Field Hockey

* Sewanee sophomore Caroline Williams was named the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference field hockey defensive player of the week. Williams was a key player in the shutout of Transylvania last Saturday. "Caroline has been a very consistent player for us in the backfield," coach Michele Dombrowski said in a Sewanee release. "Her impeccable timing on the jab and her acceleration through interceptions allow the players in front of her to confidently go on transition." The Tigers are 2-1 and have allowed an average of one goal per match. They will host Hendrix and Rhodes in SCAC matches at 4 p.m. CDT Friday and noon CDT Sunday with a "Stick It to Cancer" theme. Sewanee wrist/sweatbands and baked goods will be for sale at both games and the football game Saturday to raise money for cancer research; donations will be accepted as well.
