RICHMOND, Va. – Apparently the number "2" is a powerful thing when it comes to the VCU Field Hockey team. Junior Kelsey Scherrer (#2) and freshman Kendell Combs (#22) both earned All-CAA accolades recently, marking the third straight year multiple Rams have been honored by the conference.
Scherrer became the first VCU player since Kelly Yoder (1993, 94) to earn All-CAA First Team honors in consecutive seasons. She played in all 18 games for the Black & Gold, finishing with a team-high 11 goals and 24 points. Eight of her 11 goals came during conference play.
The Chesapeake, Va. native will enter her senior season just one goal away from tying Alycia Yoder's school record of 38 career goals. She also ranks second in points with 89, just eight away from Yoder's all-time record of 97, and tied for eighth all-time with 15 assists.
Combs gave VCU an All-Rookie representative for five of the past six seasons. The Suffolk, Va. native had a successful freshman campaign with three goals and four assists for a total of 10 points.
The Rams will return all but one player for the 2012 campaign next fall.
