Field Hockey Honors
With Field Hockey's appearance in the NCAA tournament, we now have word of All-Region honors for Cardinal Field Hockey players. Five Cards have received the honor.
Elisa "Chile" Garcia, Paige Monsen and Allysa Voelmle were tabbed for the first team, while Sydney King and Mallory Mason got nods for the second team All-Region.
None of the Cardinal All-Region team honorees are attackers, a testament to the Cardinal defending this season. Garcia and Monsen are midfielders, while Voelmle and Mason are defenders. Three of the five, Monsen, Voelmle and Mason, are seniors, while the Field Hockey team will still have the services of Garcia and King for another year.
Sydney King is the Cardinal GoalKeeper and also got a nod on my Cardinal Couple/Worldwide All-Syd team back in September. King is somewhat unusual by being a west-coast Field Hockey player, hailing from Newport Beach, California.

The other three honorees all came to Louisville from the New England area, with Monsen being from Marathon, NY; Voelmle having come from Hershey, PA; and Mason claims Simsbury, CT as her hometown.
