CHANDLER, Ariz. -- University of Michigan junior Rachael Mack (Bromsgrove, England/Bromsgrove School) was named to the 2012 Longstreth/National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA) Division I All-America second team, the NFHCA announced today (Tuesday, Nov. 20). It is Mack's third All-America honor, adding to a pair of third team selections.
The Wolverines' scoring leader for the third straight season, Mack tallied career highs in goals (19), assists (7) and points (45). She posted five multi-goal efforts, including her fifth career hat trick in U-M's 6-2 win over Saint Louis (Sept. 15). The Wolverine junior registered a career-long 10-game scoring streak through the heart of the season, scoring 15 goals and three assists over the stretch. Mack also tallied at least one point in 16 of Michigan's 22 games this year.
Mack is a three-time All-Big Ten honoree, earning unanimous first team selection this season, and a three-time NHCA All-West Region pick. After three years in Ann Arbor, she owns 52 goals and 118 points. She ranks third all-time among U-M's career goal leaders and fourth in points.
Mack is one of nine Wolverines to earn multiple All-America honors and becomes just the third player in program history to garner three citations, joining Kelli Gannon (1998, '99, 2000) and April Fronzoni (2000, '02, '03).
Michigan (15-7, 4-2 Big Ten) concluded the 2012 campaign with its 11th NCAA Tournament appearance in 14 seasons. The Wolverines shared second place in the Big Ten regular-season standings and advanced to the Big Ten Tournament final for the 11th time in program history.
