HANOVER, N.H. – Dartmouth field hockey junior Ali Savage earned another accolade Tuesday for her play during the 2013 season. Savage was tabbed as an All-Northeast Region First Team Selection as announced by the National Field hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA).
A 2013 All-Ivy First Team player as well, the Australian native led the Big Green in every major statistical category this fall. In addition to being at the forefront of the Dartmouth attack, Savage finished the season tied for the league lead in both points (39) and assists (9), while second in goals (15).
Her 39 points were three-shy of tying Dartmouth’s single-season record of 42 and rank tied for fourth. The 15 goals was the sixth-best output by any Big Green player in four decades of play with 12 coming via four hat tricks, helping Savage tie both the program’s single-season mark (4) as well as the career record (6).
For Savage, this marked the second consecutive season she has earned NFHCA All-Northeast First Team honors after also being recognized last fall. Last week, the junior was also honored with her second straight unanimous first-team recognition by the Ivy League head coaches.
