Curtis, Moody Earn A-10 Field Hockey Honors

by | Nov 4, 2021


NEWPORT NEWS, Va. — Davidson’s Izzy Moody and Macy Curtis have earned Atlantic 10 Conference postseason recognition in field hockey, the league announced Thursday.

Moody was named to the All-Academic team, while Curtis earned All-Rookie honors. Both started all 18 games and played key roles for the Wildcats this fall.

Moody, a senior double majoring in computer science and political science, led the Wildcats with 11 points, including four goals and three assists. Two of her scores proved to be game-winners in 2-1 contests at Central Michigan and at home against Saint Louis. She also had a goal and assist at Appalachian State, scored vs. La Salle and assisted on goals against Ohio and Towson.

“Izzy epitomizes Davidson field hockey,” said Davidson coach Zoe Almquist. “She is relentless, resilient and competitive on and off the field. I know I can always count on finding Izzy doing homework on the bus or in the hotel lobby. She is also the first person to check in and ask questions about offseason workouts or during a film session or about a drill. And Izzy is our team social chair, meaning she has kept our team connected and bonded through supporting other teams or dressing up in costumes, or just generally spending time together. She committed her four years at Davidson to learning and growing in all areas of her life, and I couldn’t be more proud to have watched that journey. I cannot think of a more deserving All-Academic team recipient.”

Curtis, a freshman, tied for the team lead with four assists and scored goals against Central Michigan and Lock Haven. She tied for third on the team with eight points and assisted on goals against Hofstra (2), Bellarmine and Ohio.

“Macy had a fabulous breakout season, and I can’t wait to see how her career progresses,” said Almquist. “She worked so hard during the previous year to come in as prepared as possible for her freshman campaign, and that faith and dedication paid off. She has fabulous hands, great vision, is a fierce competitor and is a true student of the game. Macy contributed in our midfield and forward line this year, and I expect her to continue to grow over the next three years.”
