Senior Addy Zandi (West Chester, Pa./B. Reed Henderson) makes her second appearance on the squad as one of three Red Devils to earn Second-team honors this fall. Zandi earned her second straight First-team All-Centennial Conference honor and is a three-time selection to the Centennial Conference Academic Honor Roll.
Zandi was second on the team in scoring with seven goals and eight assists. She ranks eighth in program history with 17 career assists, netting 16 career goals as well. After battling with injury in her rookie season she became a three-year starter for the Red Devils.
First-year Meg Tate (Carlisle, Pa./Carlisle) was a unanimous decision as the Centennial Conference Rookie of the Year and was also named First-team All-Conference, leading the league in goals and points. She finished the year second in program history for single season goals with 20 and third in points with 44. Tate broke the conference record for the fastest goal to start a game, scoring just 11 seconds into the match at Bryn Mawr. She recorded two hat-tricks, including one in the conference semifinals. She tallied a point in eight straight games, scoring multiple goals on five occasions.
Sophomore Carli Boyer (Silver Spring, Md./Bethesda-Chevy Chase) was named the Second-team goaltender, following a record-breaking year in the nets.

She filled the role nicely, replacing Mary Katherine Brosnan '19 in the nets while earning spots on the All-CC and All-Region rosters.
Boyer set a school record with 12 shutouts this fall, posting clean sheets in the final three regular season games and the conference semifinal. She tallied eight saves in a 1-0 setback to #1-ranked Messiah and had another stellar outing in a 1-1 draw at #4-Christopher Newport. Boyer also set the school record with a 0.52 goals-against-average, allowing just 11 goals on the year. She currently holds the top spot in career goals-against as well at 0.56.
First-year Lauren Bracken (Bryn Mawr, Pa./Baldwin School) was a Third-team selection on defense and joins Tate as the only first-years on the All-Region squad. Bracken and Tate become also became the first two rookies to be named First-team All-Centennial in the same season, from the same school in the history of the CC.
The Red Devils allowed just three goals in the conference during the regular season and allowed just 12 on the year overall. They surrendered two goals in a match, just three times this season, posting 12 shutouts and led the conference with a remarkable 0.58 goals against average.
The Red Devils earned seven spots on the All-Centennial Conference team while Tate was named the Rookie of the Year and Ted Zingman was voted the conference Coach of the Year.
