Brosch, Lockwood, Pashos Head Field Hockey's List of Conference Honorees
BABSON PARK, Mass.—The New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) announced its annual postseason field hockey awards on Tuesday, with Babson College senior captains Anneliese Brosch (Essex, Mass.) and Jess Pashos (Winchester, Mass.) and sophomore Morgan Lockwood (Feeding Hills, Mass.) each earned All-Conference accolades. Brosch and Lockwood were selected to the All-NEWMAC First Team while Pashos earned Second Team honors.
The NEWMAC also released its 2011 Academic All-Conference Team this week. A trio of Babson sophomores were among the honorees, as Julia Pochini (Acton, Mass.), Jill Chaffee (Colrain, Mass.), and Lockwood were recognized for their achievements in the classroom.
A Second Team selection last fall, Brosch earns a spot on the All-Conference First Team for the first time in her career. A Second Team National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA) All-New England East selection last year, the senior back started all 20 games this season and finished with a goal and two assists. Brosch started 78 of 79 games in her career at Babson, tallying two goals and chipping in with 16 assists to help the program to 47 wins over four years.
Lockwood earns First Team All-Conference honors for the second year in a row after finishing as the NEWMAC Rookie of the Year and earning NFHCA All-New England East First Team honors in 2010. The sophomore started all 20 games this season and was third in the conference in goals scored with 21 and finished fifth in points with 51. Five of those goals came in a 6-1 win over Clark - tying her own program record for goals in a game. Just halfway through her career, Lockwood is already fourth in program history in career goals with 47 and fifth in career points with 110.
Pashos was tabbed as an All-NEWMAC honoree for the second straight year, earning Second Team honors in her senior campaign. A First Team All-NEWMAC and First Team NFHCA All-New England East selection in 2010, Pashos had a 2.91 goals against average and made a career-high 192 saves. Pashos started all 81 team games during her four-year Babson career, making 533 saves, and finishing with a 2.14 goals against average and a .762 save percentage. Her 47 career wins is the most for any goalie in program history.
Pochini, a midfielder, started all 22 games this season and tallied two assists, while Chaffee, a back, appeared in eight games in her first season with the Beavers, including two starts.
Babson, the 2010 NEWMAC Champions, finished the season at 9-12 while advancing as far as the conference semifinals.
