RICHMOND, Va. – Being ranked second on any school records chart is pretty impressive for any student-athlete. When you take into account that there is another season on that student-athlete's career, it's even more impressive.
That's the case for rising senior Kelsey Scherrer, who was named to the National Field Hockey Coaches' Association All-South Region team for the second consecutive season.
This past fall, the Chesapeake, Va. native became the first VCU player since Kelly Yoder (1993-94) to earn All-CAA First Team accolades in consecutive seasons.
She appeared in all 18 games for the Rams, finishing with a team-high 11 goals and 24 points.
Scherrer will enter next fall just one goal away from tying Alycia Yoder's school record of 38 career goals. She also ranks second in career points, just eight behind Yoder's all-time record of 97.
The Rams lose only one player from last year's roster, who was just one game away from making back-to-back CAA Championship appearances. Scherrer will lead the squad under the tutelage of new Head Coach Shannon Karl, who will be in her first season at the helm of the Rams next fall.
