GILBERT, Ariz. - The Goucher College field hockey team was honored for their work in the classroom recently, as the Gophers earned a 2017 ZAG Field Hockey/NFHCA Division III National Academic Team of Distinction award from the organization.
Field Hockey’s senior sibling duo of Kristen Shklanko (Huntington Beach, Calif./Edison) and Sarah Shklanko (Huntington Beach, Calif./Edison) were named to the 2017 All-Landmark Conference Teams on Tuesday. Kristen, a midfielder, earned First Team honors, while Sarah, a defender, was named to the Second Team at her position.
The Goucher College field hockey team (1-3, Landmark 0-0) was outmatched by the Gwynedd Mercy Griffins, 10-2, despite goals from junior Jackie Juarez (Glendora, Calif.) and senior Kristen Shklanko (Huntington Beach, Calif.).
The Landmark Conference has named 47 student-athletes to the All-Sportsmanship Team. The All-Sportsmanship Team includes one student-athlete from each institution for each sport and is selected by the players and coaches from their respective team.
Three Goucher College Field Hockey players earned All-Conference distinction when the 2016 All-Landmark Conference Field Hockey Team was released this morning. Lizzie Barminski, Rachel Crain, and Sarah Shklanko each were awarded spots on the Second Team.

Returning to the Landmark Conference field hockey playoffs for the first time since 2007, the Goucher Gophers fought valiantly but gave up a goal with no time remaining on the clock to lose, 2-1, to the Elizabethtown Blue Jays on Wolf Field today.
Goucher dominated play statistically and jumped out to a 2-0 lead, and were fortunate enough to answer quickly once the Drew Rangers closed the gap to one goal, on the way to a 3-1 victory in Madison, NJ on Drew's senior day.
