The last of three sisters to come to Brown to play field hockey, Christine stepped out of her sisters' shadows. A native of North Dighton, Massachusetts, Monteiro, beginning her freshman season, was a standout at Brown.
The accolades came early and often. As a freshman, she was named Ivy League Rookie of the Year. After scoring a Brown records eleven goals, she was named the team's most outstanding offensive player as a freshman and was a Second Team All-ivy performer.
In her sophomore season, Monteiro was a First Team All-Ivy selection and the team's most outstanding offensive player for the second consecutive year. She went on as a junior to be selected to the First Team All-Ivy team, as well as the First Team All-Northeast Region team.
Monteiro continued her success as a senior, and was named a First Team All-Ivy performer for the third straight year. She also earned First Team All-Northeast Region honors for the second straight year. Her career was capped off perfectly when she became the first and only Brown player to receive All-American honors.
In her four-year career, she led Brown to a 31-25-7 record, including the Ivy League championship in 1989 and 1991, and the ECAC Championship in 1989. Christine ended her career at Brown as the school's all-time leader in goals, 25, and points, 34. Prior to the 1999 season, these records still stand. Always looking to better her team, Christine moved from forward to midfielder during her senior season, or those totals could be even better.
Christine currently resides in Taunton, Massachusetts, with her husband Christopher Gabriel. After leaving her position as the head field hockey coach at Salve Regina University, she is employed as a business analyst for a software consulting firm in Providence.
