(Posted December 10, 2007)
HUNTINGDON, Pa. - The post-season accolades continue to accumulate for the Juniata College field hockey team, which placed two players on the ECAC Division III Field Hockey All-Star squad that was announced Monday. Senior Kim Wagner (Middletown, Pa./Middletown) was named to the ECAC All-Stars First Team, while senior Heather Hassinger (Middleburg, Pa./Middleburg) was a Second Team ECAC All-Star selection. This is Wagner's second nod onto the All-ECAC first team. Wagner and Hassinger were the only Landmark Conference representatives on the ECAC squad, and two of only five players from Pennsylvania colleges. The ECAC is composed of 320 institutions in Divisions I, II, and III, stretching from Maine to North Carolina. Wagner finished the season with 25 goals and 11 assists for 61 points. She led the Landmark Conference in every offensive statistical category, and ended the regular season ranked fourth among Division III leaders in points per game (2.76), sixth in goals per game (1.14). She was the Landmark Conference\'s 2007 Offensive Player of the Year, the second time in her career Wagner has earned conference player of the year honors, and was a First Team All-Landmark selection. Wagner closed out a career that saw her rewrite the Juniata record books. She leaves as the program\'s career leader in points (184) and goals (81). Her 25 goals ranks second among single season efforts, trailing only the 31 goals she scored in 2006; she holds three of the top four single season performances in goals scored, and three of the top five single season efforts in total points. Hassinger had five goals and seven assists this season, on her way to earning Landmark Conference Co-Defensive Player of the Year honors and a spot on the All-Landmark Conference First team. Juniata finished its season with a 21-3 record, setting a new program record for wins. The Eagles received an at-large berth in the NCAA Division III Field Hockey Championship, the program\'s third NCAA appearance, defeating Johns Hopkins and defending national champion Ursinus College before bowing out against Lebanon Valley College in the regional final. -30-
