BALTIMORE, MD - Johns Hopkins senior Hannah Kronick and sophomore Ana Bengoechea were both named to the D3Soccer.com Second Team All-America Team in a release made by the organization. This adds to the postseason accolades the tandem has earned after they were both named to the NSCAA/Continental Tire NCAA Division III All-America teams, as well as First Team Centennial Conference. The teams were chosen by the D3Soccer.com staff, Division III soccer coaches and sports information directors from a field of over 300 nominations.
This is the third D3Soccer.com All-America honor for Kronick, who finished her career as the all-time leading scorer in Johns Hopkins and Centennial Conference history, finishing with 82 goals, 36 assists and 200 points.

The New Jersey native became the first player in conference history to be a four-time first team all-conference selection.
