Junior Marly Gillece was selected by her teammates at last week's banquet as the 2005 women's field hockey captain. Gillece played in 10 games this year on defense. In 2003, she was named to the NFHCA Division I National Academic Squad. Her freshman year, she started 17 games, the most by any freshman of the class of 2006.
Three other team members also received awards at the banquet. The Coaches Award, awarded by the coaching staff to a member of the field hockey team who exemplifies principles, direction and persistence in pursuit of field hockey excellence at Yale was awarded to captain Chrissy Hall and fellow senior Sarah Driscoll.
Driscoll was also the recipient of the Amanda Walton award. This honor is awarded by the players and coaching staff to that team member who demonstrates the ability to confront challenges, and displays the courage to overcome them, while inspiring teammates with her work ethic and unselfish attitude.
The Senior Award, awarded by the senior class to a freshman team member who reflects positive contribution to the team's philosophy and whose individual character encourages the future direction and excellence of Yale Field Hockey was awarded to Beth Raveche.
