Jaffe named field hockey All-American

HAVERFORD, Pa. – Senior defender Roxanne Jaffe has been named a Third-Team 2011 Longstreth/National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA) All-American becoming Haverford College's third all-American in the history of the program.

Last week Jaffe was named first-team NFHCA All-South Region for the third straight year and is a three-time first-team All-Centennial Conference selection. She scored a career-best seven goals during the 2011 season and added five assists for a total of 19 points, third-most for the Fords. One of Jaffe's two game-winning goals this fall came in Haverford's 2-1 regular season come-from-behind victory at Washington College in the second-to-last game in the regular season.

Jaffe exits the program as its career leader in converted penalty strokes (8) and games played (75). She ranks second all-time in assists with 28 to her credit and her 74 points stands fifth on the career points list.

The Fords' initial all-American selection in field hockey was Tracy Kyger who gained the honor after her senior season at Haverford in 1993. Last year Alex Waleko '11 become just the second all-American in program history.
