NEW HAVEN, Conn. – The Yale field hockey team had five student-athletes honored by the Ivy League Tuesday as the league announced its annual awards. Junior midfielder Bridget Condie (St. Louis, Mo.) earned first team All-Ivy League. First-year midfielder Théodora Dillman (Lancaster, Pa.), junior back Holly Jackson (Glastonbury, England) and sophomore goalkeeper Sydney Terroso (York, Pa.) were named second team All-Ivy. Sophomore midfielder Imogen Davies (Kilmacolm, Scotland) was named honorable mention All-Ivy. This is the most All-Ivy honorees for Yale since the 2011 Ivy League Championship season, when seven Bulldogs were honored.

Condie has now earned All-Ivy honors twice, as she was a second-team selection last season. This season she led the team in points (6-5-17) and assists and tied for the team lead in goals. Three of her goals came in Ivy League games, including the game-winner in Yale's 1-0 win at Cornell Oct. 6.

A member of Pierson College, Condie is a graduate of Mary Institute and St. Louis Country Day School and played for AIM Field Hockey Club. She was a member of USA Field Hockey's U17 National Team in 2014-15.

Dillman established herself as one of the best first-years in the league this season. She tied for the Yale team lead with six goals, the most of any Ivy rookie. A versatile midfielder, she also contributed defensively -- including a defensive save in the 1-0 win at Cornell.

A member of Silliman College, Dillman is a graduate of Conestoga Valley and played for X-Calibur Field Hockey Club. She attended USA Field Hockey's Junior National Camp in 2017. Her mother, Anne Lehman Dillman, is a 1993 Yale graduate and earned All-Ivy honors four times (first team three times, honorable mention once).

This is the first All-Ivy recognition for Jackson, one of Yale's defensive stalwarts for the past three years. She was the Ivy League Defensive Player of the Week after scoring a goal in the Bulldogs' 3-2 win at Brown in the season finale. Thanks to her help, Yale limited its opponent to two goals or fewer in eight of the last nine games.

Jackson is a member of Grace Hopper College and a graduate of Millfield School. There, she captained the field hockey team to a National Indoor Championship and a National Outdoor Independent Schools Championship in 2016 and was voted MVP.

Terroso has now earned All-Ivy honors twice, as she was a first-team selection last year. This season, she posted a .748 save percentage and a 2.12 goals against average while winning 10 games. She allowed one goal or less five times in her final eight appearances. Her season high in saves was 11, in the 4-3 win at Dartmouth and the 2-1 shootout win vs. Columbia.

A member of Davenport College, Terroso is a graduate of Dallastown Area and played for Anne Lehman Dillman with Lanco Premier Field Hockey Club.

This is the second All-Ivy recognition for Davies, who was a second-team pick last year. Yale's inserter on penalty corners, she tied for first on the team in goals (six), finished second on the team in points (15) and tied for second in assists (three).

Back home in Scotland Davies was a U16 and U18 Selection at the District level from the age of 13 up to 17, and was captain at both age groups.  A member of Grace Hopper College at Yale, she is a graduate of St. Columba's.

Yale has now had at least three All-Ivy League honorees in all 14 seasons with Pam Stuper as the team's Caroline Ruth Thompson '02 Head Coach of Field Hockey.

The All-Ivy League team is determined by a vote of the league's eight head coaches.
