Cassidy, Corbett, Whitmyer earn field hockey all-region honors

WATERVILLE, Maine -- Colby College's Georgia Cassidy (Darien, Conn.), Ally Corbett (Oakland, Maine), and Riley Whitmyer (Bentleyville, Ohio) were named to the National Field Hockey Coaches Association New England West Second Team on Wednesday.

The three Colby players had already earned New England S mall College Athletic Conference Second Team honors. That tied the team record for players selected since the playoff system in the league started in 2000.

Cassidy, who earned all-region and All-NESCAC honors for the second year in a row, finished fifth in the conference in scoring. Cassidy, a junior, finished with 12 goals and nine assists for 33 points. She has 66 career points in her two years with the Mules.

Corbett, a sophomore defender, is a transfer from St. Joseph's University. She had one assist on the season and was a key player in back with her passing and ball striking abilities. 
  
Whitmyer, a senior and three-year starter, finished her career with 308 saves, a .798 save percentage, 20 victories, 12 shutouts and a 1.98 goals against average. She led the NESCAC this season in total saves and led the league in save percentage last year.
