KOHLI CONTINUES TO MOVE UP
After scoring eight goals in Ann Arbor, 10 during the Hoosiers first trip to California, and four at the Bison Invitational, Kohli moved up to fourth place on the career goals scored list at IU with 202, surpasssing Nicole Redder with 182. Kohli only needs 5 more before she moves into third place currently held by Brooke Zimmerman who has 206.
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.
After the Stanford Invitational, where she recorded 10 more steals, Kohli has also moved up to second on IU's all-time career steals list with 248, surpassing
Molly Fonner with 232. First place on the list is stll held soundly by Deb Simone with 326.
ANCHORING THE D
Freshman Jessica Gaudreault was named the starting goalkeeper for Indiana this season. She has 79 saves on her 13 matches played this season. Her best showing of the season came against 10th ranked Princeton. Gaudreault was like a brick wall against the Tigers' offense, tallying up 12 saves and only allowing two goals on 24 shot attempts. She had eight saves, tying her previous career high, in the first half alone.
Gaudreault competed in the FINA Wold Youth Water Polo Championships in Perth, Australia for Team Canada this December.
GERRITY FITS RIGHT IN
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.
Becca started her first tournament in the Bison Invitational and anchored the Hoosiers on offense all wekend. She had seven goals during the tournament, including two against the highly touted Princeton goalie. Gerrity is second on the team in goals scored this season with 18, coming right behind Kohli who has 22.
Gerrity joins the IU team from the Terrapins where she played in all 26 games as a reserve last year, ranked fourth on the team in shooting percentage (.405), fourth on the team in steals (31) and seventh in goals (17).
Last year, Shae Fournier put together one of the most productive seasons in program history headlined by a single-season school record of 95 goals. She also finished the season with team-highs of 86 steals and 95 field blocks, to go along with 41 assists. She recorded 29 multi-goal games, including 10 contests with at least four scores.
SCHROEDER IN THE MIDDLE
Coming back from a hand injury that left her sidelined at the Stanford Invite, Schroeder put up big offensive numbers during the Bison Invitational last weekend in Lewisburg, Penn. She scored a career high three goals against Wagner.
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 and Second Team All-County.
DISHING THE ROCK
McNaught also tied the reocrd for most assists in a single game with 5. McNaught has started every game for the Hoosiers thus far in the 2013 season and has nine goals, eight assists, nine steals, and five field blocks so far.
