PROVIDENCE, RI - The New England Elite Performance Training Center posted squad selections for the 2006 team. The team was cut from the original 80 players to its current list of 40, which includes Brown freshmen Sara Eaton (Arlington, VA) and Kim Perley (Tewksbury, MA), and assistant coach Jennifer Johnstone. This marks the first time Eaton and Perley have earned a spot on the team, while Johnstone is making her second appearance with the team after earning a spot last year.
The objective of the Elite Performance Training Centers is to give top field hockey athletes in each region of the country an opportunity to practice and play on a regular basis throughout the year. A final team selection for the tournament team in Virginia Beach will be posted at a later date.
