CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – A pair of Engineers collected Field Hockey All-Conference honors, as the New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) announced its postseason awards today. Junior Kameron Klauber and sophomore Molly McShane were named to the First Team All-Conference, after helping lead MIT to a runner-up finish in last weekend's NEWMAC Championship tournament. The Cardinal and Gray also received the league's Sportsmanship Award, as voted on by student-athletes throughout the conference.
Klauber, who led the Engineers in goals (22) and points (52) on the season, earned All-Conference accolades for the first time in her career. The junior forward ranked third in the league in scoring and had five game-winning tallies on the year. Her 22 markers and 52 points eclipsed the single-season program records, set by Kimberly Barker last year.
McShane, who was the New England East Player of the Year as a freshman, received the All-Conference distinction for the second straight season. A steady presence in the midfield, McShane led the team in assists (12), a total that was good for third in the NEWMAC.
Tech's season came to an end on Sunday afternoon in the conference Championship game, falling to Babson College, 6-1. The Engineers established a new program record for goals per game (3.87) and matched the longest winning streak in MIT history with a string of nine-straight victories in the middle of the season.
