Halsted Named to Longstreth/NFHCA All-Region Team for Camels

NEW LONDON, Conn.--Connecticut College senior midfielder Heidi Halsted of Mill Valley, Calif. has been named to the Longstreth/National Field Hockey Coaches Association All-New England West Region Second Team for the Camels.

Halsted was a co-captain for a Camel field hockey team that put together a late season rally to force a three-way tie for eighth place in the NESCAC standings.

Halsted contributed one goal and two assist while also adding a defensive save as a leader for Head Coach Chrissy Needham's Camels.

"After missing her junior season due to injury, Heidi started every game this season at the center midfield position," Needham said. "She was a catalyst for our offense and a workhorse on defense, often tasked with covering our opponents' strongest midfielder. She proved herself to be a player whose value to the team goes far beyond simple statistics. Her selection to the All-Region team is a reflection of her athletic ability and her commitment to our field hockey program, as well as the leadership she provided throughout the season with our young team."

A two-sport athlete, Halsted is also a member of the women's lacrosse team at Connecticut College.

She recently completed an internship with the Boston Cannons of Major League Lacrosse.

A Psychology major and Human Development minor, Heidi will also earn an Elementary Education certificate before graduating in May.

She will be honored for her academic achievement on the NESCAC Fall All-Academic Team when it is formally announced next week.
