 STORRS, Conn. – Less than two weeks after helping the University of Connecticut field hockey program capture its second-straight and fourth overall national championship, three Huskies were honored as All-Americans by the NFHCA on Monday. Junior captain Roisin Upton (Limerick, Ireland) was placed on the First Team, senior captain Chrissy Davidson (West Lawn, Pa.) earned a Second Team nod and sophomore defender Anna Middendorf (Bremen, Germany) was tabbed as a Third Team member as announced by the organization.

24 different Huskies have now earned a total of 43 First Team All-America selections while 28 Huskies have earned a total of 32 Second Team honors. The Huskies have now had eight All-America selections over the past two seasons.

All three Huskies were honored as NFHCA All-Mideast Region First Team selections in early November.  



Upton, who earns her second All-America nod of her career, was an integral part of the 2014 Husky squad which won its final 14 games en route to the NCAA National Championship. The 2014 Big East Defensive Player of the Year tallied 24 points with 12 assists and six goals, serving as a central part of Connecticut's penalty corner unit.  She was named the Big East Tournament’s Most Outstanding Player and earned a spot on the All-Tournament team after scoring a goal, dishing out an assist, as well as playing the second half of the championship game as the team’s centerback. She also earned a spot on All-Tournament team following the conclusion of the 2014 national title game.

Davison, one of two Husky captains, was a mainstay in the Connecticut midfield, chipping in 13 assists to go along with a pair of scores. The West Lawn, Pa. native registered 25 assists in her final two seasons in Storrs. She earned a spot on the All-Conference Tournament team and matched a season-high with four points against Yale on Oct. 19. Following UConn’s 1-0 win over Syracuse in the NCAA title game, Davidson was one of four Huskies tabbed to the All-Tournament team.

Middendorf was a key cog in the UConn defense which has boasted nine shutouts in 23 games. The sophomore proved to be one of the nation’s most dangerous threats on penalty corner attempts, tallying nine goals to go along with nine assists. Her biggest assist of the season came on the eventual game-winning goal in the NCAA Championship game as she fed a ball to Mckenzie Townsend (Harpursville, Pa.) in the middle of the circle on a corner attempt. She also recorded a season-best five points in the Huskies’ dominant 4-0 victory over league foe Old Dominion on Oct. 10
