Turnbull, Fiore, Codey Earn NFHCA All-Region Nods


GILBERT, Ariz. – Elizabeth Turnbull '18, Caroline Fiore '18 and Kendall Codey '18 of the Amherst College field hockey team have been named to the Longstreth/National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA) New England West All-Region Teams, as announced recently by the organization.

Turnbull garnered First Team accolades, while Fiore and Codey landed on the All-Region Second Team.

196 student-athletes received All-Region recognition across the country's six regions, with 99 players earning First Team honors and 97 student-athletes earning Second Team distinction. By class, the All-Region squads consisted of 93 seniors, 59 juniors, 28 sophomores and 16 first-years.

A midfielder and tri-captain, Turnbull secures First Team accolades after landing on the Second Team a season ago. Wrapping up her collegiate career with a stellar senior season that saw the Harding Township, N.J. native capture First Team All-NESCAC honors, Turnbull started all 16 contests for Amherst en route to leading the squad in both scoring and total points. Tallying double digit points in all four seasons donning the Purple and White, Turnbull netted eight scores, including three game-winners, and three assists for 19 points this fall.

Tri-captain Fiore and Codey garner Second Team recognition following a season in which the duo led a Mammoth backline that notched a 1.48 goals against average. A defensive mainstay across the last four seasons for the Mammoths, the honor marks Fiore's third selection to the NFHCA All-Region teams after solidifying herself as one of the country's top defenders, while Codey proved to be a force on both sides of the field in 2017, logging five goals, including a game-winner, and dishing out five assists for 15 points (third on Amherst) while also making a team-high three defensive saves.

The Mammoths concluded the 2017 season ranked 18th in the nation with a 10-6 overall record and a 5-5 mark in conference play.
