Earning first team status was Ohio State junior Aisling Coyle, who was a unanimous choice for Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year and was recently named the NFHCA West Region Player of the Year. Coyle led the team with 55 points on 24 goals through 23 games. It is the seventh time in program history a Buckeye has earned First Team All-American honors.
Second Team All-America honors went to Northwestern's Chelsea Armstrong and Penn State's Kelsey Amy and Ayla Halus. The two were both named first team All-Big Ten members earlier this month and were also named to the NFHCA Mideast Region Team. After earning this year's Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year and first team All-Big Ten, Armstrong was named to the NFHCA West Region Team.
Finally, five Big Ten student-athletes were named third team All-Americans as Michigan's Paige Laytos, Rachael Mack and Meredith Way, Ohio State's Berta Queralt and Penn State's Jessica Longstreth earned postseason recognition by the NFHCA. The Michigan trio joins Queralt as members of the NFHCA All-West Region Team, while Longstreth was placed on the NFHCA Mideast Team.
