Troster Named to America East All-Academic Field Hockey Team
Kristi Troster was named to the America East All-Academic Field Hockey Team for the second year in a row.
Boston-UMBC senior midfielder Kristi Troster was named to the America East All-Academic Field Hockey Team, the conference announced Monday.
Troster, an America East All-Conference Second Team member, earns All-Academic recognition for the second straight season. She scored two goals and four points this season and also recorded two defensive saves. Troster ranks fourth all-time at UMBC with 14 goals and 36 points in her career.
The All-Academic squads are a product of the June 2005 Athletics Director meetings. Faculty representatives and athletics directors from each of the conference’s nine member institutions decided to honor some of the league’s top athletes that are also quality students.
The All-Academic Team has been selected based on the student-athlete’s academic and athletic accomplishments. Academic achievement for consideration requires student-athletes to have a minimum cumulative grade-point average of 3.00 entering the season. Athletically, student-athletes are required to be a nomination on the post-season awards ballot, which is determined by the league’s head coaches. Team size for team sports is based on the number of athletes that participate in a contest at one time (e.g., 11 on the field for field hockey). In the event that the number of student-athletes meeting the requirements is greater than the number that participate in a contest at one time, all-conference vote totals were used as the tie-breaking criteria. Freshmen are not eligible for the all-academic teams and grade-point averages are taken from the semester prior to the competing athletic season.
