Petrelli & Delano Earn All-American Honors

November 25, 2008

Senior Taryn Petrelli (Harrison, N.Y.) and sophomore Chase Delano (Greenwich, Conn.) have both earned All-American honors by the NFHCA (National Field Hockey Coaches Association). Delano was a first-team selection, while Petrelli earned a spot on the second team. The duo helped lead the Panthers to a 14-4 record with a trip to the NCAA quarterfinals.

Earning first-team All-American honors, Delano scored more goals and recorded more points this season than any other player in school history. The sophomore netted 27 goals in 18 games to go along with seven assists for 61 points. She ranked second in the NESCAC with 3.39 points/game and 1.50 goals/game. Delano scored in all but three games this season, with two or more goals on nine different occasions.

Petrelli earned a spot on the second-team after being named to the All-Region team for the past three seasons. She is also a three-time All-NESCAC selection for the Panthers. The senior helped anchor a Panther defense that has allowed just 1.52 goals/game this season, fifth in the NESCAC. Petrelli played in 73 career games at Middlebury, with three goals and three assists and some stellar defense.
