ALBANY, N.Y.— At the conclusion of the America East Field Hockey Championship, UAlbany’s Frederike Helmke and Kelsey Briddell were announced to the All-Tournament Team. The Great Danes beat UC Davis 5-0 in the quarterfinals; however, UAlbany concluded their season in the semifinals falling to New Hampshire 2-1 in overtime.

Helmke was named the 2017 America East Defensive Player of the Year. The junior form Berlin, Germany was a crucial part of the Great Danes’ back-line, but also remained a key part of the offense, especially on corners. She recorded five goals this season with two assists, totaling 12 points.

Briddell leads the team in assists with Dana Bozek, both with seven. The senior from Gansevoort, NY concluded her career this weekend as the team’s main penalty corner injector. Briddell holds 17 points this season, fourth on the team.

The America East Tournament concluded on Sunday, Nov. 5th. Stanford took home the title for the second-straight season beating New Hampshire 4-1 in the final.
