DURHAM, N.H. -- Amy Agulay (London, Ont.), a senior goalkeeper on the University of New Hampshire field hockey team, was recently named a recipient of an NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship for part-time or full-time postgraduate study at the university or professional school of her choice.
Agulay is the second UNH Wildcat to win an NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship. Former women's basketball standout Orsi Farkas was a recipeint last year.
Earlier this year, Agulay was named to the Verizon District I Academic All-America Team and to the 2000 NFHCA Division I National Academic Squad. She was also named to the latter team in 1999 and 1998. Agulay, who was selected to the Canadian National Field Hockey Team in late January, is a two-time America East All-Conference First Team honoree. 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.
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.
