By on November 19, 2014

Cocalico graduate and Syracuse University senior Jordan Page was one of five members of the No. 4 Orange field hockey team to earn 2014 Longstreth/NFHCA Division I All-Mideast Region accolades, the NFHCA announced on Monday morning.

Page was selected to the Second Team as a back. Graduate student forward Kati Nearhouse, junior midfielder Alyssa Manley, junior forward Emma Russell, and freshman midfielder Lieke Visser all received First Team All-Mideast Region honors.

It was Page’s second straight All-Mideast Region selection. She has proven to be a star on both ends of the pitch for the Orange. She has 30 points on eight goals and 14 assists for the 2014 season. The Cocalico graduate serves as one of the team’s stick stoppers and penalty stroke options. On the other end of the pitch, Page has helped the back line to three shutouts on the year.
