Shippensburg University senior Jazmin Petrantonio was named Thursday afternoon to the 2021-22 Division II Academic All-District 2 At-Large Team, an award that recognizes the nation’s top student-athletes for their combined performance on the field and in the classroom.
All About Jazmin
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).
A two-time National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA) Division II National Player of the Year (2021 and 2018), Petrantonio is the third Raider to be named the NFHCA National Player of the Year and the second Raider to earn it twice. Bre White won the award in 2012 and 2013, and Kristina Taylor was SU’s inaugural recipient in 2010.
Thursday’s announcement brings Petrantonio’s postseason awards total to 12. Petrantonio was previously selected to the NFHCA All-America First Team and the All-Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) First Team. She was named the NFHCA Atlantic Region Player of the Year, PSAC Athlete of the Year, the PSAC Tournament MVP, the NCAA Tournament MVP and was selected to the NCAA All-Tournament Team, the NFHCA All-Academic Team and the NFHCA Senior Team. Petrantonio has also been nominated for the 2021-22 Honda Division II Athlete of the Year Award.
A native of Buenos Aires, Argentina, Petrantonio led the nation in goals per game (1.85), points per game (4.2), goals (37) and points (84). She also totaled 10 assists. 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.
In the 2021 NCAA Field Hockey Tournament, Petrantonio helped Shippensburg to its sixth national championship (fifth NCAA national championship) and its fourth 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 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.
It is the second consecutive year that an SU Field Hockey player has been named to the Academic All-District 2 ® At-Large Team. Molly Herigan was honored last season.
The Academic All-District ® Team is selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA). While most of the Academic All-District and All-America ® teams focus on specific sports such as football, basketball or volleyball, the At-Large category features a collection of several sports – making Petrantonio’s selection especially prestigious.
The women’s At-Large category includes the sports of beach volleyball, bowling, crew, fencing, field hockey, golf, gymnastics, ice hockey, lacrosse, rifle, rowing, skiing, swimming & diving, tennis and water polo.
District 2 includes all schools from the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC), Mountain East Conference (MEC) and the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA).
Petrantonio is now among those eligible for consideration for the Academic All-America ® At-Large Team that will be announced June 15.
