DURHAM, N.H. - Amy Agulay (London, Ont.) and Marcie Boyer (Dillsburg, Pa.) of the University of New Hampshire field hockey team were named to the 2000 NFHCA Division I National Academic Squad, the organization announced Thursday. Agulay, a four-year starting goalkeeper, was also named to the National Academic Squad in 1999 and 1998.
Agulay, a two-time America East All-Conference First Team player, was selected to the Canadian National Field Hockey Team in late January. She stepped into the starting role upon her arrival in Durham and was sixth in the nation in save percentage (.858) as a freshman. In her senior season, Agulay set a school single-season record by playing all 1652:06 in goal and her 204 saves ranked fourth in the nation.
Agulay leaves UNH as the career leader in games played (80), minutes (5564:07) and saves (827). She compiled career numbers of 46-31 with a 1.96 GAA and an .841 save percentage.
Boyer, a sophomore forward selected to the America East All-Conference Second Team this season, started all 22 games for the Wildcats and was second on the team in scoring with 21 points on seven goals and seven assists. She had a team-best three game-winning goals and a career-high five points (2-1-5) against Towson University. In two seasons as a Wildcat, Boyer has career totals of 11-10-32.
A student-athlete must have achieved a minimum grade point average of 3.30 and be a starter or key reserve to be selected to the squad.
UNH won the America East regular-season title and advanced to the NCAA championships for the second time in three years. The 16th-ranked Wildcats were defeated by defending national champion Maryland in the first round to end the year at 14-8.
