The Tigers will look to replace a four-year defensive starter following the graduation of Catherine Estes (Fredericksburg, Va.). However, the team has the last two SAA Newcomers of the Year sharing key roles in the Tiger system, as junior Nikki Ereli (Houston, Tx.) and sophomore JoJo Young (McLean, Va.) both earned the league's top newcomer honors as freshmen.
In addition, senior Madison McAdams (Houston, Tx.) will split time in the midfield and defensive units, and classmates Violet Hoagland (Long Branch, N.J.) and Ellen Copper (McDowell, Va.) will also lend versatility to the Tigers. Expectations are for sophomore Natalie Harrington and freshmen Abbie Wrather (Houston, Tx.) and Edith Amason (Birmingham, Ala.) to add critical strength to the Tigers defensive core.
A hallmark of Sewanee's liberal arts education is the ability to study abroad. Our field hockey players are no different, and recent players have enjoyed their time in places such as: Australia, Austria, England, France, Greece, Iceland, Italy, Spain, South Africa, Switzerland, and partaking in a special WWII trip. Your ambition is your limit; you can enjoy these opportunities and still be a competitive field hockey player.
Feel free to get involved!
Current and former Tigers have worked in admissions as Arcadian tour guides, served the University as tutors, been members of the Honor Council and held Greek life leadership positions. They've also contributed to the community through volunteer work at local elementary schools, nursing homes and animal shelters.
Our players have published their research, sang with University groups, and played additional varsity, club, or intramural sports. A large number have been active in the University's Outing Program, either as trip participants or leaders. Many have successfully held work-study or off-campus part-time jobs.
Your interests and desires are your limits.
