Tigers Sweep SCAC Field Hockey Weekly Honors
October 30, 2008
October 30, 2008, Greencastle, Ind. - DePauw seniors Beth Seegers and Becca Rojek have been named Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Field Hockey Offensive and Defensive Players of the Week, respectively, for their performances October 20-26. The Tigers defeated Oberlin, Hendrix and Rhodes during the week.
Seegers (pictured left) scored the eventual game-winner at Hendrix with a goal during a penalty corner early in the first half and did an outstanding job transitioning the ball from the defense to the attack.
In Sunday's victory at Rhodes she scored the Tigers' first goal late in the second half off the post on a penalty corner then scored the game winner with just under three minutes left in the second overtime.
Rojek (pictured right) led the DePauw defensem, showing outstanding tackling skill both in the open field and inside the circle. She was part of a defensive unit that gave up only 15 shots and 11 corners for the weekend and 20 and 16, respectively, for the week.
Rojek played all minutes in both SCAC victories including overtime and did an exceptional job keeping the offense at bay as the Tigers picked up their 4th shutout of the season.
The 12-2 Tigers are ranked first in the Great Lakes Region and travel to Transylvania on Saturday before wrapping up SCAC regular season play on Sunday at Sewanee.
