GILBERT, Ariz. – Denison sophomore Michelle Kabaira was named the Division III Great Lakes Region Player of the Year on Monday morning by Longstreth and the National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA). Since the award's inception in 2009, Kabaira is the first Big Red player to receive the honor and the third-straight recipient from the North Coast Athletic Conference.

Following her second-consecutive All-Great Lakes Region first-team selection, Kabaira locked up the award after anchoring a Denison defense that posted 11 shutouts in 2018 and helped log the seventh-lowest goals-against average in the country at 0.65.

Holding the opposition to less than five shots in 12 contests this season, the Harare, Zimbabwe native was also named the NCAC's Defensive Player of the Year for the second-straight season while racking up all-conference first-team honors in back-to-back campaigns.

An NFHCA second-team All-American in 2017, Kabaira tallied three goals and one assist during her second season in Granville, including a game-winning goal against Kenyon on Oct. 3.

The Big Red finished 2018 with an undefeated record (14-0) in conference play for the third time in program history. Also posting an 18-3 overall record, DU advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the second-consecutive season.
