LANCASTER, Pa. – The Duke field hockey program featured nine student-athletes selected to compete in last weekend’s Young Women’s National Championship, held at the home of USA Field Hockey in Lancaster, Pa.

Four Blue Devils advanced with their squads to Tuesday’s gold medal match, with rising senior Haley Schleicher notching a goal and an assist for Spirit and incoming freshman Josie Varney finding the back of the cage for the U.S. U-19 team. Varney was joined by Duke teammates Leah Crouse and Hannah Miller on the U-19 squad, which rounded out the five-day tournament with a 4-2 victory.

Duke assistant coach Ralph Boersma serves as an assistant coach with the U.S. U-19 team. In addition, rising sophomore Olivia Sahaydak scored for Dream in the 7th/8th place contest.

Following the Young Women’s National Championship, Schleicher and fellow rising senior Jillian Wolgemuth were among the athletes tabbed to move on to the next step in USA Field Hockey’s Olympic Development Pathway, the Women’s Development Team Selection Camp. That event is slated for December at Spooky Nook Sports in Lancaster.
