Trinity College field hockey junior defender Sophie Doering of Darien was named to the 2013 New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) All-Conference First Team.

Doering scored a team-high four goals and added two assists for 10 points (second on the team) while starting all 15 games on the Trinity backline.

A two-year starter in Trinity's defensive backfield, Doering had one defensive save in 2012 and tied for the team lead with two this fall.

Doering is a two-time member of the National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA) All-Academic Squad. An English Literature major at Trinity, she is the daughter of Amy and Peter Doering.

Trinity, led by 13-year coach Anne Parmenter, finished the 2013 season with an 8-7 record and qualified for the NESCAC Championship Tournament for the ninth time and the sixth year in a row with a 5-5 league mark.

The No. 6-seeded Bantams lost to Bowdoin 6-1 in the NESCAC quarterfinals.
