Gilbert, Ariz. (December 6) – MIT seniors Emily Penn (Columbia, Md.) and Katie Notarangelo (Foxboro, Mass.) capped off their field hockey careers by being selected to the National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA) All-America Teams on Wednesday. Penn was named to the first team while Notarangelo earned a spot on the second team, marking the Engineers' first multiple honorees since the 2012 season.
A third-team pick last year, Penn graduates as MIT's all-time leader in career goals with 69 in addition to ranking third in points (151). The All-America accolade comes after she was named the NEWMAC Athlete of the Year and the NFHCA New England East Region Player of the Year.
Notarangelo was recognized on the national scene for the first time following one of the best seasons of her career. As a midfielder, she produced seven goals and five assists while also contributing to a defense that led the NEWMAC and ranked 10th in the nation in shutouts (nine). Notarangelo helped MIT pace the conference in fewest goals allowed (20) and finish second in goals against average (1.05).
