CHANDLER, Ariz. – Senior forward Emma Kincaid of the Saint Anselm College field hockey team became the first-ever Hawks recipient of the Longstreth/National Field Hockey Coaches Association Division II Offensive Player of the Week merits on Wednesday.
The national award comes on the heels of Kincaid collecting Northeast-10 Conference Field Hockey Player of the Week merits on Monday after registering outstanding performances in each of her last two contests.
Kincaid recorded two goals in Tuesday's 3-2 victory over Stonehill before potting two assists against American International on Friday in a 9-0 victory. The Hawks, ranked fourth in NCAA Division II by the National Field Hockey Coaches Association, capped its regular season with a 17-1 overall record alongside an 11-1 mark against NE10 competition.
She enters Friday's NE10 semifinals game with at least two points in each of her last seven games and ultimately has racked up at least one point in her last nine games (7-6=20). Her 32 points of offense on the season off 11 goals and 10 assists (11-10=32) is a career-high mark.
Across 73 career games played, Kincaid has scored 28 goals and 16 assists for 72 points (28-16=72) to place her only two points behind the all-time mark of 74 points (28-18=74) set by Kristina Katsikis '13 from 2009-12. She needs only one goal to set the team record and her 16 assists are two away from tying the program's top mark.
