Penn field hockey's Corcoran and Hoover named to All-Region team


After an up-and-down season for Penn field hockey, the team saw two players named to the Mid-Atlantic All-Region second-team.  Senior Emily Corcoran and freshman Alexa Hoover were honored after combining for 23 goals and 55 points.

Hoover put together one of the best freshman seasons in Penn's history, claiming the Ivy League scoring title, Ivy League Rookie of the Year and first-team All-Ivy honors.

Corcoran earned All-Region honors for the second time, having previously earned second-team recognition during her junior season.

Hoover will be looked upon to continue her high-scoring ways next fall as the Quakers hope to improve on their 8-9, 3-4 Ivy season.  Penn will graduate their starting goalkeeper Allison Weisenfels, along with two of its top scorers in Corcoran and Alex Iqbal.
