Bloomington, Ind. - Redshirt senior Morgan Fleetwood and sophomore Audra Heilman were named 2012 Longstreth/NFHCA All-West Region honorees, announced by the National Field Hockey Coaches Association on Thursday, Nov. 15. Fleetwood picked up first team honors, while Heilman was voted to the All-West Region second team.
Head Coach Amy Robertson was happy to see such deserving athletes receive this type of recognition.
“Morgan and Audra have had the greatest impact on the team’s success this year and have been our most consistent performers,” said Robertson. “It is very fitting and deserving that they are recognized as top players in our region, as they have both worked very hard, possess great talent and compete in every drill, practice and game.
“This recognition is just the icing on the cake for Morgan’s stellar career and for Audra, who is only a sophomore, this is only the beginning of great things to come.”
Fleetwood ended her career at Indiana as the Hoosiers’ all-time career goals leader with 44. In her career, Fleetwood also tallied a program best 115 points and 306 shots, and her 14 game-winning goals as a Hoosier ties the top mark in the IU record books.
The Freeburg, Pa. native capped off her career with an impressive senior campaign; Fleetwood, who garnered All-Big Ten first team honors this season, set program season records in both points (38) and shots (94). She also matched the program mark for game-winning goals in a season (6) as well as assists (12). In Indiana’s 4-0 win over Villanova on Oct. 21, she recorded her first career hat trick to become just one of just six Hoosiers in program history to accomplish such a feat.
Heilman earns her first NFHCA postseason award after a notable 2012 season. The second team All-Big Ten selection scored three goals on 38 shots for the Hoosiers. Her five assists this year is a not only a season high for Heilman, but it also brings her career total to nine for the 13th
most on the all-time career list.
