MORRISVILLE, N.Y. – The North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) announced its 2017 All-Conference Field Hockey Team Wednesday, naming four from Morrisville State to its first team, as voted by league coaches.

In nine games overall on the season, Leva posted at least one score, recording a single game high three goals against Wells College.

She is currently ranked fourth overall in the NEAC with 22 points.
Kellum again served as an offensive threat for opponents on the year, posting three goals and assisting another five for 11 points. Her ability to transition the ball down the sideline created several offensive opportunities that the Mustangs capitalized on in their offensive attack.
