Hempstead, NY - Hofstra seniors Genna Kovar and Arielle Williams have been named to the 2011 Preseason All-Colonial Athletic Association Field Hockey Team, the CAA announced Wednesday evening.  In addition, Pride senior Amy-Lee Levey and junior Krizia Layne were honorable mention selections to the preseason squad.

Kovar, a senior forward from Hampton Bays, New York, is a two-time All-Mideast Region and All-CAA selection. She recorded nine goals and six assists last season. The senior forward will look to return to form that brought her 2009 NFHCA third team All-America honors after battling injuries last season. Williams, a senior midfielder from Port-of-Spain, Trinidad, led the Pride and ranked sixth in the league in goals (13) and eighth in points (31) last year.


Levey, a senior defender from Harare, Zimbabwe, returns to action this season after missing the 2010 season while rehabilitating from injuries sustained in a car accident in 2009. The 2009 All-Mideast Region and All-CAA second team selection tallied eight goals and two assists in 20 games two seasons ago. Layne, a junior forward from Arima, Trinidad, recorded seven goals and three assists in 12 games last season before suffering a knee injury and missing the final six contests.


The Pride open their 2011 regular season this Friday, August 26 when they face #4 Connecticut in the Husky Invitational in Storrs, Connecticut.  Game time is noon. Hofstra will face #20 Stanford on Saturday, August 27 at 1 p.m.
