Panther named best in NCAA D3 field hockey

PANTHER JUNIOR ERIN Nicholas was recently named the NCAA Division III Field Hockey Player of the Year for the second straight season. Nicholas helped the Panthers win their third straight NCAA championship this fall.

MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury College junior field hockey player Erin Nicholas has been named the National Field Hockey Coaches Association Player of the Year for the second-consecutive season.
Nicholas helped lead the Panthers to a 21-1 record en route to their third straight NCAA Division III championship and fourth in the last five years. She was named the NCAA tournament’s Most Outstanding Player.
Now a two-time All-American, Nicholas recently became the first NESCAC player to be named Rookie of the Year and then win back-to-back league Player of the Year honors. She finished the season tied for the team lead with 29 points, while ranking second with 11 goals and seven assists, and led the league with six game-winning goals in 2019. 
Nicholas also played several positions for the Panthers, including attack, midfield and defense, and played a crucial role on the four-player unit that defended opponents’ penalty corners.
Nicholas also won an NCAA championship this past spring with the Middlebury women’s lacrosse program.
