Boston, Mass. (November 8) – For the second year in a row the MIT field hockey team collected four All-Conference accolades from the NEWMAC. Junior Emily Penn (Columbia, Md.) earned her third straight first-team honor and was joined by classmate Katie Notarangelo (Foxboro, Mass.) as a repeat first-team pick. On the second team, the Engineers were represented by senior Krishna Jaitly (Bethesda, Md.) and sophomore Bailey Tregoning (Frederick, Md.), both of whom received their first plaudits from the league.
Penn finished the season ranked first in the NEWMAC in goals (20) and points (44) while registering the game-winning goals versus UMass Dartmouth, Gordon College, and Springfield College in the quarterfinals of the NEWMAC Tournament.
As members of MIT's midfield, Notarangelo and Jaitly helped generate a 341-171 margin in shots, a 224-106 advantage in shots on goal, and a 200-97 difference in penalty corners. They contributed to a defense that produced a 1.32 goals against average, which ranked second in the NEWMAC. Offensively, Notarangelo found the back of the net twice while Jaitly posted two goals and three assists.
Tregoning, who was second on the team in goals (10) and points (24), closed the campaign ranked ninth and 11th, respectively, in the conference statistics.
In addition to the All-Conference Teams, freshman Kate Brewer (Louisville, Ky.) was named to the newly established NEWMAC All-Sportsmanship Team for the 2016 season. The award is intended to recognize one student-athlete from each team, in every sport, that best demonstrates the ideals of the NEWMAC and its Code of Conduct.
