NFHCA Tabs Cousoulis to All-America Second Team

WASHINGTON – The Catholic University of America senior field hockey standout Kelly Cousoulis may need a bigger trophy room. She added to her impressive career on Wednesday as Longstreth and the National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA) tabbed her to its All-America Second Team.

It is the second All-America accolade garnered by Cousoulis in the past three days after her Synapse Sports nod, and the third All-American award in her Catholic University career.

Cousoulis becomes the 10th NFHCA All-American award recipient in program history and first since Tarah Portland in 2015. Her second-team honor is the Catholic's highest since Maura Campbell made the first team in 2014.

The Fairfield, N.J., native was recognized last week as National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA) First Team All-South Atlantic Region honoree for the second-straight season and also boasts back-to-back Landmark Conference Defensive Player of the Year awards.

Continuing with the double-dips, Cousoulis is also a first-team all-conference player for the second-consecutive year. The backline player helped Catholic to a 1.55 GAA average and six shutouts with five defensive saves.

The 2017 Landmark Senior Scholar Athlete, she also had two assists on the seasons and garnered Landmark Athlete of the Week honors this year. Cousoulis also earned a selection to the NFHCA Senior Game.
