Three members of the Middlebury College women’s hockey team have earned All-NESCAC honors. Senior Madison Styrbicki (Edina, Minn.) was named to the first-team, while senior Lauren Greer (N. Hampton, N.H.) and sophomore Hannah Bielawski (Evanston, Ill.) earned second-team honors. The group are preparing for this weekend’s NESCAC Championship that will take place on Saturday and Sunday in Kenyon Arena.
Styrbicki earns first-team All-NESCAC honors for the third straight season after being a second-team honoree as a rookie. The Panther defender has three solo goals this season and four two-assist games. She earned two assists in back-to-back wins over Bowdoin and Hamilton in late January and has 11 overall this season. Styrbicki has played in 106 career games at Middlebury, more than any other player in the senior class. She owns 18 career goals and 56 helpers for 74 points.
Greer earns All-NESCAC honors for the second straight season. The Panther forward is tied for fourth on the team with 17 points this season, coming on nine goals and eight assists despite missing six games with an injury. She has two two-goal games this season and has scored in each of her last two games. Greer recorded a goal and an assist in the NESCAC Quarterfinal win over Colby. She owns 45 goals and 43 assist for 88 points in 92 career games at Middlebury. This past fall, she was named the National Player of the Year for the Panther field hockey team.
Bielawski has a solid sophomore campaign as a forward. The sophomore leads the team with 18 assists this season and is second in the NESCAC with .72 assists/contest. She owns nine goals and is tied for the team-lead with 27 points, placing her third in the league with 1.08 ppg. Bielawski also paces the team and NESCAC with .56 power play points/game. She has scored solo goals in nine games this season, while dishing out three assists in a January 26th win over Hamilton. She has eight multiple-point games this season, including earning a goal and an assist in last weekend’s NESCAC Quarterfinal win over Colby.
