Penn State Field Hockey’s Sophia Gladieux Named NFHCA Mideast Player Of The Year

For the second year in a row, Penn State field hockey’s Sophia Gladieux took home the National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA) Mideast Player of the Year award.

This is just the latest award in a decorated season for the junior. Gladieux has already earned first-team all-Mideast, first-team all-Big Ten, Big Ten Player of the Year, and Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year honors this season. Following the NCAA Tournament, she was also named to the NCAA All-Tournament team.

Gladieux finished the season with a team-high 23 goals, bringing her career total up to 53 goals. This puts Gladieux at ninth on Penn State’s all-time goals-scored list.

After a 17-4 record, the Nittany Lions ended their season with a loss to North Carolina in the semi-finals of the NCAA Tournament. The team will be back next fall in their brand-new stadium, which will feature 450 more seats than its current setup.
