Sophie Doering ’15

The Trinity field hockey team, under the direction of 14th-year head coach Anne Parmenter, had one of its most successful seasons in recent memory. The Bantams finished the year with a 13-4 overall record and entered the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) Championship Tournament as the No. 3 seed with an 8-2 mark in league play. Trinity qualified for the postseason tournament for the 10th time and the ninth year in a row and advanced to the NESCAC Semifinals for the first time since 2011 with a 4-1 victory at home versus Williams in the opening round of the tournament. The 13 victories marked the highest win total for the Bantams since the 2009 campaign when they finished 15-2. It was a season to remember as Trinity captured three of the four major awards bestowed by the league. Parmenter became the first coach in program history to be named the NESCAC Coach of the Year, while senior defender Sophie Doering was named as the league’s defensive player of the year and first-year forward Kelcie Finn was honored as the conference’s rookie of the year. Two other Bantams joined Doering and Finn on the All-NESCAC Team as junior goalkeeper Sophie Fitzpatrick made the First Team and senior midfielder Catherine Read was named to the Second Team. Finn also was honored as the Synapse Sports National Division III Field Hockey Rookie of the Year. Finn, Doering, and Fitzpatrick were each named to the 2014 Longstreth/National Field Hockey Coaches Association Division III All-American First Team and the Synapse Sports Division III All-American Teams.
