    KOHLI MOVES UP
    Redshirt senior and two-time all American Jakie Kohli's first tournament back in over a year after recovering from shoulder surgery was quite productive for the Hoosiers. Almost no time was lost before Kohli scored the first goal of the season for Indiana.

    After scoring eight goals in the Michigan Kick-Off, Kohli has now moved uo to fourth place on the career goals scored list at IU with 188, surpasssing Nicole Redder with 182. Kohli only needs 19 more before she moves into third place currently held by Brooke Zimmerman.

    Kohli scored 80 goals in her junor season alone (a then single-season record) and head coach Barry King thinks the IU career scoring record is well within Kohli's reach.

    FAMILIAR FOE
    Indiana will play third-ranked UCLA for a second time in just two weeks. The Hoosiers gave all they had against the Bruins when they faced them at the Michigan Kick-Off on Jan. 20, but a second half scoring drought cost them the match 8-4. Indiana's defense was stifling during the first half, giving Indiana the advantage for most of the first half as the teams went to the locker room tied 3-3.

    Freshman goalkeeper Jessica Gaudreault had her best showing of the tournament, tallying eight saves on 25 shot attempts for the game.

    SCHROEDER IN THE MIDDLE
    Freshman Candyce Schroeder was the only freshman to start for the Hoosiers on offense this season, doing her best to hold down the middle at Center. The San Clemente, Calif. native had a great debut for Indiana, scoring three goals at the Michigan Kick-Off and forcing several turnovers on defense.

    Schroeder helped lead San Clemente High School to the 2011 CIF Championship while earning CIF Player of the Year honors in the process. She was also named League MVP, Second Team All-County, and First Team All-Southern California

    ANCHORING THE D
    Freshman Jessica Gaudreault was named the starting goalkeeper for Indiana during the Hoosiers trip to Ann, Arbor, Mich. Gaudreault had a great first showing, racking up 26 saves during four matches played. Gaudreault competed in the FINA Wold Youth Water Polo Championships in Perth, Australia for Team Canada this December.

    GERRITY FITS RIGHT IN University of Maryland transfer Rebecca Gerrity had no trouble fitting in with the Indiana offense in her first tournament as a Hoosier. Gerrity had six goals for IU on the weekend, including a huge showing against Colorado State, where she had four goals on only five shot attempts. Gerrity's four goals against CSU was a new colligate career high for her. Her previous career high was three goals against Sonoma State March 22, 2012.

    Gerrity joins the IU team from the Terrapins where she played in all 26 games as a reserve, ranked fourth on the team in shooting percentage (.405), fourth on the team in steals (31) and seventh in goals (17).
