The Haverford College athletic department recently held its annual senior award ceremony, with several honors handed out to student-athletes from this year’s graduating class. Haverford senior Mary Hobbs, a field hockey standout and Tower Hill School graduate, shared the prestigious Varsity Cup with tennis player Kevin Caulfield and cross country star Jordan Schilit.
The Varsity Cup is presented annually to the outstanding athlete or athletes in the senior class.
Hobbs was a team captain and helped guide her team into the championship game of the Centennial Conference’s postseason tournament. It was the second time in three seasons that Haverford earned a spot in the tournament final. Haverford also advanced that far in 2010.
Hobbs was named to the Philadelphia Inquirer academic all-area field hockey team for the second straight year in 2012, and also was named a second team Longstreth/National Field Hockey Coaches Association All-American. She was just the fourth All-American in program history after earning first team NFHCA All-South region honors.
In addition, Hobbs was a first team all-Centennial player in 2012, and she was selected to play in the NFHCA 2012 Senior Game. The Centennial’s fall academic honor roll included Hobbs for the third straight season.
Hobbs led the 2012 Fords in points (41), goals (15) and assists (11), and recorded three game-winning goals, which was second-most on the team. She completed her career with all-time program records in points (171), goals (65), assists (41) and game-winners (12). And she was among the conference's all-time leaders in goals (fourth), assists (fifth) and points (171).
