MIDDLEBURY, Vt. - Six members of Middlebury College Athletic teams were honored today by the NESCAC. Three of the athletes came from the field hockey team, while three also came from the women's soccer squad.


In field hockey, senior Missy Krempa (Johnstown, N.Y.) was a first-team selection as a defender. Krempa helped anchor a Panther defense that allowed less than a goal/game this season, including seven shutouts. She also got in on the offense with six goals and three assists for 15 points.

Senior Char Glessner (Ipswich, Mass.) earns second-team honors after a huge season for the undefeated Panthers. She leads the team with 16 goals and seven assists for 39 points on the season. She ranks third in the NESCAC with 2.44 points and 1.0 assists/game this season. Glessner is the school's all-time leader in assists with 25, is third in goals with 46 and second in points with 117.

Sophomore Channing Weymouth (Plymouth, N.H.) also earned second-team honors from her midfield position. Weymouth helped control the tempo this season for Middlebury as she was steady all season long. She currently has two goals and four assist for eight points in '03.

Glessner and Krempa were both also selected to play in the North/South senior all-star game later this month.

Junior Brittany Cronin (Aurora, Colo.) was second-team All-NESCAC selection for the women's soccer team. She led the team with 13 goals and five assists for 31 points this season. Her 13 goals tie her for second on the school's all-time single-season list, while her 31 points rank her third.

Sophomore Caitlin Fabian (Short Hills, N.J.) patrolled the back for Middlebury defense, which allowed only .85 goals/game this season. The second-team selection also picked up an assist this season from the back as Middlebury ended the season with seven shutouts.

Junior Els Van Woert (Shelburne, Vt.) is the third member of the second-team as the Panther's goalkeeper. Van Woert was third in the league with a 0.80 goals against average over 1,010 minutes of action this season. She also earned four shutouts and made 46 saves on the year.
