Three Tigers Named NFHCA All-Region

NFHCA Release 

GILBERT, Ariz. - Three Sewanee field hockey players were selected as members of the Longstreth/NFHCA All-Great Lakes Region Team, announced by the National Field Hockey Coaches Association on Wednesday.

Katie Wilson was tabbed to the First Team of the region, while Ceara Caffrey and Jo Jo Young represented the Second Team.

A three-time All-Region member, Wilson was selected to the First Team in consecutive years after earning a spot last season. The Chapel Hill, N.C. native scored four goals and assisted on three for 11 total points, while starting in all 16 games for the Tigers.

Named to the NFHCA Senior Game, the three-time NFHCA Scholar of Distinction netted a goal in the contest on Nov. 18 at Bellarmine University in Louisville, Ky.

Caffrey, after a freshman year with 10 goals and five game winners, netted 13 goals in 16 games for the Tigers. Finishing with 28 total points, the Scituate, Mass. native recorded three game-winners.

Her stick came to life in the first round of the SAA Field Hockey Tournament, where she completed a hat trick against Concordia Wisconsin, netting goals in the 24th, 53rd and 62nd minutes en route to a 3-1 victory over the Falcons.

Young was a major factor to the Tigers midfield in 2017. The two-time All-Region team member scored one goal and helped on three others. In Sewanee's matchup at Earlham, the McLean, Va. native helped Virginia Barry net the game-winner in the 60th minute. The Tigers shut out Earlham, 2-0.

The Tigers finished 8-8 on the 2017 season and finished as a semifinalist in the 2017 SAA Field Hockey Tournament.
