STORRS, Conn. -- After wrapping up its spring schedule on April 25 in a round-robin tournament at Boston College, two University of Connecticut standouts are set to continue play with the their respective USA Field Hockey squads, while four Huskies prepare for graduation as the 2014-15 academic year comes to a close.
U.S. U-21 National Team Update
Freshman midfielder Karlie Heistand, who competed with the U21 squad when it challenged Canada four times over a five-day stretch between Feb. 12-16, helped her team to a pair of victories over Syracuse and Penn State and a draw with Albany in scrimmage action over the weekend.
On the pitch in 2014, Heistand earned 15 starts and saw action in 22 contests, helping the Huskies win their final 14 games of the season. She notched her first collegiate point with an assist in the NCAA Tournament in a 6-1 Husky victory over Kent St. at the George J. Sherman Family-Sports Complex.
U.S. National Team Update
Next week, standout Chrissy Davidson, a 2014 Second Team All-American, will return to Spooky Nook Sports Complex in Lancaster, Pa. to begin training for a busy summer schedule. Davidson will join three other former UConn players, Melissa Gonzalez, Rayell Heistand, and Marie Elena Bolles on the national team roster.
