Five North Carolina players have been honored as part of the 2012 Longstreth/NFHCA All-South Region teams, announced Thursday by the National Field Hockey Coaches Association. Seniors Kelsey Kolojejchick and Caitlin Van Sickle, sophomore Charlotte Craddock and freshman Emily Wold were named to the first team and senior Katie Ardrey was named to the second team.

Kolojejchick, a midfielder from Larksville, Pa., earned a spot on the first team for the fourth time in her career. Van Sickle, a back from Wilmington, Del., earned first-team honors for the third time after being a member of the second team as a freshman. Ardrey, a midfielder from London, England, earned a spot on the team for the second time. Craddock, a forward from Wolverhampton, England, and Wold, a midfielder from Freehold, N.J., both newcomers to the program, were honored for the first time.

A total of 29 Atlantic Coast Conference players earned all-region honors, more than any other league. A complete list of the honorees is available at nfhca.org.

The top-ranked Tar Heels (22-1) take on No. 5 Syracuse Friday in Norfolk, Va., in the first of two NCAA semifinal games. UNC meets the Orange at 2 p.m. at Old Dominion’s Powhatan Sports Complex, and Maryland plays Princeton in the second semifinal at 4:30 p.m. The winners clash Sunday at 1 p.m. for the NCAA title. All three games will be streamed live on NCAA.com.
