FARRAR NAMED TO ALL-NESCAC FIELD HOCKEY SECOND TEAM
LEWISTON, Maine Bates College junior forward Johie Farrar of West Paris, Maine, has been named to the All-New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) field hockey second team.
Farrar, who was an All-New England East region selection in 1999, led the 2-11 Bobcats with 12 goals and 24 points this season. Her 12 goals were the most by a Bates player in more than a decade and ranked her second among NESCAC goal-scorers. Farrar was also fifth in the conference with 24 points.
Farrar scored goals in eight of Bates' 13 contests this season, including a school-record four goals in the first half of a 5-4 loss to Tufts Sept. 29. She also scored both tallies in the Bobcats' 2-0 conference win over Trinity Sept. 22. Farrar recorded one other multi-goal game this season, scoring twice in Bates' 6-3 loss at New England College to start the season Sept. 8.
"Johie had a phenomenal season this year," said Bates head coach Wynn Hohlt. "Her speed and agility on the field are tough for other teams to contain. Everyone on the team is excited for her to be recognized by the conference."
Farrar is a 1999 graduate of Oxford Hills High School. She is the daughter of Timothy and Beverly Farrar, West Paris, Maine.
