Boston College Field Hockey Duo Earn BIG EAST Weekly Honors
Chestnut Hill, Mass. - Two members of the Boston College field hockey team earned weekly accolades from the BIG EAST Conference for their outstanding play in two Eagle victories.
Junior tri-captains Joy Ramsbotham (Melvin Village, N.H.) and Anne Marie Ambros (Bridgeton, N.J.) were key contributors to the Eagles' 2-0 week. Ramsbotham, a forward, shared Co-Offensive Player of the Week honors with Providence's Paula Wagoner while Ambros was named as the Defensive Player of the Week.
Last Tuesday versus Boston University, Ramsbotham scored one goal, her first of the season, and assisted on the game-winner in overtime to lead Boston College to a 3-2 victory. It was the Eagles' first victory over the Terriers since 1994. Three days later, Ramsbotham scored one goal to lift the Eagles to a 2-0 victory over Villanova in the BIG EAST season opener for both teams.
Ambros, a back, had a solid week, assisting on three of the Eagles' five goals in the two games. Ambros had two assists in the win over Boston University and assisted on Ramsbotham's second-half goal against Villanova. On the season, Ambros has four assists.
It is the second time in her career that Ramsbotham, has earned BIG EAST weekly honors (Oct. 6, 1996). Ramsbotham was a Second Team All-BIG EAST and Second Team All-America pick last year. It is the first weekly accolade for Ambros, who was an All-BIG EAST selection in 1996.
Boston College, now 4-2 on the season, will travel to Northeastern for a 6:30 p.m. start on September 24 before hosting Holy Cross on September 28 at 1 p.m.
