Field Hockey: Young Buckeyes Look to Seniors for Leadership

Written August 11th, 2012 by Gary Russell II

In her 16th season last year Buckeye Field Hockey Coach Anne Wilkinson took her team to the NCAA tournament after a 12-9 record. Returning to the tournament will be no small task in 2012. Wilkinson is entering her 17th year as head coach of the squad and, even though she faces many challenges, she still feels good about the 2012 team.

The Buckeyes only have three seniors returning this year but all three are entering their fourth year as starters. In addition to being seniors, Danica Deckard, Berta Queralt, and Laura Napolitano have all been named tri-captains by Wilkinson for the upcoming season.

“I’m excited about the leadership of this team for this upcoming season,” head coach Anne Wilkinson said. “Danica, Laura and Berta have the experience to lead a team, playing in more than 150 games combined the last three years.”

Deckard is returning from an outstanding 2012 campaign in which she led the team in goals with 11 and was tied for the team lead in points with 24. Those numbers led her to second team All Big Ten honors. In addition to that Danica is also a two-time recipient of the Academic All Big Ten honors. Read More
