Kristen McCarthy’s collegiate field hockey career may have come to a close last month, but not before she etched her name in the Endicott College record books.
By the time she had wrapped up her final Gulls’ game, the former Danvers High standout came in at first all-time in assists (28), second all-time in points (153) and third all-time in goals scored (52). More impressively, she did all that in just 47 games.
Her offensive prowess and all-around consistency landed her back-to-back Commonwealth Coast Conference (CCC) Offensive Player of the Year awards, including her senior season this fall. Late last week, she added one last prestigious honor to her resume: The 2019 First Point USA/National Field Hockey Coaches Association Division 3 New England East Regional Player of the Year.
