All-NCAC and all-region teams announced

(L-R) Karla Dixon, Brittany Benson, and Katie McMahon were all first-team All-NCAC and all-region picks.
(L-R) Karla Dixon, Brittany Benson, and Katie McMahon were all first-team All-NCAC and all-region picks.

Five members of the Denison field hockey team were named to the National Field Hockey Coaches Association All-Region team and seven garnered All-North Coast Athletic Conference honors after posting a 15-6 record and finishing second in the NCAC.

Headlining both teams with first-team all-region and all-conference accolades was senior goalie Brittany Benson, junior forward Katie McMahon and junior defender/midfielder Karla Dixon.  Benson started all 21 matches and posted six shutouts while notching 112 saves in 1475 minutes in goal.  She leaves Denison as the program's all-time leader in shutouts, saves and save percentage.

McMahon finished second on the squad in goals with 17 and second in assists with seven while making 21 starts.  A second-team all-region choice and first-team All-NCAC pick a season ago, Dixon moved to the all-region first-team after another stellar season moving between Denison's defense and the midfield.  The DU defense held the opposition to just 26 goals in 21 matches while the offense scored 67 goals.

Following on second-team all-conference and all-region was senior Catie Merrick and sophomore Alex W. Berman.  Merrick leaves DU as the program's all-time leader in points and goals scored.  She finished this year with a team-high 21 goals and nine assists.  Merrick has scored 75 goals in four seasons in Granville.   In Berman's first season as a starter on defense, she teamed with senior Katherine Ireland to wreak havoc on opposing offenses.  An honorable mention All-NCAC pick in 2011 and a second-team pick in 2010, Ireland was named second-team all-conference in 2012.

Rounding out Denison's list of honorees this season was first-year midfielder Kate Hackett who finished with one goal and five assists while starting nine of 19 contests.
