Last week, the National Field Hockey Coaches Association recognized 138 Division III student-athletes as Scholars of Distinction. First-year Allie Patterson was one of the 138 scholars recognized by the NFHCA.
Patterson, a York (Pa.) native, is a corporate communications major. She appeared in seven games as a reserve forward for the Blue Jays, who went 11-7 and lost in the semi-finals of the Landmark playoffs to Juniata College. Patterson made her debut for the Blue Jays on Aug. 29 against Franklin & Marshall College in a 1-0 loss to the Diplomats. She recorded her first shot on Oct. 21 in a 12-0 win over Ferrum College.
Patterson was recognized as a Scholar of Distinction after achieving a cumulative grade point average of 3.90 or higher through the first semester of the 2014-2015 academic year. She is one of seven players from the Landmark Conference to be recognized as a Scholar of Distinction by the NFHCA.
Patterson will be one of nine returners for the Blue Jays next fall as the team graduates nine seniors from this past season’s roster.
