Ellis Repeats as Regional Player of the Year

November 19, 2012

Greencastle, Ind. – DePauw senior forward Margaret Ellis (St. Louis, Mo./Whitfield), the Tigers' all-time leader in career goals and points, has been named the Longstreth/National Field Hockey Coaches Association Division III Great Lakes Region Player of the Year for the second straight year.

The 2011 second team all-America selection led DePauw to the NCAA Division III semifinals for the first time in program history and a 21-2 record along the way, Ellis was named to the NCAA Division III Championship all-tournament team yesterday after the Tigers dropped a 2-0 semifinal decision to eventual national champion Tufts.

Last week she was named to the all-region first team for the third straight year and earned her second straight North Coast Athletic Conference Offensive Player of the Year honor after collecting a similar accolade in the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference in 2010.

Ellis led the Tigers with 27 goals this season and was second with 10 assists for a team-high 64 points. Her single-season goals and points totals rank second in school history.

Earlier this year she broke DePauw's 25-year-old career records for goals and points, held by Colleen Konicek. Ellis finished her career with 75 goals and 172 points.
