Field hockey goalie Tori Redding ’13 was named a National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA) second-team All-American on Monday, adding to her already impressive list of postseason accomplishments. She is the second Wes fall athlete to be named All-America so far, as volleyball libero (and WesCeleb) Ruby Hernandez ’11 was earlier named an American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) Honorable-Mention All-American.
Tori had been named first-team all-NESCAC this season and was also an NFHCA New England West Region First-Team All-Star. She ranked second in the NESCAC with an .826 save percentage and had four 10-save games, including 15 in a 2-1 loss at eventual national champion Bowdoin. She finished the season with a 1.51 goals-against average and averaged 7.27 saves per game as Wesleyan went 10-5 and 5-4 in NESCAC play, its best showings in both departments since 2005 (11-5, 5-4). Tori now has six career shutouts to her credit–including 1-0 wins over Williams and Trinity this past season–and has started all 30 games over her two years here, playing all but 35 minutes in net overt those two seasons.
Ruby, who holds the school records for digs in a match (43), season (580), and career (1,933), earned her second straight AVCA Honorable-Mention All-America honor. She was named second-team all-NESCAC this fall and also received all-NESCAC honors in 2009, having been named NESCAC Defensive Player of the Year following both seasons. She repeated as an AVCA all-New England selection and was chosen for the New England Women’s Volleyball Association (NEWVA) all-senior team. Ruby had 30 digs in a 3-1 win over Eastern Connecticut, a victory that gave head coach Gale Lackey her 450th career win.
