Burlington, women’s field hockey go hand-in-hand

oua_logoFour field hockey players from Burlington had a strong presence on the Ontario University Athletics 2013 all-star team announced on Thursday (Oct. 24).

Two of the players – Ally Evanyshyn and Kathryn Williams- are teammates with the Toronto Varsity Blues, who placed four on the all-star squad after finishing the season with an 11-0-1 record.

Evanyshyn, a fourth-year forward, led the league with 15 goals. This is her second all-star nod after being recognized in 2011. Goalkeeper Kathryn Williams appeared in nine games for the Blues and backstopped the defending champions to another standout regular season. She led all OUA goalkeepers, conceding only four goals throughout the season.

Gryphons’ third-year midfielder Erin Houle helped Guelph finish in second place with 9-1-2 record. Houle had four goals to finish second in team scoring and earn her first all-star selection. Teammate and fifth-year all-star forward Amy Wise (Surrey, B.C.) led the Gryphons with six goals and clocked major minutes, starting in all 12 games.

The Western Mustangs (5-5-1) fourth-year forward Katelynn Roganowicz netted a career-high 13 goals this season, good enough for second place in the OUA scoring race. This is her second honour after being named an OUA all-star a year ago.
