P.S.C. FIELD HOCKEY PLAYERS RECEIVE SEASON ACCOLADES

November 25th, 1997 by Adam

PLYMOUTH, N.H. — Three players from the Plymouth State College field hockey team were recently honored by the National Field Hockey Coaches Association with a variety of post-season honors.

Seniors Erin Murphy (Collinsville, CT) and Sarah Mello (Oak Bluffs, MA) were named First Team New England West Regional All-Stars, and were joined by classmate Jen Martin (Saunderstown, RI) on the New England West Region Second Team.

In addition, Murphy was selected to participate in the North-South Senior All-Star game last Friday (Nov. 21st) at the University of Connecticut, in conjunction with the Division I Final Four, and Mello walked away with the greatest honor of them all by being selected Third Team All-America.

Murphy completed the ’97 campaign by leading the Panthers with 13 goals, 10 assists and 36 points as well as being a major force which catapulted PSC into the No. 1 seed in the ECAC Tournament. Plymouth State representation in the North-South game is nothing new, as Murphy is the fifth PSC player in four years to be selected. Players from years past include Jen Vinnitti and Shelley Hoar in 1996, Heidi Fiske in 1995, and Tricia Boehner in 1994.

Martin posted her best statistical year by scoring six of her career eight goals. What paper doesn’t show is her team leadership, offensive prowess, and scoring threat she represents when on the field.

Mello, the starting sweeper, provided outstanding defense, anchoring a tough Panther squad that posted 13 shutouts and allowed only 15 goals in 21 games.

The three standouts were instrumental in leading Plymouth State to an outstanding season that ended with a 16-5 overall record. As the top seed in the ECAC Tournament, the Panthers served as host and advanced to the semi-finals before being eliminated on penalty strokes by Keene State. It was the fifth consecutive post-season appearance for the Panthers under sixth-year head coach Wynn Hohlt.
