WATERVILLE – Husson field hockey has dominated this season.
A lot of its success can be attributed to the stellar play of goalkeeper Ann Marie Provencal.
The North Atlantic Conference took notice.
Ahead of the Eagles NAC east semifinal game on Friday, Provencal was named the NAC East Division Defensive Player of the Year.
The senior goaltender had a minuscule 1.28 goals against average in conference and helped lead the Eagles to a 5-0 record in conference play.
She also earned the distinction of being the first keeper in program history to be named defensive player of the year.
“Its an amazing feeling I’ve never gotten an award like this before. Very taken aback by it and I’m very grateful to be given this,” Provencal said.
