THREE GENERALS NAMED TO ALL-STATE FIELD HOCKEY TEAM
SALEM, Va. -- Three members of the Washington and Lee field
hockey team were selected to the Virginia Sports Information Directors
Association (VaSID) College Division All-State Field Hockey Team, which
was announced Monday afternoon.
Sophomore defender Rebecca Hatchett (Newport News, Va./Hampton
Roads) was named to the first team, while senior midfielder Kitt Murphy
(New York, N.Y./St. Catherines) and junior midfielder Jane Beall (Richmond,
Va./James River) were tabbed to the honorable mention team.
Hatchett was named to the all-state team for the first
time after garnering First Team All-ODAC recognition this season. She
started 17 of the team's 18 games, spearheading a defense which recorded
five shutouts and allowed an average of just 1.61 goals per game.
Murphy was named to the all-state team for the third time
in her career after being named Second Team All-ODAC earlier this season.
Murphy started all 18 games, finishing second on the team in scoring with
22 points coming on nine goals and four assists. She finished her career
ranked second at W&L in career assists (15) and third in career goals
(19) and career points (53).
Beall earned her first selection to the all-state squad
after posting Honorable Mention All-ODAC accolades earlier in the season.
She led the team in scoring (31), goals (12) and assists (7) during the
2004 campaign, and enters her senior season ranked first all-time at W&L
with 16 career assists. She is also ranked second in career goals (26)
and career points (68). Beall can take over the W&L career scoring
mark with five more points.
Washington and Lee finished the 2004 season with a 9-9 overall record, 6-3 in the Old Dominion Athletic Conference. The Generals advanced to the ODAC Semifinals for the third straight season before falling to eventual champion, Virginia Wesleyan, by a score of 2-0.
