Springfield, Mass. - October 4, 2018 - Springfield College's Taylor Conley (Yarmouth Port, Mass) was recognized as the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Division III Field Hockey North Offensive Player of the Month for her efforts to begin the 2018 campaign.
Conley had a tremendous start to her junior year as she currently ranks second in the country with 17 goals. She accounted for the game-winning goal in five of Springfield's six wins in the month of October and has three outings with at least six points. Her nine-point outburst in a win over Husson is the second-highest total in Division III field hockey this season.
Thanks to her play, Springfield is off to a 7-3 record, including a 2-1 mark in New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) play. Conley, who is majoring in Physical Therapy, also is fourth in Division III field hockey in goals per game (1.6) and sixth in points per game (3.40).
