Women's field hockey
FOREST -- Shenandoah had two field hockey players earn All-ODAC honors in selections announced Monday afternoon by the league.
Junior Amber VanHorn was named to the first team on defense, while classmate Sarah DeLuca picked up third-team honors as an attacker.
These two women are the first Shenandoah student-athletes to earn All-ODAC honors. They are also the first two players in program history to earn an all-league accolade.
VanHorn anchored the defense this season and had three goals and one assist for seven points in support of the offense.
VanHorn was one of just three players to start all 18 games for new coach Kim Iman-Bianchi.
DeLuca, the team's leading scorer with nine goals and three assists for 21 points, was a third-team selection.
She matched VanHorn by starting all 18 games and earned ODAC Honor Roll honors four times this season. On Sept. 24 versus Virginia Wesleyan, she scored the program's first-ever ODAC goal.
