UNH field hockey players named to NFHCA Northeast Region Team

DURHAM, N.H. - Jen Stamp (Tyngsboro, Mass.) and Katie White (Glens Falls, N.Y.) were named to the 2003 STX/NFHCA Division I Northeast Region First Team, the NFHCA announced Monday. Sam Carr (Yorktown Heights, N.Y.) was named to the Second Team.

All three Wildcats were named to the America East All-Conference First Team earlier this month and Carr was also selected to the America East All-Championship Team.

Stamp, a senior forward and repeat selection to the First Team, was the captain of the 2003 Wildcats and was a driving force behind the offense the past two seasons. She led this year's team in assists (nine) and was second in both goals (eight) and points (25); those numbers rank seventh in the America East conference in assists and 10th in both goals and points. Stamp's season highlights included career highs of three goals and seven points vs UMBC as well as a career-high three assists vs. Syracuse. Stamp had a point in 10 of 21 games, including five of the final eight. Her 20 career assists ranks seventh on UNH's all-time list and 72 points is ninth.

White, a sophomore midfielder, led the 'Cats in goals (21) and points (44) and she ended the regular season ranked fourth in the nation in goals, eighth in goals per game, eighth in points and 13th in points per game. White's 21 goals is No. 2 on UNH's single-season list, as is her 44 points. Her season highlights include a nine-point (four goals, assist) performance vs. UMBC and a seven-game goal-scoring streak. White, who scored four game-winning goals, scored a goal in 13 of 21 games including seven of the last nine.

Carr, a senior back, developed into the team's top defensive player this season. She stepped into a starting role as a sophomore and was in the starting lineup for all 21 games this season. Carr scored seven goals in her career, including one this season, and three of those tallies were game-winning goals. She was the backbone of UNH's defense this year as well as an emotional leader for the team.

UNH finished the 2003 season with a 5-1 America East conference record that earned the Wildcats the No. 2 seed in the conference tournament, and the 'Cats had a 10-11 overall record.
