W&M's Erica Eng, Kelsey Nawalinski Earn All-CAA Honors


PHILADELPHIA, PA - The William and Mary field hockey team had two of its seniors earn all-conference honors Friday night, on the eve of the Colonial Athletic Association Championships in Philadelphia. The honors mark the 25th year in a row that the Tribe has had at least one all-conference honoree, and 26th time overall since joining the South Atlantic Conference (pre-cursor to the CAA) in 1984. At least two players have been feted in 22 out of those 26 seasons.

Senior Erica Eng (Morristown, N.J.) was named to the All-CAA second-team for the first time, after starting every match for the Tribe's defense. She also served as the set-up player on the College's penalty corners, and in that role chalked up a team-best three assists. She scored twice in her own right, including the Tribe's only penalty stroke of the year, to tie for the team lead in points. On the defensive end, she was part of the penalty-killing unit that stopped 95% of the corner opportunities against the Tribe, and record a career-high two defensive saves on the year. Eng finished her four years with nine goals, six assists, and three defensive saves.

Also earning second-team honors was captain Kelsey Nawalinski (Downingtown, Pa.), who started every match in the Tribe's midfield. Nawalinski ranked third on the team with two goals scored, and put 11 of her 17 attempts on-frame. One of the Tribe's most tenacious and aggressive players in the midfield, her contributions didn't always make the stat sheet but definitely made it into the minds of the league's coaches. An all-rookie selection in 2008 after redshirting her first year, Nawalinski totaled 10 goals and five assists in her three years on the field while appearing in every match.
