Kylie Brooks named to All-NEWMAC field hockey team

WESTWOOD, Mass. -- Senior forward Kylie Brooks was named Second Team All-NEWMAC on Wednesday by the New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference, after a stellar senior season that capped an impressive career with the Lyons.

Returning from a torn anterior cruciate ligament injury, which along with the COVID-19 pandemic sidelined her for two seasons, Brooks (Oceanside, Calif.) produced her best season yet with eight goals and five assists, leading the Lyons in both assists and points (21). Brooks tallied 50 points over her three seasons (2018, 2019 and 2022).

"A fast, feisty, and talented forward, Kylie was a force on on both right and left wing," said head coach Andy Whitcomb. "She is tough to defend and exciting to watch carrying the ball up and dodging defenders on her way to goal."

Whitcomb has had an All-NEWMAC player in each of her 25 seasons as Mount Holyoke's head coach. Brooks' award marks the 63rd all-conference honor during Whitcomb's tenure.

A three-game winning streak in the final week saw Brooks and Mount Holyoke finish with a 6-11 overall record and a 1-7 conference mark.
