Three field hockey players earn all-conference nods
Three Seahawks have been named to the Commonwealth Coast Conference’s all-conference team for field hockey: Forward Amber Cody ’18 (first team), midfielder Erin Gendreau ’17 (first team) and midfielder Sarah Thompson ’17 (second team).
Cody leads the league in scoring with 49 points, 19 goals (tied for first) and 11 assists (second). She produced five game-winning goals in the regular season, four of them against conference opponents.
“Amber stepped into a more offensive role this season and has really been the spark for us on offense,” said head coach Jennifer Foster. “Her stick work and speed gets our offense going and she is someone we will need to step up as we enter post season play.”
Team captains Gendreau and Thompson have combined for 13 goals, including three game winners from Gendreau and three penalty strokes from Thompson.
“Erin and Sarah have been the backbone of our midfield this season,” Foster said. “They work great together and do a great job of controlling play for us. We will look to their experience and leadership as we play in the CCC semis.”
Salve Regina (9-9, 5-7 CCC) earned the fourth and final playoff spot in the conference’s postseason, and will play at top-seeded and defending champion University of New England on Wednesday, Nov. 2.
