PSU Field Hockey student-athletes earn academic honors

Seven Panthers recognized nationally for classroom work

            PLYMOUTH, N.H. – Seven members of the Plymouth State University field hockey team have been recognized with national academic honors from the National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA).

            The Panthers were named to the NFHCA Division III National Academic Squad, which recognizes student-athletes who have achieved a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.30 through the first semester of the 2010-11 academic year. In addition, Plymouth State was one of the Division III field hockey programs to receive the NFHCA Academic Team Award for having a team GPA of 3.0 or higher.

            The student-athletes representing Plymouth State on the team are senior Kristina Conroy (Wakefield, Mass.), juniors Lauren Bergeron (New Hampton, N.H./Newfound) and Brittany Treichel (Clinton, Conn./Morgan School), sophomore Hannah Sawyer (Kingston, N.H./Sanborn Regional), and freshmen Alyssa Audet (Biddeford, Maine/Cheverus), Amanda Butler (Newton, N.H./Sanborn Regional), and Ashley Reed (Rumney, N.H./Plymouth Regional). Bergeron and Treichel are three-time selections to the National Academic Squad, while Sawyer is a repeat honoree from last year.

            Plymouth State advanced to the post-season in 2010 for the 10th time in the last 11 seasons, finishing with a 14-7 overall record and capturing the ECAC New England Tournament championship.

            The complete NFHCA Division III National Academic Squad can be found on the ’10-’11 Honors and Awards page of the NFHCA website at www.nfhca.org.
