Miele Selected To All-GNAC First Team

WINTHROP, Mass. – Making Johnson & Wales field hockey program history, sophomore forward Jillian Miele (Wilmington, Mass.) was named to the Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) first team, announced Tuesday afternoon.

Ranked 10th amongst the nation's leaders in points per game (2.68), Miele became the first field hockey player to earn all-conference first team recognition. Leading the conference in goals (21) and points (51), the Wilmington, Massachusetts native inked her name in the GNAC record books. In the Wildcats' first round game against Simmons, Miele surpassed the previous conference record for goals and points by a sophomore, registering three goals for six points. Midway through the season in convincing, 7-0 win over non-conference Dean, Miele tallied a career single-game best four goals for eight points. 

Junior midfielder Kerrianne Fagan (Bellingham, Mass.) was named to the GNAC All-Sportsmanship Team.
