Three Hamilton College athletes were selected for the 2017 Longstreth/National Field Hockey Coaches Association Division III All-Region Team on Wednesday, Nov. 29.

2017 NFHCA Division III All-Region Team

Michaela Giuttari '20 (Warwick, R.I./Loomis Chaffee School) and Julia Booth '19 (Greenwich, Conn./Greenwich Academy) made the first team, and Margaret Revera '18 (Miller Place, N.Y./Miller Place HS) was placed on the second team in the New England West Region. A total of 32 athletes were honored in that region.

Giuttari has been all-region twice as she was on the second team in 2016. The forward finished with 18 goals and 39 points in 15 games -- all of them starts. 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, who was on the all-NESCAC first team, 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 on the all-region first team last year at goalie as well. In 2017 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. She is second all-time at Hamilton with seven career shutouts.

Revera is on the all-region team for the first time. The midfielder was credited with six assists and scored two goals for 10 points in 15 starts. 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 was selected to play in the 2017 National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA) Division III Senior Game.

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, with help from Giuttari and Revera, averaged 3.1 goals per game.
