Turlings, Salvatore earn All-NCAC accolades

Earlham field hockey's All-NCAC selections


RICHMOND, Ind. – Senior midfielder Maite Turlings and sophomore forward Sofia Salvatore were Earlham College's two honorees on the All-North Coast Athletic Conference (NCAC) field hockey teams, which were unveiled Friday.

Both were Second Team All-NCAC selections.

Salvatore led Earlham field hockey and was tied for seventh in the NCAC with 24 points in 2018, after charting nine goals and six assists in her sophomore campaign. Four of her goals were game-winners against Wilson, Oberlin (twice), and Transylvania. Through two seasons in Maroon and White, Salvatore has recorded 13 goals and six assists for 32 points. This was Salvatore's first All-NCAC award.

Turlings, who earned All-NCAC honors for the third time in her career, notched seven goals and seven assists for 21 points during the 2018 season. She recorded the game-winning goal in Earlham's 1-0 win over DePauw, and converted Earlham's only successful penalty stroke during the season in the Quakers' 4-0 win over Oberlin. Turlings finished her career with 20 goals and 18 assists for 58 points. She previously earned Second Team All-NCAC honors in 2016, and was a First Team selection in 2017.

Earlham field hockey posted an 8-11 overall record under second-year Head Coach Emily Girasole, with a 4-10 ledger in the NCAC. The eight wins were the most for Earlham field hockey since back-to-back 9-9-1 seasons in 1992 and 1993.

Among the Quaker victories were wins over conference foe Wittenberg, Earlham's first win over the Tigers since 1992, and a Senior Day triumph over DePauw that was the program's first over the Yellow and Black since 1993.
