Jordan Schildhaus '15 Honored by NESCAC for 3rd Straight Year, Named Second-Team All-Conference in Women's Hockey
Jordan Schildhaus '15 (#19, photo) was named second-team all-NESCAC for the second year in a row after a vote of the NESCAC coaches following the 2013-14 season. It was the third time Schildhaus has gain NESCAC laurels as she was chosen NESCAC Rookie of the Year following the 2011-12 campaign.
Ranking second on the team in scoring this season with eight goals and 11 assists for 19 points, Schildhaus upped her career totals to 27 goals and 22 assists for 49 points. Two of her goals in 2013-14 were power-play markers and she twice scored game-tying goals for the Cardinals during the team's solid 8-11-6 season. Wesleyan picked up at least one point in the standings against all eight NESCAC rivals with either a win or a tie, the first time since the double-round robin conference format was established that the Cardinals could make that boast. Wesleyan also equaled its highest-ever seed in the NESCAC tournament, securing the fifth seed. In the NESCAC playoffs, Wesleyan fell by a slim 2-1 count to fourth-seeded Bowdoin in the first round.
Wesleyan's eight victories this year was the most by the squad since the 2003-04 season, which also represented the last time the Cardinals qualified for the post-season.
Wesleyan was led in scoring in 2013-14 by Jess Brennan '17, who had nine goals and 12 assists for 21 points. Goalie Laura Corcoran '16 was ranked among the NESCAC leaders for both save percentage (.936) and goals-against average (1.83) this year while posting a 6-5-3 record.
