Julia Grover ’16 (second team), Murphy McCann ’15 (honorable mention) and Abigail Tepper ’16 (first team) have been named to the Commonwealth Coast Conference all-conference team for field hockey.
Tepper leads the Seahawks in scoring with 46 points (19 goals, eight assists) and ranks second in the league in goals and points. She also has six game-winning goals in 2014, helping Salve Regina reach the 13-win total for only the second time in program history.
Grover ranks first among Salve Regina midfielders with 17 points (six goals, five assists). She has been a consistent producer over the last three years with 18 goals and 17 assists.
Although McCann has been the starting goalkeeper for the last four seasons, she has produced her best goals against average (1.76) this season. Her four shutouts and 91 saves in 19 games have contributed to the first winning season for field hockey since 2006.
Salve Regina has earned its first postseason spot in the conference playoffs since 2009. As the fourth seed, the Seahawks will travel to the University of New England to face the top-seeded Nor’easters at 4 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 5.
