MANHEIM, PA — Williams College senior Emma Ticknor (Madison, N.J.) participated in the 2019 National Field Hockey Coaches Association Div. III Senior Game played at Spooky Nook Sports Complex on Saturday night.
A First Team All-Conference selection this fall who led Williams in goals (14) and points (34), Ticknor was one of 60 participants in the games, put on in conjunction with Victory Sports Tours. Student-athletes are nominated by their coaches and selected by the NFHCA Senior Game Committee.
Ticknor was a member of "Team 3" coached by Jaime Ginsberg of Smith College and Michael Warari of Vassar College.
"Playing in the Senior All-Star game was an amazing way to end my career," Ticknor said. "It was an honor to play in that game in my Williams uniform, and really fun to play alongside people I've competed against for four years. It was also really special to have Alix (Ephs' head field hockey coach Alix Barrale) and my family there with me. I'm glad to have one last field hockey memory with them after four wonderful years together."
Ticknor's team lost their first game 3-1 but won the second 3-0 with Ticknor scoring one goal and adding an assist.
