Field hockey player Cassidy earns All-Region honors

WATERVILLE, Maine -- Colby College sophomore Georgia Cassidy (Darien, Conn) earned her second postseason award Wednesday after being named to the National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA) New England West Region Second Team.
 
Cassidy had already been named to the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) All-Conference Second Team.
 
Cassidy, who tied the team's single-season goal scoring record, made an immediate impact in her first year with the Mules. Her scoring ability helped the Mules finish 9-6 overall after the team was 6-9 in 2016. 
 
Cassidy was sixth in the NESCAC in total goals (15) and is tied with three-time All-American Wendy Bonner for Colby's single-season goal scoring record. Cassidy also had three assists and ranked seventh in the league in points (33). She also added three game-winning goals.
 
Cassidy, a University of North Carolina transfer,  came up big in a number of Colby wins this year. She scored in a 3-2 win over Trinity College, which made the NESCAC final and the NCAA tourney. Cassidy also had both goals in a 2-1 win at Wesleyan University and had an assist in Colby's huge 1-0 win over then sixth-ranked Amherst College.
