The Denison field hockey team had four athletes named to the 2016 All-North Coast Athletic Conference team, highlighted by sophomore Lucy Pearsall receiving NCAC Midfielder of the Year recognition.

Pearsall, the 2015 NCAC Newcomer of the Year, is the first player in the NCAC to be named a Player of the Year following a Newcomer of the Year selection since former Big Red standout Karen Lancaster accomplished the feat in 2001 and 2002. The Chicago, Ill. native earned her second-consecutive appearance on the All-NCAC first team after leading Denison with eight assists and 34 points, while also finishing second on the team with 13 goals. Her point and assist totals were third most in the league, while her 13 goals ranked her fifth in the conference.

Denison's lone senior Abby Martone also earned a spot on the first team, marking her second in three all-conference appearances. A first-team choice in 2014, Martone was tied for second on the team with seven assists, while finishing third in both goals (10) and points (27). The St. Louis, Mo. native also scored three game-winning goals, which included deciding goals in wins over Oberlin and Wooster.

Junior midfielder Jen Durbin made her All-NCAC debut on the second team after registering five goals and three assists while starting all 19 matches this season. Durbin's lone game-winner came in the Big Red's 1-0 victory over Earlham on Oct. 22. She also scored a goal in DU's 2-1 victory over Kenyon that secured the second seed in the NCAC Tournament.

Junior defender Jane Higley rounded out the Big Red honorees with honorable mention laurels. A three-time all-conference selection, Higley started all 19 games on the Denison backline. She helped DU secure seven shutouts this season while also registering an assist. On Oct. 13 at Wittenberg, Higley assisted on the game-tying goal in the Big Red's 2-1 victory over the Tigers.
