WATERVILLE, ME --- Thomas College senior field hockey players Taylor Bergeron (Lyman, Maine / Massabesic) and Brooklyn Curry (Belfast, Maine / Belfast) have been named to the 2015 Longstreth / NFHCA Division III All-New England East Region Teams, the National Field Hockey Coaches Association announced today.
Bergeron, a forward who earned North Atlantic Conference Player of the Year honors earlier this fall, was named to the first team. Curry, a first-team all-NAC selection on defense, was named to the all-region second team. The pair are the first Thomas players to earn NFHCA all-region honors.
Limited to just a pair of assists in Thomas first nine games, Bergeron exploded during the second half of the season for seven goals to finish with a team-high 16 points. In NAC play, she posted a league-high 12 points and six goals.
Bergeron had a hat trick against New England College on October 17 and scored the lone goal as Thomas topped Husson, 1-0, on October 24. It was the Terriers' first win over the Eagles since 2004 and the first shutout since 1997.
Bergeron scored 14 goals and two assists in her career, finishing in a tie for eighth in goals and 10th in points (30) on Thomas' all-time charts.
Curry started all 17 games this season, scoring eight points on two goals and four assists. She assisted on both goals in Thomas' 2-1 win over Colby-Sawyer on October 3. One of Curry's two goals came in 2-1 win over Castleton to open NAC play.
She finished her career tied for third on Thomas' career assists chart with nine.
