HOCKEY ADDS NINE

Shenandoah University Head Field Hockey Coach Ashley Smeltzer-Kraft announced her 2014 recruiting class on July 30.

Smeltzer-Kraft, the 2013 ODAC Coach of the Year, welcomes nine women into her program for the upcoming season.

Shenandoah finished 10-10 last year and its 6-2 ODAC mark earned the Hornets a runner-up finish in the regular season league race.

Shenandoah returns all but three players off of that team, including reigning ODAC Player of the Year Ashley Cross and All-ODAC honorees Presha Merritt and Kelani Bailey.

Smeltzer-Kraft added four forwards, three defenders, one midfielder and one goalkeeper into that group of 13 returnees.

The newcomers hail from five different states, including the program’s first-ever player, Jenna Rampale, from Illinois. Rample is a goalkeeper.

Four of the remaining eight women are Virginia natives while natives of Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland and Pennsylvania round out the group. 

“This class was the first in which I was able to recruit them for a full year,” Smeltzer-Kraft, who took over the program in February 2013, said. “These women are excellent field hockey players and students. I know they are as excited as I am to get the season started.”

The Hornets open the 2014 campaign on Saturday, Aug. 30 at Dickinson.

FOOTBALL ANNOUNCES RECRUITING CLASS

Shenandoah University Head Football Coach Scott Yoder announced his second-ever recruiting class on July 29.

Yoder, who led the Hornets to four wins, including victories over the 2012 and 2013 ODAC champions in his first season as head coach, welcomes 35 offensive, 33 defensive and three kicking specialists into his program for the 2014 campaign.

The class hails from 10 states with 47 coming from the Commonwealth of Virginia.

Twelve of the student-athletes are Maryland natives with three from Pennsylvania and two each from West Virginia and Florida.

Single players from Delaware, New Jersey, North Carolina, Tennessee and Texas round out the class.

The Texas native, Tyler Fisher, is the program’s first-ever player from that state.

“The staff worked very hard over the past 12 months to bring in this class,” Yoder said. “These young men are prepared to compete with our returnees beginning at the start of camp in two weeks.

The Hornets report for the start of practice on Wednesday, Aug. 13, with the season opener coming on Saturday, Sept. 6, at Gallaudet.

WOMEN’S LACROSSE TO HOLD PREP CAMP

Shenandoah University Head Women’s Lacrosse Coach Lindsey Lutz will hold a one-day college prep camp on Sunday, Aug. 3.

Lutz, who has led her Hornets to runner-up finishes in the regular season standings in each of the past three seasons, will hold the one-day camp for high school-aged players interested in playing lacrosse at the college level.

The camp will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the artificial turf of Sprint Field at Shentel Stadium.

The morning will consist of warm-up and skill work followed by competitive games in the afternoon.

Camp tuition is $75.00 and registration is limited to 50 players.

This is the third straight year that Lutz has held a prep camp.

“In coaching club lacrosse in the summer, I have found that high school players benefit from experiencing how the game is played and practiced at the college level,” said Lutz. “It was a very positive experience for the women who participated last year and we look forward to having the same type of atmosphere this year.”
