2019 NCAC Field Hockey Athletes of the Week

September 3rd
 

Madisyn Bunke, Ohio Wesleyan
(Grand Rapids, MI/Forest Hills Central)

Ohio Wesleyan freshman Madisyn Bunke recorded a hat trick in her Battling Bishop collegiate debut, helping OWU to a 4-0 victory over Houghton on Friday. She also scored the only goal in a 1-0 victory over Nazareth on Saturday. Both goals were game-winners for the freshman. 

 

September 9th
 

Meg Murphy, Earlham
(Chico, CA/Chico)

Earlham sophomore Meg Murphy recorded a pair of shutouts in goal while leading the Quakers to a pair of victories last week. Murphy had five saves in a 1-0 overtime win over Wilson College on Saturday. In Sunday’s contest against Sewanee, she charted five stops in the cage while leading the Quakers to a 2-0 triumph over the Tigers. The two wins have propelled Earlham to a 3-1 record to open the 2019 season, the program’s best start since 1987 (also a 3-1 record through four games).

 

September 16th
 

Ashley Barno, Ohio Wesleyan
(Bexley, OH/Bexley)

Ohio Wesleyan senior Ashley Barno tallied the only goal of the game as the Bishops came away with a 1-0 victory against Wooster on Saturday. Barno notched the goal in the final minute of the first half. Ohio Wesleyan improved to 4-1, which is tied for the best record in the conference.

 

September 23rd
 

Victoria Holman, Kenyon
(Cottesloe, Australia/Perth Modern)

Kenyon junior Victoria Holman helped the Ladies to a pair of shutout wins over Ohio Wesleyan, 1-0, and Rhodes, 2-0, last week. Holman helped the Kenyon defense allow a mere three combined shots, two for Ohio Wesleyan and one for Rhodes. Most impressively was Kenyon’s effort against Rhodes All-American Hayley Mules, a player that set Southern Athletic Association (SAA) records last season in goals (24) and points (63).

 

September 30th
 

Vivian Super, Allegheny
(Granville, OH/Granville)

Allegheny freshman Vivian Super tallied two goals and an assist in a 4-0 victory over Ferrum on Sunday. The win was the first in program history for the Gator field hockey team. Super’s pair of goals were also the first multi-goal performance in Allegheny history.

Sarah Metzmaier, Kenyon
(Gibsonia, PA/Pine-Richland)

Kenyon sophomore Sarah Metzmaier opened the week by steering Kenyon to a 2-1 win over Denison.

Four days later, Metzmaier racked up three goals in Kenyon’s 6-0 win at Allegheny. The sophomore forward now leads the NCAC with 12 goals, nine of which were scored in Kenyon’s last five contests.
