12-03_locarno_1Milton alumna Chelsey Locarno ’08 is one of 10 individuals from the Yale field hockey team named this year to the NFHCA National Academic Squad. The Ivy League champion team has been excelling both on the field and in the classroom, as recognized recently by the National Field Hockey Coaches Association. As a team, the Bulldogs earned the NFHCA National Academic Team Award for the 2011 season.

The National Academic Squad recognizes individual student-athletes who have achieved a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.30 through the first semester of the 2011–2012 academic year. Chelsey has been named a member of the National Academic Squad three times.

The Bulldogs have earned the National Academic Team Award in each of their seven seasons under head coach Pam Stuper. The award is presented to all field hockey teams that maintained a GPA of 3.0 or higher for the fall of 2011.

In addition to this academic success, the Bulldogs had a great 2011 season. The women finished their season 11–6 overall and 6–1 in Ivy League play to earn a share of the Ivy title—Yale’s first Ivy League title since 1980—with Princeton.
