Chandler, Ariz. (November 28) – For the fourth time in program history and first since 2012, the MIT field hockey team saw four student-athletes receive all-region accolades from the National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA). Juniors Emily Penn (Columbia, Md.) and Katie Notarangelo (Foxboro, Mass.) represented the Engineers on the New England East Region first team while senior Krishna Jaitly (Bethesda, Md.) and sophomore Bailey Tregoning (Frederick, Md.) secured spots on the second team.
The recipient of her third first-team award, Penn paced the NEWMAC in goals (20) and was third in points (44) while ranking 14th in the country in goals per game (1.11). A second-team selection last year, Notarangelo recorded two goals, including the game-winner versus WPI, while helping the Engineers rank second in the conference in goals allowed (24) and goals against average (1.32) as a member of the midfield.
Fellow midfielder and a first-time honoree, Jaitly helped MIT generate a 341-171 margin in shots, a 224-106 advantage in shots on goal, and a 200-97 difference in penalty corners. Tregoning, who also received her first award from the NFHCA, paced the NEWMAC in game-winning goals (five) while ranking 10th in goals (10) and 12th in points (24).
