Three IU Field Hockey players received Big Ten Honors on Wednesday.

Seniors Kate Barber and Mollie Getzfread as well as sophomore Noëlle Rother were recognized for their play in the 2016 season.

Barber and Rother received 2016 All-Big Ten First Team awards for their contributions to the Hoosier’s offensive line and defensive unit.

Barber netted 18 goals, tallied four assists and recorded 40 points in the season. She also broke IU’s single-season scoring and points records.

In 17 games played, Rother totaled 97 saves and had a save percentage of 0.75 per game.

This is the second consecutive year Barber has received this honor and Rother's first after a second team selection last season.

Getzfread received the 2016 All-Big Ten Second Team award and was named as a Sportsmanship Award Honoree.

She scored her first career goal this season and had eight assists for total of 10 points in 19 games.
