Conroy, Bergeron and Parisi honored for Panthers
PLYMOUTH, N.H. – Three members of the Plymouth State University field hockey team were recognized Tuesday with selection to the 2010 All-Little East Conference Team.
Senior Kristina Conroy (Wakefield, Mass.) was named to the All-LEC Second Team at forward, and juniors Lauren Bergeron (New Hampton, N.H./Newfound) and Christina Parisi (Hampton Falls, N.H./Winnacunnet) represented Plymouth State as All-LEC Third Team midfielders. All three Panthers are All-Conference selections for the first time in their careers.
A four-year starter for the Panthers, Conroy (right) led PSU in scoring and ranked among the LEC leaders with 10 goals and 11 assists. Her assist total is the third-highest in a season in Panther history and ranked second in the LEC. The team’s only senior, Conroy also served as a team leader and co-captain. She will finish her career in PSU’s all-time top 10 in goals (34), assists (21) and points (89), including fifth in career points (entering this weekend).
A three-year starter in the Panther midfield, Bergeron (far left) has never missed a game and has started all but two in her three-year career. She scored five goals this season and finished second on the team with six assists. Bergeron also shared co-captains duties as one of only three returning starters. She upped her career totals to eight goals and 16 assists in 63 games.
A three-year veteran and first-year starter, Parisi (near left) has shown improvement every year, taking over as a starter and All-Conference player this season. She displayed solid all-around play while contributing four goals and four assists. Parisi now has career totals of eight goals and five assists.
PSU, 12-7 overall, is the #3 seed in this week’s ECAC Division III New England Tournament, and faces second-seeded Endicott College (11-8) at 2:00 p.m. in Saturday’s semifinals at top-seeded Bridgewater State University.
