NORFOLK, Va. - (Nov. 22) The Old Dominion University field hockey team placed three players on the 1999 AstroTurf/NFHCA Division I All-American team, as announced Monday by the National Field Hockey Coaches Association.

Juinor Marina DiGiacomo (Mendoza, Argetina) was the lone Lady Monarch on the first team while senior Kim Miller (Virginia Beach, Va.) and sophomore Adrienne Yoder (Coopersburg, Pa.) were named to the third team.
