CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - Freshman Anna Teruya was named to the National Field Hockey Coaches' Association (NFHCA) Division III All-New England East Region first team. While MIT has placed at least one student-athlete on the All-Region team in each of the past five seasons, Teruya is the first freshman in program history to earn this distinction.
Starting all 19 games this season for the Engineers, Teruya ranked second on the team in goals (nine) and points (21). Both of those totals ranked her third among all NEWMAC freshmen. The NFHCA honor follows Teruya's selection to the NEWMAC first team All-Conference last week.
MIT finished the season with a record of 6-13, falling to eventual conference champion, Springfield, in the NEWMAC quarterfinal round
