Congratulations On Your Achievements...
Congratulations Becky Stiles U21 2011 National Field Hockey Team!!!
Multi-talented Stiles was dominatingBurlington County Times
This fall, there was an unusually deep field of potential Player of the Year candidates in Burlington County high school field hockey.
There were great scorers like Florence sophomore Lexi Smith. We had dynamic attackers like junior Cortney Natalicchio of New Egypt. On defense there was the stalwart, dominating presence of Moorestown senior Catherine Duffin. Rancocas Valley senior Brynn Gitt was more than the center of her team's midfield, she profoundly transformed the program she played for.
It's in that context that Becky Stiles separated herself from her peers. The Shawnee senior captain had the capacity to dominate in any aspect of the game. This fall, there was no more multitalented player than the 2010 Burlington County Times Field Hockey Player of the Year.
Stiles scored 24 goals this season, more than half of her four year career total of 47. She anchored a defense that allowed a county low 18 goals, less than one per game. She controlled the midfield like no other, leading Shawnee to a 19 3 record and the Central Jersey Group 4 title.Stiles' on field talents, undeniably excellent on their own, were surpassed only by her leadership skills. It's those skills that make her the jewel of Michigan State University's 2011 recruiting class.
"Becky has phenomenal stick skills and a wicked shot," Shawnee coach Renee Phelps said. "She is the best player to come out of Shawnee in the last eight years."

PHILADELPHIA - The Ivy League has announced its 2010 All-Ivy teams in the sport of field hockey, and Penn is represented by senior captain Laurel McGarvie who was a second-team selection. The All-Ivy teams were voted on by the eight coaches.
The senior midfielder was one of four players to start all 17 games for the Quakers, and tied for the team lead in goals (3) and points (8). This is McGarvie's second All-Ivy certificate; she received honorable mention All-Ivy as a junior.
Princeton's Kathleen Sharkey was voted the Ivy League Player of the Year, while Cornell's Hannah Balleza and Yale's Georgia Holland tied in voting for the Ivy League Rookie of the Year and will share the honor.

Rider's Adams NEC Rookie of the Week
LAWRENCEVILLE-Jackie Adams of the Rider University field hockey team was named Northeast Conference Rookie of the Week for all games played the first week of the season it was announced by the conference office Monday afternoon.
"This was a great accomplishment for her," said head coach Lori Hussong. "She was effective inside the circle and put herself in position to be ready to score and that is what we need her to do."
Adams, a 5-2 forward from Medford Lakes, New Jersey (Shawnee High), scored twice in Rider's 8-2 season opening win against Lehigh on August 29.
"I was really nervous, but at some point you have to put that aside and just go out there and play," Adams said after the game. "We all came together and everyone helped out and supported one another. All of the goals came off of passes and if everyone works together, that is how we are going to score and get it done."
Adams, a Communication major, scored to give the Broncs a 2-0 lead 15 minutes into the contest off a loose ball in front of the cage and scored off a rebound three minutes before half time to give Rider (1-0) a 5-0 lead.
In the 10 seasons under Lori Hussong, this is the 28th time that Rider has had a conference Rookie of the Week honoree, something Lori Hussong quickly pointed out is due to the recruiting of Assistant Coach and husband Dan Hussong. "Dan goes out and finds kids that can step in and play," Lori Hussong said. "It is also a credit to the kids that we've had in the program over the past decade that have been able to make that transition from high school to the college game."
The Broncs travel to Philadelphia to take on Temple at Drexel's Buckley Field, September 1 at 3pm. The Owls, who recently received votes in the NFHCA Coaches Top 25 Poll, are 1-1 this season having defeated Saint Francis (PA) 4-1 this past Sunday after losing to fifth ranked Connecticut 2-0 on August 28.
Cairone Selected NJAC Rookie of the WeekMidfielder Julie Cairone (fr. Medford, NJ/Shawnee) earns NJAC Rookie of the Week honors after registering a goal in Rowan’s season-opening 4-1 non-conference road win at Haverford. In the first collegiate game of her career, she netted the Profs’ fourth and final goal of the contest in the 67th minute to secure the victory. Cairone was one of four different Profs that scored goals in Rowan’s season-opening win.

Field Hockey Ivy Player of the Week

Senior Holly McGarvie was named the Ivy League Player of the Week on Tuesday following her two-goal weekend in Princeton's sweep of Richmond and William & Mary. McGarvie netted the game winner in the Richmond game.
On Friday afternoon at Richmond, McGarvie opened the scoring in the first half in a game Princeton would never trail and win 2-1. Two days later, McGarvie scored Princeton's second goal in a 4-0 win at William & Mary. McGarvie currently leads all active Tigers with 20 career goals and is tied for the team lead this season with two scores.
It is McGarvie's second field hockey Player of the Year Award. She also won the award as a sophomore following an 11-point weekend in a sweep of Cornell and Monmouth.
Also on Tuesday, Princeton dropped one spot in the latest STX/NFHCA Coaches Poll to No. 17. The Tigers gained more votes, 200, in the poll than they did in the previous poll, but fell one spot as there was a big shake-up in the rankings since it was the first poll released since the preseason poll and some teams have played up to five games at this point.
McGarvie and the Tigers are back in action on Wednesday at Lehigh and finish the week at No. 5 UConn on Sunday.
