December 2, 2008

CHANDLER, Az. -- Ro Dixon (Ardmore, Pa./Country Day Sacred Heart) was named to the 2008 Longstreth/NFHCA Division III All-American third team.

Following in footsteps of Andi Snyder (2001), Stephanie Roselle (2003), Jamie Punyko (2005), and Jayme Dinsmore (2006). Dixon is the fifth Cardinal field hockey player to earn All-American status since 1969.  All five were selected to the third team.

Senior Ro Dixon was named the Landmark Conference Defensive Player of the Year in addition to her first team all-conference accolade before being named by the NFHCA to All-Region First Team status and now to All-American status.  As the defensive mainstay for a team ranked #11 nationally (NCAA) and first in the Landmark in goals against average, Dixon has notched eight defensive saves this season. A balanced player who is key on offensive corners, she also leads the team in goals and ranks tied for first in assists. This year, the senior co-captain was also named to the National Field Hockey Coaches Senior All-Star game in addition to being named Landmark player of the week twice - once on offense and on defense.  Dixon also played in the NFHCA Senior All Star game at Ursinus before the Division III national championship game.
