CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Junior Kyla Cordrey and senior Elizabeth Jacobson have earned spots on the 2015 Longstreth/NFHCA Division I All-Northeast Region second team, as announce by the National Field Hockey Coaches Association Monday.
With Cordrey and Jacobson's selections, Harvard has two all-region honorees for the first time since Carly Dickson '12 and Georgia McGillivray '12 were both second team choices in 2009. Cordrey is also the first two time choice since Dickson in 2010 and 2011.
Cordrey is making her second-straight appearance on the all-region second team, following another outstanding defensive campaign. She is a three-time All-Ivy League honoree, including a second team nod this year. Cordrey led a Harvard back line that held opponents to 110 shots on goal, 31 less than the Crimson had this season, and just 34 goals against, a 2.0 goals per game average. She was a fearless player, serving as the flier during defensive penalty corner situations for Harvard.

Jacobson's dominant senior season already includes first team All-Ivy League honors. The Branchburg, New Jersey native racked up 13 goals this season, matching her combined total from the first three years of her career. Her 13 goals, which matched Marissa Balleza for the team-lead and was fifth-most in the conference, tied for fourth-most in a single season in program history, while her 30 total points tied for fifth-most in a single season. Paired with Balleza, they become the first duo to each have over 30 points in a single season in a Harvard uniform. Jacobson also had a knack for the clutch goal, posting five game-winners this year, trailing only Shelley Maasdorp's '05 nine in 2004 for the program record. Jacobson's career tally of 66 points ranks ninth all-time in Harvard history.
