Brown field hockey seniors Samantha Lloyd (Shavertown, PA) and Stacy Gugliotta (East Falmouth, MA), and juniors Andrea Posa (Weston, MA), Kristen Hodavance (Emmaus, PA), and Ani Kazarian (Providence, RI) have all earned 2006 All-Ivy Field Hockey honors in a vote by the League's eight head coaches. Lloyd was a unanimous First Team All-Ivy selection for the second straight year, while Posa was named Second Team All-Ivy. Gugliotta, Hodavance, and Kazarian all earned Honorable Mention honors.
A three-year starter in the midfield, Lloyd was one of five unanimous selections to the First Team. The Bears' third-leading scorer with 13 points (4g, 5a), Lloyd ranked sixth in the Ivy League with five assists this season. Brown's leading scorer a year ago with 20 points, Lloyd finished her career with 39 points (14g, 11a). A one-time Ivy League Player of the Week this year, Lloyd will represent Brown later this month at the annual North/South Senior All-Star game to be played at Wake Forest on November 18.
Posa earned Second Team All-Ivy honors after sharing the team and the Ivy League lead this season with nine goals on the year. After playing a significant role off the bench during her first two seasons, Posa came alive this year, finishing second on the team with 18 points, including three game-winning goals. Posa was named Ivy Player of the Week after scoring three goals in two games, including a 1-0 victory over Harvard.
Three other Bears earned Honorable Mention All-Ivy honors, led by Gugliotta, who led Brown and the Ivy League with 21 points (9g, 3a). After scoring just two goals during the past three seasons, Gugliotta came into her own this season. A one-time Ivy League Player of the Week this year, Gugliotta finishes her career with 25 points (11g, 3a).
Hodavance played every minute in net for Brown this season, and posted a career-best 1.53 goals against average, leading the Ivy League in both GAA and shutouts (4). A one-time Ivy League Player of the Week selection, Hodavance also finished the year with a .771 save percentage, third in the Ivy League.
A three-year starter in the midfield, Kazarian started all 16 games this season and finished the year with three points (1g, 1a). She has played in all 48 games during the past three years and has 13 career points (6g, 1a).
Brown finished the season with an 9-7 record and a 3-4 mark in the Ivy League.
