Debow Nominated for Field Hockey Player of the Year
COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Senior midfielder Christine Debow (West Chester, Pa.) has been nominated for the Broderick award, which is presented to the NCAA field hockey player-of-the-year. The nominating process was done by the NCAA coaches when they voted on the All-America teams. Six other players besides Debow were nominated.
Debow is a three-time first-team All-America selection and a four-time all-ACC pick. She has been named to the Academic All-America team twice and is currently a member of the United States National Team.
Debow ended her career at Maryland with 42 goals and 25 assists. She ranks sixth among Maryland's career leaders in both statistical categories. During the last three seasons, all of which she has been one of the team captains, the Terps have had a combined record of 51-19.
This is the second consecutive year Maryland has had a player nominated for the Broderick award. Last season, Katie Kauffman finished second in the voting behind Cindy Werley of North Carolina.
The voting for the Broderick Award takes place in late January.
