Yesterday, USA Field Hockey announced the rosters for the 2017 Young Women's National Championship, which will take place from June 12-16 in Lancaster, PA. Emily and Erin McCoy (BC ‘17) and Leah Settipane (BC ‘16) both made the development team, while Sarah Dwyer, an incoming sophomore, made Team USA White. In addition to deciding the National Champion, this event helps coaches to select the U.S. Women's National Development Squad and U.S. U-21 Women's National Team. The National Development Squad is used to help college players transition from NCAA play to the National Team.
Emily McCoy had 84 career points for the Eagles. She had her best season as a junior, scoring 10 goals and recording 6 assists. She is tied for 9th in program history with 34 career goals and for 6th in game played with 82.
McCoy is joined on the development team by her twin sister, Eryn, also class of 2016. Eryn recorded 85 points as an Eagle, tying her sister with 34 career goals. In addition to being tied for 9th in career goals, Eryn in 10th in program history with her 85 career points. Both McCoy sisters were named to the development team in January
Leah Settipane was BC’s starting goaltender during all 4 years that she played for the Eagles. She is 3rd in program history with 469 career saves and leads all BC field hockey goalies with 48 career wins. She is also 3rd in program history in shutouts, allowing no goals in 15 games.
While the McCoys and Settipane are essentially locks for the development team, Sarah Dwyer will be competing for a spot on the development or U-21 team. Dwyer, a goaltender, played in one game for BC as a freshman. As a high schooler, she played for the U-17 team, was a NFHCA All-American as a senior, and led her team to three division and section championships.
Congrats and good luck to all 4 Eagles competing for a trophy and a roster spot! You can find the full tournament schedule here.
