Buza, Pierpont, and Harwood Earn STX/NFHCA All-Region Field Hockey Honors

Nov. 18, 2003

Brown seniors Lizzie Buza (Houston, TX), Meaghan Harwood (Hoosick Falls, NY) and Laurel Pierpont (Jacksonville, FL) were all selected to the 2003 STX/NFHCA All-Region Field Hockey team.

A four-time All-Ivy selection, Buza, who earned First Team All-Ivy recognition, was named First Team All-Region for the second straight season. A Second Team All-Region selection in 2001, Buza finished as the team's leading scorer with 20 points (7g, 6a). She is one of Brown's best all-around players, and a dominant force in the midfield, finishing her career with 60 points on 21 goals and 18 assists.

Pierpont, who earned Second Team All-Ivy recognition for the second year in a row, was also honored as a Second Team All-Region selection for the second straight year. She finished this season as Brown's third-leading scorer with 17 points (7g, 3a), and will leave Brown with 72 points on 28 goals and 16 assists. In addition, she is in the Brown record books for most points in a game with eight.

Harwood, who earned Second Team All-Ivy honors this season, was also selected as a member of the All-Region Second Team. A forward for her first three years, Harwood played at back this season, and quickly became one of the most valuable defenders on the team with great vision and playmaking skills. She still contributed on offense, finishing the year with eight points (3g,2a) for 34 career points (15g, 4a).

Brown finished the season with an 11-6 record, its first winning season since 2000, and a 4-3 mark and fourth place finish in the Ivy League.
