BLOOMSBURG, Pa. - Seniors Erica Krebs (Bloomsburg, Pa./Central Columbia), Jackie Shragher (Holland, Pa./Council Rock South), and Tali Wehner (Bloomsburg, Pa./Bloomsburg) of the Bloomsburg University field hockey team will be participating in the 2018 Victory Sports Tours/National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA) Division II Senior Game which features the top senior players in the nation. This year, the Division II Senior Game will take place in conjunction with the NCAA Division II Field Hockey Championship in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania — the game is currently set for 3:00 p.m. EST on Friday, November 30, 2018 at Duquesne University's Arthur J. Rooney Athletic Field.
Wehner and Krebs, earlier this month, earned All-Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) Second Team accolades while Shragher was named to the All-PSAC Third Team. Wehner earned Second Team honors for the third consecutive year while Krebs and Shragher were named All-Conference members for the first time in their collegiate careers.
Wehner established career-highs in goals (2), assists (6), and points (10) in her final season with the Huskies from the midfield position. She led the team in assists with six, game-winning goals with three (including one in the shootout victory over Lindenwood to open the season), and in shot attempts with 35. The three game-winning tallies were the first of her collegiate career and tied her for seventh in the PSAC in that category. She was also tied for seventh in the league in assists. Wehner finished her career with three goals and 16 assists for 22 points and missed only two games in her four seasons in a Bloomsburg uniform. She was a Longstreth/NFHCA Second Team All-American as a junior.
Krebs posted career-highs in goals (5), assists (4), and points (14) as she was named to the Second Team for her first collegiate postseason honor. She finished second on the team in scoring and appeared in all 18 games, earning 17 starts. Krebs recorded the first multiple-goal game of her career, which included her only game-winning goal of the season, in the Huskies' 5-0 win at Bellarmine on September 3. Like Wehner, Krebs missed only two games in her collegiate career and wrapped up her four seasons with 14 goals and six assists for 34 points.
Shragher was a stalwart on the defensive end for the Huskies and earned Third Team honors for her first collegiate postseason conference award. She was named to the Synapse Sports All-Rookie Team in 2015. Shragher posted one assist on the year which came in the 5-1 win over Seton Hill on November 10 which enabled the Huskies to clinch the final postseason spot on the final day of the regular season. She led the team with three defensive saves putting her in a tie for third in the PSAC in that category. All told, Shragher played in all 76 games in her four-year career and finished with two goals and two assists for six points while posting 11 defensive saves.
Bloomsburg wrapped up the 2018 campaign, after its 2-1 overtime loss at Shippensburg in the PSAC Quarterfinals, with an 11-7 overall record. It was Bloomsburg's fourth consecutive season with at least ten victories and the eighth postseason appearance in nine seasons under head coach Nikki Hartranft.
