STORRS, Conn. – Lindsey Howard, a 2008 graduate of the UConn field hockey team and four-time letter winner, has been selected to represent Australia on the 2018 Women’s Indoor Field Hockey World Cup Team in Germany this February.
Howard, formally known as Leck, is one of 12 players selected to the squad that will compete in the Indoor World Cup held in Berlin from February 7- Feb. 11. The tournament will feature 12 of the best national indoor field hockey programs. Australia looks to improve on their eighth place finish at the 2015 Indoor Field Hockey World Cup.
Howard hopes to continue her success for Australia after being tabbed the 2016 Brisbane Women’s Hockey Associate Division 1 Player of the Year. Additionally in 2013, she helped the Queensland Scorchers of the Australian Hockey League (AHL) win the league championship for the first time in eight years.
An All-BIG EAST First Team member in 2008, Howard was a two-time All-Region selection during her time with the Huskies. She was also named All-Conference Second Team in her junior season, when she accounted for four game-winning goals throughout the season.
Originally from New Jersey, the former Husky helped the program to three consecutive BIG EAST Championships (2005, ‘06 and ‘07), reach one NCAA Quarterfinals (2005) and two NCAA Semifinal appearances (2006, ’07). UConn achieved a 77-17 mark throughout Howard’s four years.
