T&T senior women s hockey team duo,
Stephanie Whiteman and Tamia Roach,
both of local club Notre Dame were
among five players from Lock Haven Uni-
versity field hockey team who earned All-
Atlantic 10 Conference honours.
A defender, Whiteman a former Bishop
Anstey East student and Trincity resident
also earned a spot on the First Team while
Rachel Valentine, Megan Wenrich (Har-
risburg, Pa/Central Dauphin) both earned
a spot on the Second Team.
Roach of Petit Valley and a past St
Joseph s Convent (PoS) student and Alyscia
Smith nabbed spots on the All-Rookie
Team. Valentine, the team s leading scorer
on the season, was also named to the All-
Academic Team, thanks to her efforts on
the field and in the classroom.
Whiteman led LHU s strong defensive
that recorded a team goals-against-average
of 0.87, the fourth-best mark in all of
National Collegiate Amateur Athletics
(NCAA) Division I field hockey.
Whiteman had a league-best eight defen-
sive saves, which more than doubled the
next best in the A-10.
Her eight defensive saves were the sec-
ond-most in Division I while she also added
two goals and four assists.
Roach was Lock Haven s second leading
scorer on the season with seven goals and
three assists for 17 points, including the
winning goal versus Towson.
She was also named the Atlantic 10 Con-
ference (A-10) Rookie of the Week earlier
in the week.
LHU which also included senior T&T
national defender Dana-Lee De Gannes in
its squad finished the season 15-5 overall.
Highlighting the season was the school s
first-ever win over UMass and the Haven s
first win over Penn State in 30 years.
Lock Haven finished the season with
seven shutouts, the fourth-most in DI.

outgunned Courts Malvern 7-3 to move within one

brook Youth Facility, Hamilton-Holder Street, Thomp-
