Senior midfielder Greta Ell (Plains, Pa.) was named to the 2018 Longstreth/NFHCA Division I All-American Third Team, as announced on Tuesday by the National Field Hockey Coaches Association.

Ell, a second-team All-ACC and first-team All-Region honoree, was one of the co-captains on this year’s squad. She scored three goals this season, with two of them being game winners, and led the team in shots on goal this season. She competed in the Victory Sports Tours/NFHCA Senior Game. In her four-year Cavalier career, she scored 26 goals with five assists for 57 points. This is her first All-American honor.

The 2018 Longstreth/NFHCA Division I All-American teams are made up of 48 student-athletes with 27 first-time honorees, 13 second-time honorees, seven third-time honorees and one student-athlete, Louisville goalkeeper Ayeisha McFerran, who was recognized for the fourth time.

This is the 54th All-American honor earned by a Cavalier and the 13th-consecutive year that at least one Virginia player has been named to an All-American team.
