Hughes, Windsor named NFHCA All-Americans

GILBERT, Ariz. – The National Field Hockey Coaches Association announced its Division III All-Americans on Wednesday and Salisbury University senior Tressie Windsor and sophomore Jillian Hughes were each named to the third team.

Salisbury is one of just 10 schools with at least two All-Americans this year, while Hughes is one of only four sophomores to earn the honor.

Windsor continues to bring in the accolades for her 2017 season, as she was a first-team pick for the All-Capital Athletic Conference team and the NFHCA South All-Region team. She was also named the CAC Player of the Year.

Windsor recorded a 12-5 record in 2017 to go with a 0.81 goals-allowed average and a .827 save percentage. She ranked at the top of the CAC and 10th nationally in save percentage, while standing second in the CAC and sixth nationally in GAA.

Hughes helped to anchor the defense in front of Windsor, as the Salisbury defense ranked fifth in the nation in team goals-allowed average, giving up just 0.79 goals per 70 minutes. Hughes turned away four opposing shots with defensive saves this season, leading the team and standing fifth in the league.

This is first All-American honor for both Sea Gulls.
