DURHAM, N.H. -- Kristin Andruszkiewicz (Beverly, Mass.) and Maggie McKee (Middlebury, Vt.) of the University of New Hampshire women's lacrosse team were recently named to the IWLCA Division I All-Academic Squad. Only juniors and seniors who have a minimum 3.20 grade-point-average and are either a starter or prominent reserve are eligible to make the team.
Andruszkiewicz, a communication disorders major who earned the same honor as a junior in 1999, started all 17 games at midfield in the 2000 season. Her lone goal this year came in UNH's victory at Vermont and she registered an assist against nationally-ranked Penn State. Her greater contribution was to the transition game through her ability to win ground balls - she ranked fourth on the team - and her speed. A three-year starter, Andruszkiewicz concluded her Wildcat career with six points on four goals and two assists in 61 games (50 starts).
McKee, an English major, started all 15 games in which she appeared this season. After one year at Colby College, she came to UNH for the 1999 season as an attack but made a successful transition to defender this season. McKee ranked second amongst UNH defensemen in ground balls and led the team in that category against both Brown University and Hofstra University. Her trip back to the Green Mountain State was an eventful one, as she recorded her first collegiate point with a goal against Vermont.
UNH, which advanced to the America East Championships for a third consecutive season, ended the 2000 campaign with a 7-10 overall record.
