YorK CoLLEGE oVErViEW York College of Pennsylvania is a private-sector, independent institution of higher education, which focuses on offering baccalaureate degree programs in the arts and sciences, business administration, education, public affairs, and nursing. Students may also enroll in courses leading to the associate degree and master’s degree. The College draws its 4,600 full-time undergraduate and 1,500 part-time and graduate students from some 30 states and 36 foreign countries. Typically, 50% of York’s freshmen hail from Pennsylvania; 30% from New York and New Jersey; and 15% from Maryland, Washington, DC, Virginia, and Connecticut. Others come from states up and down the East Coast and from abroad. Most of York’s part-time and graduate students reside and are employed in the greater York Area. The College occupies a 190-acre, park-like campus, just beyond the York city (pop. 50,000) limits, in the rolling hills of the south central part of the state. Close to the heart of “Pennsylvania Dutch” country, York is one hour from Baltimore; two hours from Philadelphia or Washington, DC; and four hours from New York City, Pittsburgh, or Richmond. Nearly half of its undergraduate students reside in college housing in the vicinity of the campus. York College envisions itself as a center of affordable academic excellence and has received favorable national recognition for its success in offering a higher education program of high quality at a tuition rate substantially lower than the rates charged by institutions of similar type, scope, and distinction. York’s effective control of tuition costs stems principally from the long-term, generous support of the College by its friends in the York community and its alumni. This support has provided both superior debt-free physical facilities and permanent endowment resources sufficient to fund institutional scholarships and financial aid for needy students. York uses this fiscal strength in turn to provide a kind of “scholarship” to each of its students in the form of relatively modest charges for tuition and campus housing. York College is accredited by the Commission on Higher Education of the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools and has specialized accreditation for its business, nursing, allied health, and recreation programs. York College is proud of its ongoing efforts in gender equity. As per the Equity in Athletics Disclosure Act of 1994, information regarding YCP’s gender equity statistics is available for review in the office of the Assistant Dean for Athletics and Recreation. Students can request a copy of the report from the Assistant Dean for Athletics and Recreation.

2009 Spartan Field Hockey preview

2009 York College Field Hockey -2-

With every new season comes new hope. New hope that this year will be better than the last. New hope that this will be the breakthrough year. New hope that maybe, just maybe, this could be the year. That new hope rings true for the York College field hockey squad as they enter the 2009 campaign. “We are very optimistic about what we could accomplish this season,” Spartan head coach Jamie Swartz said. “We learned and developed as a team, as an entire program last year. That development could lead to some good things this fall.” The Spartans do in fact have much to be optimistic about as 11 players who saw significant time in 2008 return to the Spartan lineup this season, including a trio of all-conference performers. Senior forward Megan Spangler, senior defender Veronica Eltz, and senior goalkeeper Claire Rekitzke are each coming off All-Capital Athletic Conference seasons and will look to build upon those successes in 2009. “Those three players give us a strong core of talent,” Swartz commented. “It helps us that they each bring something different to the field. To have proven allconference players throughout the field will give us an edge this season.” Spangler had a breakout year in 2008 and comes into the 2009 campaign as York’s top returning goal-scorer. She tallied 36 points, second only to career goals-scored leader and since-departed April McFarland, on 16 goals and four assists en route to her first All-CAC selection. Gifted with brilliant stick skills and a knack for finding the back of the cage, Spangler will be called upon to step up her game even more this season. “She is one of the top scorers in our conference, no doubt about it,” Swartz raved about her All-CAC forward. “She consistently puts herself in the right position and she is not afraid to mix it up in front of the cage. Spangler could be an extremely potent offensive force for us this year.” Eltz brings an aggressive and consistent style to York’s defensive third. A tough player who is exceptionally fit, Eltz became York’s top defender last year as she continually thwarted opponents’ attacks. Not only a superb defender, Eltz has been a strong leader for the Spartans. As she now heads into her second year of captaincy, the senior will look to galvanize the York squad and lead them up the CAC ladder. “Eltz does so many good things for this squad,” Swartz commented. “She is an outstanding defensive player, who belongs in the upper echelon of players at her position. Not only that but she is also a leader in the truest sense of the word. She does what needs to be done and gets everyone to follow suit.” Over the past two seasons, Rekitzke has proven to be one of the conference’s best net minders, evidenced by her back-to-back All-CAC selections. She started 20 of York’s 21 contests last season, posting a 2.71 goals against average. If Rekitzke, who is a superb communicator with exceptional technical skill, can stay focused throughout the entire season in 2009, she could be the key cog in a very successful season. “Rekitzke has so much ability,” Swartz said. “Her combination of experience and skill is unsurpassed. She could do some incredible things for us this season.”

