GORHAM, Maine – Senior Maggie Redman (Alfred, Maine) and sophomore Lindsay Pych (West Milford, N.J./Morristown-Beard) of the University of Southern Maine Huskies' field hockey team each earned weekly honors from the Little East Conference after standout performances during a 2-0 week in LEC action.
Pych was named the LEC Goalkeeper of the Week, while Redman was named the conference's Defensive Player of the Week. It is the first time this season that the Huskies, 4-1 in Little East Conference play, have representation on the conference's weekly awards program. It marks the second time in her career that Redman has been named the LEC Defensive Player of the Week, while Pych is earning Goalkeeper of the Week honors for the first time. Pych earned Rookie of the Week honors once in 2018.
The conference leader in save percentage at .828, Pych backstopped USM to a pair of LEC wins with a 2-0 victory at home against Salem State and a 4-1 road win against Bridgewater State. Over two games, Pych has an outstanding 0.50 goals against average and an .875 save percentage. Pych made seven saves in the Huskies' win over Salem State to earn her third win by shutout of the season. Pych is an Environmental Policy & Planning major.
The Huskies' link in the midfield, Redman played well on both sides of the ball, helping USM limit its opponents to just one goal over two games. The defensive flyer on penalty corners, Redman helped the Huskies kill off eight penalty corners over two games. Redman also chipped in offensively, assisting on Southern Maine's game-winner against Salem State, and scoring twice in USM's 4-1 win over Bridgewater State.
A Criminology major, Redman is one of the Huskies' co-captains. She is a two-time William B. Wise Scholar-Athlete and a three-time National Field Hockey Coaches' Association All-Academic Team selection.
