Miller, Rinaca claim All-American honors

CHANDLER, Ariz. – The honors continue to roll in for the Salisbury University field hockey team off its NCAA championship weekend appearance. This week the National Field Hockey Coaches Association announced its Division III All-Americans and Salisbury seniors Hannah Miller and Becca Rinaca claimed the honor.

Miller was named to the second team, and Rinaca to the third team, with each accolade being the first All-American for each player.

Miller scored a goal and added seven assists out of the midfield, and helped the defense to the top goals-against average in the country, surrendering just 0.55 goals per game.

Rinaca was good for 15 goals from her forward position, while adding one assist for 32 points, which tied for second on the team.

The Sea Gulls won the program's 20th Capital Athletic Conference title in 2016 to earn an automatic bid into the NCAA tournament – the program's 32nd appearance. Salisbury claimed two tournament wins to get to the championship weekend for the 14th time in school history.
