Jazmin Petrantonio

Petrantonio is the first Shippensburg University student-athlete to be selected as a conference nominee for the NCAA Woman of the Year award since Gabriella Johnson in 2020. She is joined by East Stroudsburg senior lacrosse player Kayleigh Pokrivka as one of two student-athletes nominated by the PSAC. In the 2021 NCAA Field Hockey Tournament, Petrantonio helped Shippensburg to its sixth national championship (fifth NCAA national championship) and its fourth national title in the last five seasons. She scored the second goal in the National Championship Game victory over West Chester and was named the Most Outstanding Player of the 2021 NCAA Division II National Championships.

Petrantonio led the nation in goals per game (1.85), points per game (4.2), goals (37), and points (84). Petrantonio scored or assisted in 19 of SU’s 20 games this season; the only game in which she did not record a point was in the national semifinal. Petrantonio concluded her historic career with 106 career goals, third-most in NCAA Division II history. In her 79 career games with the Raiders, Petrantonio totaled 248 career points (106 goals, 36 assists) and 29 game-winning goals. She also finished her career as the leading scorer in the history of the NCAA Division II Field Hockey Championships, having scored 10 career goals in eight career NCAA Tournament games. 

 NCAA Committee on Women’s Athletics

The next step is for the Woman of the Year selection committee to choose the Top 30 honorees — 10 from each division. The committee is made up of representatives from the NCAA membership.
From the Top 30, the Woman of the Year selection committee will determine the top three honorees in each division and announce nine finalists. The NCAA Committee on Women’s Athletics then will choose the 2022 NCAA Woman of the Year, who will be named this fall.

The CWSA Division II Honda Athlete of the Year, two-time National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA) Division II National Player of the Year and three-time NCAA Division II Field Hockey Champion, Petrantonio graduated in May with a double major in management (concentration in international management) and accounting and a 3.48 cumulative grade-point average (GPA). She was also named to the 2021-22 Academic All-America ® Third Team, 2021-22 Academic All-District 2 ® At-Large Team, and was a two-time NFHCA Division II National Academic Squad and NFHCA Division II National Academic Team Award winner.
