Hempstead, NY - Hofstra Field Hockey players Krizia Layne and Jonel Boileau have been named to the 2012 Longstreth/National Field Hockey Coaches Association Division I All-Mideast Region second team, the NFHCA announced Thursday.

Layne, a senior from Arima, Trinidad, earned her second consecutive All-CAA second team honor two weeks ago and her first NFHCA All-Regional honor today. Moving to the defensive line in 2012 after three years at forward, Layne solidified the defense, starting 18 of the 19 games, and finished the season fourth on the team with two goals and four assists for eight points. She tallied goals against Monmouth and Maine and dished out assists against Fairfield, Monmouth, UC Davis and VCU. Layne also had a defensive save against eighth-ranked Old Dominion.


As a junior in 2011, Layne recorded 20 goals and 13 assists at forward and earned her first All-CAA second team honor. The 20 goals, 13 assists and 53 points all stand as the second-most in a single season in Pride history. For her career, Layne played in 73 games with 70 starts and recorded 32 goals and 22 assists for 86 points. Her 22 assists rank fourth, the 32 goals rank fifth and the 86 points are sixth on the Hofstra career charts.


Boileau, a sophomore from Kelowna, BC, Canada, picked up her first NFHCA All-Region honor after earning her first All-CAA second team honor recently.  Boileau, who started all 19 games, led the Pride with 11 goals, 25 points and three game-winning goals. She ranked sixth in the CAA in goals and seventh in points. Boileau recorded a career-high three goals and seven points in the Pride's win at Saint Joseph's in September. She also posted two goals in the season opener against Fairfield in August.


As a freshman in 2011, Boileau tallied eight goals and three assists and was named to the All-CAA Rookie Team. She now has 19 goals and six assists for 44 points in two seasons at Hofstra.
