Eleana Cardarelli, the Globe's Division 1 Athlete of the Year in field hockey last fall, has committed to Providence College.
The 5-foot-8-inch junior from Acton-Boxboro had 29 goals and 15 assists this season, leading the 22-1-1 Colonials to their third state title in six years.
Providence's field hockey team posted a 9-9 record last fall and has qualified for the four-team Big East championship in five of the last seven years.
Cardarelli has also been a standout on the girls' lacrosse and ice hockey teams at Acton-Boxboro, and each team she is on seems to experience success. The girls' ice hockey team advanced to the Division 1 state final two years ago while the girls' lacrosse team is having its best season since 2010, off to an 8-4-1 start.
Cardarelli's sophomore sister, Leah, has been a standout across the three sports as well.
