Field Hockey

Field hockey dominated this past Homecoming Weekend against 15th-ranked DePauw University and Earlham College.

“The DePauw win has been something that we’ve been working on since I got here,” Head Coach Jacque DeMarco said. “The [Kenyon] program hasn’t beaten them since 2007.”

DePauw scored early, but Kenyon tied the score in minutes  with a goal from Weezie Foster ’18. The Ladies wasted no time — Rachel Hall ’15 scored the winning goal, 11 minutes later.

“Beating DePauw this weekend was definitely one of the highlights of my field hockey career at Kenyon,” Hall, who was named NCAC Player of the Week, said. “Each and every one of my teammates played their best during that game.”

The Ladies played tough defense with the help of new goalkeeper Sarah Speroff ’18, who faced 22 shots.  “It felt really good to start strong,” Speroff said. “Starting the conference with two wins is a pretty big deal for us, especially against DePauw.”

The Ladies’ continued into Sunday against the Quakers, winning 7-2. Kenyon scored five consecutive goals within the first 25 minutes.

“Everybody was in and really worked on passing and just working together as a team,” said DeMarco. “It was nice to see a lot of different people score.”
