Three Hamilton College student-athletes have been selected for the 2017 NESCAC Field Hockey All-Conference Team, which was released on Wednesday, Nov. 8.

2017 Field Hockey All-NESCAC Team

Michaela Giuttari '20 (Warwick, R.I./Loomis Chaffee School) and Julia Booth '19 (Greenwich, Conn./Greenwich Academy) were voted to the first team, and Margaret Revera '18 (Miller Place, N.Y./Miller Place HS) was placed on the second team. A total of 23 athletes were honored on the all-NESCAC team.

Giuttari was the 2016 NESCAC Rookie of the Year. She is second in the conference with 18 goals and third with 39 points. In 10 NESCAC games she scored five goals and added three assists for 13 points. She recorded the game-winning goal in a 3-2 victory at Trinity College on Sept. 16 and in a 2-1 triumph at Bowdoin College on Oct. 14. Giuttari notched two goals in both of those contests. Her goal and point totals this year are the second-highest totals for one season in program history. She is already in fourth place on the team's all-time list with 32 goals and 75 points.

Booth was the 2016 NESCAC Defensive Player of the Year and made the all-conference first team as a goalie. This year she posted a 1.78 goals against average and .709 save percentage with one shutout in 15 starts. Booth played all but 43-plus minutes and finished with a 9-6 record in goal. Her numbers in 10 conference starts (1.70 GAA, .729 save pct.) were slightly better than her overall stats. Booth is second all-time at Hamilton with seven career shutouts.

Revera is on the all-conference team for the first time. The midfielder is eighth in the NESCAC with six assists and she also scored two goals for 10 points. Revera ended up with six points on two goals and two helpers in 10 conference games. She tallied the game-winning goal on a penalty stroke in the Continentals' 3-2 victory at Middlebury College on Sept. 17. Revera wraps up her Hamilton career in fifth place on the all-time assist list with 19. She also scored 10 goals for 39 points in 64 career games, including 62 starts. Revera has been selected to the 2017 National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA) Division III Senior Game roster.

The Continentals finished with a record of 9-6 and tied for third in the NESCAC standings at 6-4. The field hockey team earned the fourth seed for the 2017 conference championship and hosted a quarterfinal for the second year in a row. Nationally ranked No. 20 Hamilton was 15th in the NFHCA Top 20 preseason poll and remained in the rankings for the entire regular season. The Continentals reached as high as No. 8 in the Sept. 19 poll -- the first time the program had ever been ranked in the top 10. Hamilton is second in the NESCAC with 3.1 goals per game.
