HANOVER, N.H. - Kelly Hood (Berlin, N.H.) of the Dartmouth field hockey team has been selected as one of just 38 players from across the country to play in this year's National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA) Division I Senior Game.

The 2011 NFHCA Division I Senior Game will be held at the University of Louisville on Saturday, Nov. 19 at 3 p.m.

Hood, one of the top players in Dartmouth program history, will represent the Big Green and the Ivy League as one of just two individuals selected to play from the conference. Cornell's Alex Botte is the other Ivy Leaguer making the trip to participate in the annual contest. This will be the second straight year that Cornell and Dartmouth will be the only two schools representing the league.

Hood's selection marks the second year in a row that Dartmouth will be represented at the Senior Game as Virginia Peisch (Koenigstein, Germany) was honored with a spot on last season's roster.

Big Green head coach Amy Fowler was also at last year's game, played at the University of Maryland, coaching the home squad alongside Denise Zelenak of Drexel.

Hood is currently the program's all-time leader in both goals (58) and points (134). Her 14 goals and 33 points lead her team and rank second in the Ivy League this season.

Hood, Fowler and the rest of the Big Green take on Cornell Sunday at noon in the final regular season home game of the 2011 season.
