BOSTON - Christine Buckley (Walpole, Mass.) and Sam Carr (Yorktown Heights, N.Y.) of the University of New Hampshire field hockey team were named to the America East All-Championship Team on Sunday following the conclusion of the tournament.
In one tournament game (2-0 loss in the semifinals to Maine), Buckley stopped six of eight shots for a .750 save percentage and a 2.00 GAA, but her numbers do not belie the fact that her key saves kept UNH within striking distance until Maine scored its second goal with 14 seconds remaining. Prior to the Championships, Buckley was named to the All-Conference Second Team.
Carr was the team's top defensive player throughout the 2003 season and continued to display that in the America East Championships. Prior to the tourney, Carr was selected to the All-Conference First Team.
