FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Longstreth/National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA) Division III All-Region squads have been announced and three from the Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) have earned accolades. Saint Joseph's College of Maine sophomore forward Libby Pomerleau (Limerick, Maine) has collected New England East First Team honors while SJC senior defender Hayley Winslow (Falmouth, Maine) is listed on the Second Team along with Lasell College senior Denise Landry.
Pomerleau, the 2017 GNAC Offensive Player of the Year and two-time First Team All-GNAC selection, earns regional acclaim after netting 22 goals with five assists for 49 total points this season. She broke the SJC single-season goals record and her point tally is second only to Kayla Nowell's 57-point effort in 2008. In two seasons, Pomerleau has already registered 38 goals and 15 assists for 91 total points with a program-record 16 game-winning goals in 42 games.
Winslow, the 2017 GNAC Defensive Player of the Year and two-time First Team All-GNAC honoree, collects Longstreth/NFHCA New England East Region Second Team honors after netting six goals and two assists for 14 total points with three game-winners – all career-highs – during her senior season. The two-year team captain also spearheaded a defense that allowed 20 goals in 21 games with a 0.92 goals against average.
Lasell, which placed a league-leading six student-athletes on the 2017 All-GNAC First Team, saw Landry lead GNAC netminders with a .835 save percentage, allowing just three goals in her seven GNAC games.
