FAIRFIELD, Conn. — Fairfield University field hockey seniors Ann Burgoyne and Julie de Paeuw were both named to the Longstreth/NFHCA Division I All-Mideast Region Team as announced Tuesday afternoon. For Burgoyne, it’s her third straight selection while de Paeuw captures her second straight. The duo was also named to the NFHCA DI Senior All-Star roster as well as the All-MAAC First Team earlier this month.
“I am so very proud of Ann and Julie,” said Head Coach Jackie Kane. “They have both worked extremely hard and are deserving of this recognition. The two of them have positively impacted our field hockey program during their four years in a Stag uniform.”
Fairfield’s leading scoring with 35 points, Burgoyne earns her second selection to the First Team and third overall selection to an All-Region Team. The captain and forward will graduate as the Stags’ all-time leader in points (126) and goals (56). In 2016, she knocked in 13 goals and had a career-best nine assists to lead the Cardinal Red to the MAAC Championship Game for the second consecutive season.
The Belgium native, de Paeuw, earns her second straight selection to the Mideast Region Second Team after earning the distinction after the 2015 season as well. The midfielder and captain led the Sags with 11 assists in 2016 which tied a single-season program record. Through her four years she totaled 70 points, 26 goals, and 18 assists, all ranking among the top ten in Fairfield history.
The Stags finished the season at 8-13 with a 4-2 record in MAAC play. Fairfield topped Bryant in the semifinals of the MAAC Championships before falling to Monmouth in the Championship Game in a 3-2 double overtime loss that sent the Hawks to the NCAA Tournament.
