LEWISTON, Maine — Bates College field hockey players Rachel Greenwood and Katie McEnroe both won all-region honors on Monday from the National Field Hockey Coaches Association, the second postseason honor in less than a week for both women.
Greenwood (Williamstown, Mass.), a senior forward, and McEnroe (Hockessin, Del.), a sophomore goalkeeper, were each named to the Division III New England West All-Region Second Team by the NFHCA. It is the first all-region honor for both players.
Last week, McEnroe had the distinction of being named the lone goalie on the NESCAC All-Conference First Team, while Greenwood was named to the Second Team.
Greenwood (Williamstown, Mass.), a team co-captain for the 6-9 Bobcats and perhaps the team’s fieriest leader, scored 7 goals with 2 assists on the year, ranking second on the team in points behind Sema Kazarian (Providence, R.I.). Greenwood scored the game-winning goal against Colby in overtime in the Bobcats’ regular-season finale, earning the team its first berth in the NESCAC Championship since 2005.
McEnroe led the conference in saves per game by a wide margin, with 9.50 per game, 3.37 more than any other netminder in the conference. She also ranked seventh in the NESCAC in save percentage at .764. McEnroe started 14 games for the Bobcats and allowed 3.04 goals per game while making 136 saves with one shutout. She is Bates’ first goalie to be named all-conference since Peggy Ficks ’01 in 2000.
