PHILADELPHIA – The National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA) has announced the players who will participate in the 2015 Victory Sports Tours/NFHCA Division I Senior Game, and University of Pennsylvania senior midfielder Elizabeth Hitti is among the 38 women listed.
Hitti is one of just three Ivy League players named to the rosters; the others are Columbia’s Christina Freibott, and Cornell’s Marisa Siergiej.
Hitti has had an outstanding season so far, and enters the weekend second on the team with 28 points (6g, 16a). Hitti, who is the national leader in assists per game, has tied the program’s records for assists in a season (16) and career (32). In both cases, she has tied Nancy Lock, who had 16 assists back in 1980 and collected 32 during a playing career that spanned from 1978-81.
Penn (12-2, 4-1 Ivy League) heads to Brown this weekend, facing off with the Bears Saturday at noon. If the Quakers win that game, they will host Princeton on Saturday, Nov. 7 in a game that has Ivy League title and NCAA Championship implications for the second time in three years.
