November 17, 2003

AMHERST, MA - Amherst College senior captains Christine Ryan (Summit, NJ/Kent Place) and Molly Jacobs (Providence, RI/Lincoln School) and sophomore midfielder Katherine Skrivan (St. Louis, MO/Clayton) were named STX Division III All-New England West Region by the National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA) on Monday. Ryan was a first-team selection, while Jacobs and Skrivan earned second-team honors.

Ryan, a Second-Team All-NESCAC pick in 2003, finished the season sixth in the conference in assists per game (0.50) and tied for 15th in points per game (1.13). She was also a Second-Team All-NESCAC and Second-Team STX/NFHCA Division III All-New England West Region selection as a junior, tying for the team lead in scoring with eight points on three goals and two assists. As a sophomore, Ryan was Amherst’s third leading scorer with 14 points on five goals and four assists, as the Jeffs advanced to the NESCAC Postseason Championship Tournament title game. She was one of just four players from the NESCAC named to the Division III North Senior All-Star Team, selected by the National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA). Selected student-athletes will participate in the 2003 NFHCA Division III North/South Senior All-Star Game on Saturday, November 22 at 10 a.m. at Lebanon Valley College in Annville, Penn.

Jacobs, a First-Team All-NESCAC selection, was instrumental in an Amherst defense that posted four shutouts and held opponents to one goal or less in eight out of 16 games. She finished the season 20th in the nation in defensive saves per game (0.375), and her lone assist came on the game-winning goal in a dramatic 3-2 win over then 19th-ranked Colby College.

Skrivan had a breakout season for the Lord Jeffs, leading the team with seven goals and finishing 14th in the NESCAC in goals per game (0.44) and tying for 19th in points per game (0.94). She earned Co-NESCAC Player of the Week honors after scoring the deciding goal in a 3-0 win over then 17th-ranked Springfield, and the tying goal in a 2-1 overtime win over then fifth-ranked Bowdoin. With the pair of wins, Amherst improved to 6-0 overall and 3-0 in conference play and pierced the national rankings for the first time at No. 13 in the STX/NFHCA Coaches Poll.
