Ellis and Cutler Earn All-America Honors
November 20, 2012
Greencastle, Ind. - For the first time in school history, DePauw has placed two student-athletes on the Longstreth/National Field Hockey Coaches Association Division III All-America Teams.
Senior forward Margaret Ellis (St. Louis, Mo./Whitfield) was named to the first team, while junior midfielder Chelsea Cutler (Victoria, British Columbia/Mt. Douglas Secondary) earned third team honors. The complete teams are available here.
Ellis, the two-time Great Lakes Region Player of the Year, was a second team all-America choice in 2011. She led the Tigers with 27 goals this season and was second with 10 assists for a team-high 64 points. Earlier this year she broke DePauw's 25-year-old career records for goals and points, held by Colleen Konicek and which now stand at 75 goals and 172 points. Ellis also was the North Coast Athletic Conference Offensive Player of the Year each of the last two seasons and a three-time all-Great Lakes Region first team selection.
Cutler (left), the NCAC Defensive Player of the Year this season, is a three-time First Team All-Great Lakes Region choice. She led a DePauw defense this season which paced Division III in both shutouts (15) and goals against average (0.60). The Tigers' 15 shutouts was an NCAC record and equaled the DePauw mark set in 1999. Cutler also scored eight goals and assisted on six this season.
DePauw finished the 2012 season with a school-record 21 wins against just two losses and advanced to the NCAA Division III semifinals for the first time in school history with overtime wins over Utica and top-ranked Middlebury.
