Field hockey star ends senior season with major individual honor.
Sachem East alum and Michigan senior Katie Trombetta has had a legendary career both in high school and now college. Already named Big Ten Player of the Year and Big Ten Tournament MVP, Trombetta was named First Team All-American this week.
From the University of Michigan Athletic Department:
Trombetta, who previously earned NFHCA All-America third-team recognition last season, is the 11th different U-M player to garner first-team honors in program history and the second in three seasons. A primary striker on U-M’s corner unit, she recorded four goals and a career-best 11 assists this season. As the Wolverines’ field general, Trombetta anchored a defensive unit that posted a 0.81 goals-against average and just 7.46 shots allowed per game. She also was named the 2017 Big Ten Player of the Year and Big Ten Tournament MVP, and earned unanimous All-Big Ten first-team honors.
