Kronick, Nagourney Named NSCAA Scholar All-Americans
BALTIMORE, MD - Seniors Hannah Kronick and Emily Nagourney were named to 2014 NSCAA Women's College Division Scholar All-American Teams. Kronick was a first team selection while Nagourney was tabbed to the third team. To be nominated, a student-athlete must have at least a 3.30 cumulative grade point average (on a 4.0 scale) throughout his or her career; start more than 50 percent of all games and be a significant contributor to the team; and be nominated by an institution that is a current NSCAA College Services member.
For Kronick this is her second selection to the NSCAA Scholar All-American team. She finished her career as the all-time leading scorer in Johns Hopkins and Centennial Conference history, notching 82 goals, 36 assists and 200 points. She was also named the Centennial Conference Player of the Year for the third straight season after finishing the season with 17 goals, seven assists and 41 points. Kronick became the first player in conference history to be a four-time first team all-conference selection.
Additionally, the Westfield, N.J. native was honored for her classwork, as she was also named third-team CoSIDA Academic All-American for the second straight year. Kronick is a member of the Dean's list and sports a 3.47 cumulative GPA. She will graduate in May with a degree in International Studies. She has also volunteered with the Kickin' It With College Kids, an annual event run by the Hopkins women's soccer team designed to bring the opportunity if playing soccer to children with mental or physical disabilities.
Meanwhile, her classmate and teammate Nagourney garnered her second straight honor, as well. A two-time team captain, Nagourney carries a 3.41 cumulative GPA as a natural science major with a concentration in biology. During her final season, she was named Second Team All-Centennial Conference, First Team All-Mid-Atlantic region, and was named to the Division III Women's Soccer National Championship Round All-Tournament team. The three-year starter anchored a backline that allowed 0.64 goals per game in 2014 en route to an NCAA Final Four run.
Away from the field and classroom, Nagourney was a research assistant at the USC Keck School of Medicine in the summer of 2013, working in a lab studying the TK1 and TK2 expression and activity. For the past three school years she has worked in the Laboratory of Auditory Neurophysiology in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Nagourney has also traveled internationally with Global Medical Brigades, a Johns Hopkins group that traveled to Panama supporting physicians, dentists and pharmacists in providing care to the community.
Hopkins finished the 2014 season 19-4-2 and advancing to the National Semifinals, before falling 1-0 to Williams College. The semifinal appearance was the first in program history.
