UMW senior midifielder Caitlin Baker capped her outstanding career by being named a first team All-American by the National Field Hockey Coaches Association on Monday. Baker was a second team All-American a year ago.
The senior scored 12 goals and led the team with 11 assists this season, upping her career total to 138 points, second most in school history. She finished with 48 goals and 42 assists, which shatters the career assist record at the school.
"Caitlin has been an instrumental part to the success of our team the last three seasons", said UMW head coach Lindsey Elliott. "She has worked hard and is truly deserving of being recognized as an All American. Baker's determination and desire to win will be missed next year."
