Four Boston College field hockey players were honored by the ACC earlier today. All four players were named to the second team All-ACC. The Eagles previous record was 3 players in 2014. The Eagles also matched their best ACC record this season (3-3) and earned their highest ever ACC tournament seed (3rd).
The players named to the second team All-ACC include sophomores Ymke Rose Gote and Frederique Haverhals and seniors Audra Hampsch and Emily McCoy.
Gote, a midfielder, started all 18 games for BC this season. She recorded 4 assists during the regular season and has been particularly important off corners.
Haverhals is tied for the league lead in game winning goals with a pair in ACC play. She is 4th on the Eagles in scoring and earned ACC defensive player of the week honors once this season.
Hampsch leads the ACC in saves (92) and is second in the league with 5.11 saves per game. She has the 18th best save percentage in the country.
McCoy was named to the second team All-ACC for the second straight season. She has 13 points this season and earned ACC offensive player of the week honors on November 1. McCoy is tied for 10th in career goals and is 11th in career points at BC.
The Eagles begin play in the 2016 ACC Championship tomorrow at Wake Forest. They will play Virginia at 4 PM. Fans can watch the Eagles on NESNPlus and ACC Network Extra.
