Oak Bay’s Maddie Secco

Oak Bay athlete Stanford all-star

National team field hockey player Maddie Secco of Oak Bay has been named to the conference and regional all-star teams

National team field hockey player Maddie Secco of Oak Bay has been named to the conference and regional all-star teams for her part in the Stanford Cardinals exceptional National Collegiate Athletic Association Div. 1 season.

On Tuesday Secco was named to the All-Region Second Team by regional members of the National Field Hockey Coaches Association.

Secco is one of four Stanford players to be named to the All-Region First and Second teams.

It’s the first All-Region award for Secco, who was named to the 2013 NorPac West All-Conference and NorPac All-Tournament teams last week.

One of Stanford’s best stick-handlers, Secco helped run the team’s powerful offence, which outscored opponents 57-19 this season.

Secco brings in the award despite having missed three of the team’s 21 games to compete with Team Canada at the Pan American Cup this fall, helping Canada win bronze.

Stanford finished the season 16-5 and won its fifth consecutive NorPac West regular season title and appeared in its eighth straight NorPac Championship final.
