New Hampshire's Schneider named to national honor roll

DURHAM, N.H. - Brittany Schneider (Middletown, Md.), a junior back on the University of New Hampshire field hockey team, was one of five players in the country selected to the National Honor Roll by womensfieldhockey.com on Monday for her efforts the week of Oct. 20-26.

Schneider scored a goal in both UNH games last week to help the Wildcats extend their winning streak to six games and remain atop the America East conference standings at 5-0.

Schneider scored the game-winning goal Oct. 24 against Maine on a penalty stroke - it was UNH's first goal on a penalty stroke since the 2000 season - at 9:21 of overtime to give the 'Cats a 3-2 win. In the next game against the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, Schneider gave the 'Cats a 2-0 lead with a first-half penalty corner goal and UNH recorded a 9-0 victory.

For the year, Schneider has started all 18 games and has eight points on three goals and two assists. She entered the 2003 season with one goal and five assists for seven points in 39 games.

The Wildcats (10-8 overall) return to action Oct. 29 against Boston College. Game time at UNH's Memorial Field is 3 p.m. New Hampshire concludes the regular season Nov. 1 (1 p.m.) at home against Northeastern in a battle for the top seed in - and the right to host - the America East Championships.
