Field Hockey's Pierce and Neverett Earn All-TCCC Honors

Gordon College senior Veronica Pierce (West Hartford, Connecticut) and junior Samantha Neverett (Athol, Mass.) have been named to The Commonwealth Coast Conference (TCCC) All-Conference Team for their efforts throughout the 2010 field hockey season.

Pierce, team captain, four-year starter, and three-time All-TCCC First Team honoree, tallied eight goals and four assists (20 points) for the Fighting Scots out of the midfield during the regular season.

In her second season with the Scots, Neverett led Gordon’s front line with 11 goals (three of which were game winners) and four assists on the season, giving her 26 points in all en route to her first conference nod.

Said head coach Cory Ward of the honors, “This is a very well-deserved recognition for both of these players. They each helped drive our team’s progress this season and it’s nice for the other coaches and the TCCC to recognize them for that.”

Assuming the sixth seed for the conference tournament, the Fighting Scots will travel to face the third-seeded University of New England on Saturday, October 30, in the TCCC quarterfinal round.
