A Message from @AU_FieldHockey Coach Steve Jennings

I hope this email finds you well, and that you all had a wonderful start to 2018. As you know, we finished our season back in November with a 13-6 record. While it was disappointing to end the year without a championship, we are proud of the team's efforts and know that while we fell short, we gave it everything we had. The team was recognized for our strength with several awards placing a league-high of six student-athletes on the All-Patriot League First and Second Teams, including three major award winners. Rafaela Rubas was named PL Offensive Player of the Year while Noor Coenen was named Rookie of the Year. Maura Jacobs also became the fourth consecutive American University field hockey player to be selected as the Corvias Patriot League Scholar-Athlete of the Year. In addition to league recognition, we also had three players earn Regional All-American honors: Rafaela Rubas, Noor Coenen, and Haley Bowcutt. The team also just completed the fall semester with a 3.59 cumulative grade point averaging, upholding our long tradition of academic excellence!

We cannot thank each of you enough for your continued support of AUFH. We loved seeing so many of you this season and can't wait to get everyone back together in the fall!

I hope you'll take a moment to consider giving to the field hockey program. Donations are the foundation of our program, and crucial for our success as a team. No gift is too small, and every gift makes a difference. If you're interested in donating, there are multiple options, including a direct contribution that you can make online by following this link.

Thank you so much!
