Hibbad, Fortin, Speed, Page, and Hopkins All Recognized by the NAC

BANGOR, Maine – Leah Hibbad, Taylor Fortin, Alex Speed, Maddie Page, and Jordyn Hopkins have all earned All-NAC accolades, the league announced Monday morning.

Leah Hibbad, who was named to the All-NAC First Team, received her third career All-Conference nod. She recorded her 50th goal, 100th point, and currently sits third in goals (54) and points (126) on the women's soccer career ranks. The senior forward has tallied 21 goals (three being game winning goals) and nine assists for 51 total points this season, becoming the fourth ever player to surpass the 50-point mark. The Portsmouth, R.I. native recorded seven or more points in three games during the 2017 campaign. Newbury College (8), Lyndon (11), and Green Mountain (7) were the three opponents. Hibbad has led the Eagles to a quarterfinals victory over Maine Maritime and a semifinal match-up with Colby Sawyer this Tuesday.

Taylor Fortin, a Second Team honoree, is having, statically, the best season of her four-year career. The senior midfielder recorded her 50th career point by scoring two goals in the NAC quarterfinal win over Maine Maritime Academy. Fortin has netted six goals and assisted on four others for a point total of 16 for the 2017 season. The Goffstown, N.H. native recorded three points against Johnson, four against Lyndon, and four points in the quarterfinal game against MMA for her three best games of the season. Fortin will look to continue her postseason success at Colby-Sawyer this Tuesday.

Alex Speed collected an All-NAC Second Team award for being a vital part of the Eagles' defense. The junior defender has started all 15 games this season, while playing virtually every minute of all 15. Speed also scored the first goal of her career. The goal came on September 30th at home against Lyndon. The Guilford, Maine native will look to keep the Chargers off the board when Husson travels to New Hampshire to play #1 Colby-Sawyer.

Maddie Page, the anchor of the defense, garnered Second Team honors this season. The Hermon, Maine native played in all 15 games while playing a key role in offense and defense. Page is well-known for her ability to flip throw the ball into the box. The senior defender recorded a goal at Green Mountain and an assist against Johnson. Page will look to continue the Eagles' postseason run with a semifinal game at Colby-Sawyer.

Jordyn Hopkins earned a spot on the Sportsmanship Team. The Eagles' coaching staff and teammates made it known that they think Hopkins embodies what a student athlete should model on and off the field.
