Nov. 22, 2005
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Two Indiana field hockey players earned
All-America honors as announced by the National Field Hockey Coaches
Association (NFHCA) on Tuesday. Senior midfielder Kayla Bashore became the first Hoosier to be named a first team All-American, while junior forward Lydia Schrott was selected second team All-America.
The Hoosier pair led IU to the their winningest season in
program history with an overall record of 17-5 and an Elite Eight
finish in the NCAA Tournament. Both All-Americans combined for 29 of
Indiana’s 63 goals this season. Additionally, both were named first
team All-Big Ten and first team All-Region.
Bashore, who tallied 29 points off 12 goals and five assists,
collected the program’s first Big Ten Player of the Year honor and was
a 2003 second team All-America selection. The Shoemakersville, Pa.,
product posted two hat tricks this season against Pacific (Sept. 9) and
Lindenwood (Sept. 25). Along with fellow senior Mallory Reabold,
Bashore was a North/South Senior All-Star selection and is the first
Hoosier to be named to the U.S. Field Hockey National team. Bashore is
the Hoosiers’ career shots (184) and defensive saves (7) leader.
Schrott, who sits as Indiana’s all-time career goals leader
with 29, led the Hoosiers to the quarterfinal round of the NCAA
Tournament with her second career hat trick against No. 5 North
Carolina. The Quarryville, Pa., standout led the Indiana scoring
offense this season with 17 goals and 37 points. Schrott earned the Big
Ten’s first Offensive Player of the Week honors for her hat-trick
performance against nationally-ranked Northeastern on Aug. 28.
