corners. She had 11 goals and a pair of assists and was named to the second team NEWMAC all-conference. The senior helped the Cardinal and Gray clinch the NEWMAC tournament title in thrilling fashion, scoring the game-winner in overtime of the championship against Mount Holyoke to send Tech into the NCAA tournament for the second time in three years.

Klauber and Teruya were part of an outstanding MIT senior class this year, along with co-captain Katie Kauffman (Olney, Md.), that won 58 games over four seasons and earned a pair of NEWMAC championships.

MIT fell in the quarterfinals of the NCAA tournament to top seed and defending champion, Bowdoin College, 3-0 on Sunday afternoon. The Engineers set a program record for wins in a season, posting a 19-4 ledger on the year.
