GILBERT, Ariz. — The National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA) has selected defender Kendall Codey '19 and midfielder Shannon Tierney '19 to play in the 2018 Division III Senior Game on Nov. 17 at the Spooky Nook Sports Complex in Manheim, Pa. Codey was selected as a field player and Tierney as an alternate field player. The Mammoths are two of twelve NESCAC student-athletes invited to the event.
In Codey's four-year collegiate career as a starter for the Mammoths, she has totaled eighteen goals and nine assists. Ten of those goals have come in her senior season this fall—two of which were game-winning goals. Her ten goals place her second on the team in scoring and tied for ninth in the NESCAC. The tri-captain was named the NESCAC Field Hockey Player of the Week at the end of September after the team's 4-3 comeback victory against Williams in which Codey scored two goals and, on defense, helped limit the Ephs to just three shots on goal in the second half of the game. Last season, she was nominated to Second Team All-Conference in the NESCAC and to the NFHCA New England West All-Region Second Team.
Tierney has been a rock for the Amherst field hockey team in her four years as a midfielder. She has tallied nine goals and eight assists and has had three game-winning goals. The Garden City, N.Y. native has started in 54 of her 65 games with the Mammoths, starting in every game since the beginning of her sophomore year.
As a selected field player, Codey is joined by fellow NESCAC student-athletes Taylor Lough of Bates, Jamie Navoni of Connecticut College, Sarah Kane of Hamilton, Ally Slowe and Chandler Solimine of Trinity, and Isabella Del Priore and Gianna Tutoni of Tufts. Julia Booth of Hamilton and Riley Whitmyer of Colby were invited as two of eight goalkeepers and Lauren Hirshom of Connecticut College will be joining Tierney as an alternate field player.
Saturday's game on Nov. 19 at the Spooky Nook Sports Complex in Manheim, Pa. will begin at 5 p.m.
