NEW YORK -- A trio of Old Dominion field hockey players earned All-Big East honors, including First Team selections Danielle Grega and Erin Huffman, the Big East office announced on Thursday.

In addition, Julia Van Dorsten was named to the Second Team.

Grega, a senior midfielder from Pennsylvania, lands on the All-Big East First Team for the second consecutive season. She currently ranks second on the team in scoring with seven goals and five assists. Grega, a former member of the U.S. U-21 National Team, was one of just six unanimous First Team selections.

Huffman, a sophomore forward from Pennsylvania, leads the Monarchs in scoring with 11 goals, which is also tied for fifth in the conference. Huffman has tallied two game-winning goals on the season, including the game-winner in overtime against Big East foe Villanova. 

Van Dorsten, a senior midfielder from the Netherlands, immediately made her impact felt in her lone season at ODU, after transferring in as a graduate student. For the season, Van Dorsten has totaled two goals and eight assists, which ranks second on the team.
