Three Washington College field hockey players were recently garnered All-Centennial Conference honors in a vote conducted by the conference's 11 head coaches.
Freshman forward/midfielder Kailyn Brandt (White Hall, Md./Hereford School) was named All-Centennial Conference first team, senior defender Katie Arnold (Hockessin, Del./Wilmington Christian School) earned a spot on the All-Centennial second team, while junior midfielder Nicole Schroyer (Stevensville, Md./Kent Island School District) received all-conference honorable mention.
Brandt becomes the first Shorewoman to earn All-Centennial first team honors as a freshman and is the first Washington field hockey player to win the conference's rookie of the year award.
She is also the first Washington College fall sport student-athlete to win the rookie of the year award and is just the seventh freshman in conference history, first since 2013, to earn first team honors.
In her rookie campaign, Brandt had 10 goals and six assists for 26 points leading the Shorewomen in all three categories and set the Washington record for assists and points as a freshman. At the end of the Centennial Conference Tournament, she leads the conference in assists and is fifth in points and sixth in goals.
Arnold and Schroyer join Brandt in earning all-conference recognition for the first time.
The Shorewomen have had at least one first team selection in nine of the past 10 years.
Arnold finished tied for third in the Centennial through the end of the conference tournament with five defensive saves as she helped Washington return to the conference tournament for the first time since 2014.
The senior helped the Shorewomen record a pair of shutouts this season.
Washington College is located in Chestertown, Md.
