Capparelli and Dendy Young combined for more than 200 goals this past spring in leading the Hawks to their 12th straight 20-win season.
The Hartwick duo is among 59 Division I players to be named All-America or honorable mention All-America. Six other Hawks have earned the distinction.
Capparelli set a Hartwick single-season record by scoring 139 goals. She broke the mark of 127 set by Bronwen Knox, twice an Olympic bronze medalist for Australia.
Capparelli earned CWPA Western Division Player of the Year honors. She also was named to the CWPA First Team and to the Eastern Championships all-tournament team.
Capparelli finished with 157 points in 2013, the third highest total in Hartwick history. Her 212 goals are sixth all-time in school history.
Dendy Young had a team-high 92 steals, to go along with 69 goals and 32 assists. She joined Capparelli in the Western Division First Team and the Eastern Championships all-tournament team.
Dendy Young’s 225 steals rank fourth on Hartwick’s all-time list. She sits 25 steals short of the school record.
Hartwick finished the season at 29-13.
