COLUMBUS, Ohio — First team All-Big Ten. First team All-West Region. You can now add third team All-America to the impressive list of accomplishments for senior forward Peanut Johnson.

On Monday, Johnson became the 14th All-American in program history when the National Field Hockey Coaches Association announced its teams. She is the first Buckeye to be so honored since Jenn Sciulli took home first team honors in 2011.

“I am honored and humbled to be on the All-America team,” said Johnson. “When you look at the other names on the list, it makes you realize just how special it is. I’ve been blessed with outstanding teammates and coaches at Ohio State, and without them none of this would be possible. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience wearing the Scarlet and Gray and this is certainly a great way to end my career.”

Johnson will graduate with her name prominent throughout the Ohio State record book, finishing 12th all-time in points with 93 (36 goals, 21 assists), 10th in goals and 13th in assists. Her career resume includes three All-Big Ten honors and three All-Region selections.

After leading the Buckeyes in assists last year with 11, Johnson, a Dayton, Ohio native and Oakwood High School graduate, set a career high this past fall with 12 goals. She had four multi-goal games, including five-point performances against Ball State, Ohio and Iowa.

In Ohio State’s regular season home finale, she collected the second hat trick of her career with a three-goal, one assist effort in a 6-3 win over California. On Sept. 15, she was named the Big Ten’s Offensive Player of the Week and also played in the NFHCA Senior All-Star Game on Nov. 21.

Johnson ranked fourth in the Big Ten in both goals (12) and goals per game (0.67). She was also fifth in total points (29) and points per game (1.61). She registered multiple points in eight games this year, and the Buckeyes were 7-1 in those contests.

Johnson now joins an elite group of Buckeyes to collect All-America honors. Fourteen players earned 28 individual accolades, including eight first-teamers, six second teamers and seven third teamers. Anne Wilkinson, who recently completed her 20th season on the sidelines for Ohio State, has coached 12 of the 14 honorees.
