Hoover Becomes Field Hockey's All-Time Points Leader

PHILADELPHIA – Following her two goal, two assist performance in a 5-4 overtime victory against Saint Joseph’s over the weekend, junior forward Alexa Hoover became the University of Pennsylvania’s most prolific point provider in program history.

With the feat, Hoover broke a program record that stood for 35 years dating back to 1981 – surpassing Lisa Romig (1978-81) on the all-time points list with 103 career tallies via 44 goals and 15 assists. Furthermore, Hoover also tied Romig on the all-time goals list during the match, with each having 44 scores to their credit. The junior matched the feat in just 37 games with the Quakers and still has plenty of time left in her career to further make her mark in the Red and Blue record books.

Hailing from Collegeville, Pa. as a local Pennsylvania product and Methacton High School grad, Hoover has earned numerous accolades throughout her time in the collegiate ranks. She was a 2015 National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA) Second Team All-American and a First-Team NHFCA All-Region pick just a season ago and also set the single-season record for goals (27) and points (63) in a season for Penn in 2015.

Hoover and the Quakers still have plenty of time left to make their marks in the Penn record books for the 2016 season; they’ll travel to Fairfield to take on the Fairfield University Stags at 4 p.m. in Connecticut.
