Five field hockey players earn conference honors

While the field hockey team was still in season, the Northeast-10 conference announced their All-Conference teams. Five New Haven players were honored for their contributions to the team, leading the way for a successful season and making it all the way to the conference semifinal game.

Starting off with graduate student Taylor Geaglone, who was named NE-10 Defensive Player of the Year and earned a selection to the All-Conference First Team. Geaglone was a huge part of the Chargers’ success this season, acting as a facilitator for the defense and contributing on offense with a career-high in both goals and assists. With these awards, she ends her career with New Haven as one of the best players in the conference.

Midfielder Sophie Schreck also took home All-Conference First Team honors, finishing the season as the leading scorer for the Chargers with a career-high eight goals and six assists. Schreck is also a graduate student this season, so her career with the Chargers will also come to an end as a top player on the team and in the conference.

Senior midfielder Katie Durkee was named to the NE-10 Second Team after a season where she was one of the best defensive players for the Chargers, also contributing on the offensive end. Her assist on the game-winning goal against Bentley helped the team advance to the second round of the playoffs, bringing her to a new career high.

Goalkeeper Keira Integlia brought home All-Conference Third Team honors after her graduate season, in which she tallied four shutouts and 134 saves. She finishes her career with 269 saves, also surpassing her career with high saves in a single game when the Chargers beat Adelphi University in a crucial overtime win.

Freshman forward Erin Smith was named the Conference All-Rookie team with five goals, good for the second most on the team. Smith was one of the most consistent players for the Chargers, delivering big goals in big moments to help the team win crucial games. Her game-winning goal against Bentley in the first round of the playoffs sent New Haven to the second round, solidifying her role for the Chargers for next season.