Joining the aforementioned Spangler in the Spartans’ offensive ranks are five returners who could make significant impacts on the 2009 squad. Despite the loss of McFarland, Swartz believes this year’s offensive group could provide even more firepower. “We will not be looking for just one or two players to do the majority of the scoring this season,” Swartz said. “When you have that situation it can be easy for the defense to key-in on those players and take them out of the game. But with the offensive unit we’ll have this season, as long as players step up, we will be able to spread the ball around and get production throughout our front line.” Sophomore Allison Roush, junior Katie Dawkins, junior Heather Re, junior Kelly Kreamer, and sophomore Rachel Houck provide the Spartans with a strong group of forwards who, along with the potential of several new recruits, could give York a quality offensive output this year. Roush returns to the Spartan lineup as the Green and White’s second top-returning scorer from 2008. Her 11 assists was tops on the Spartan side last year as her ability to set up scoring chances makes her a very dangerous forward. Dawkins will look to be the beneficiary of Roush’s passing prowess as she is poised for a banner year. A tough player who possesses quality skill, Dawkins’ three goals and two assists in 2008 should prove to be a solid launching pad for much greater numbers this season. Re comes back to the lineup following an injury that sidelined her all of last season. Now healthy, Re’s ability in the offensive third, as well as her hunger after missing the 2008 campaign, will give the Spartans an additional weapon in front of the cage. Kreamer, who has consistently improved over her two previous seasons, could breakthrough this year and bring some added punch to the frontline while Houck will look to capitalize on a strong off season and the collegiate experience she gained in 2008. The midfield poses a question mark for the secondyear Spartan mentor, as York could prove slightly thin through the middle of the field. Junior Casey Lawrence, one of only four Spartans to start all 21 games last year, returns as the most experienced midfielder. A scoring threat, Lawrence posted 21 points on four goals and six assists in 2008 while her scrappy play can ignite the Spartan attack. She is a quick midfielder who will look for more action in the middle of the field this season. Becky Reeves is another thirdyear player on a squad fraught with juniors. Reeves is an all-around solid player who should become more of a leader in 2009.


A coachable athlete, Reeves will bring intelligent and simple play to the Spartan midfield. Sophomore Brittany Simmons came on strong in her rookie campaign providing glimpses of good things to come. That future potential could come to fruition in 2009 as Simmons has a great opportunity to solidify herself in the Spartan lineup. She is a strong player who sees the field well, enabling her to anticipate and foil opponents’ attacks while her athleticism allows her to push forward for the Spartans. Along with the three returners, Swartz also will look for several Spartan newcomers to step in and fill key roles in the midfield. “We like where we are at in the midfield with our first-line players,” Swartz said. “Our concern however is depth. We are looking for some of our new players to make an immediate impact through the midfield whether coming off the bench or winning a starting role. It will be interesting to see who steps up.” The defense looks to be York’s strongest and deepest unit heading into the season. Along with Eltz, the Spartans have three experienced and exceptionally talented defenders to start the year while the newcomers will bolster the unit. Senior Julie Reahl, junior Joan Shultis, and sophomore Colleen O’Rourke join Eltz to form a formidable back line that could prove very stingy. Reahl provides the Green and White with a center back who has been through the rigors of three collegiate seasons. Reahl was one of those four Spartans to have started all 21 games last season and has appeared in 62 of a possible 63 games over her strong career. She communicates well from the center, possesses the ability to make tough tackles, and puts herself in the right places at the right times evidenced by her team-high eight defensive saves in 2008. Shultis played in all 21 games last year, including 20 starts, and has the opportunity to blossom into a top defender this season. Her continuity with her teammates and comfort in York’s defensive scheme will allow her to more freely utilize her ability to anticipate plays thwarting opposing attacks. O’Rourke posted a strong rookie campaign as she also started in 20 Spartan contests. She possesses a great combination of strength and athleticism while her full season of collegiate experience should prove valuable this year. “We are very happy with where we are defensively coming into camp,” Swartz said. “We have talent and experience throughout our backs which we will look to capitalize on this year. Our ability to keep teams off the scoreboard will be key to our overall success.” Adding to York’s defensive potential are returning goalkeepers Rekitzke and junior Maggie Schlauch. Rekitzke heads into camp as the Spartans’ #1 while Schlauch will look to push the incumbent for time in the cage. Schlauch is a talented net minder who will benefit from a full off-season of development. While both are talented, Swartz expects them to consistently improve throughout the season. York’s several newcomers could provide that added spark and push both Rekitzke and Schlauch. “There is no question that we have exceptional talent in our goalkeeping unit,” Swartz said. “As long as our goalkeepers stay focused and sharp throughout the entire year, we could have one of the best units in the conference.” Entering her second season, Swartz believes the Spartans could have a great season given several key factors. The first of which is a renewed confidence. “Our confidence will be much higher than where we were at the start of last year,” Swartz said. “The players know what we as a coaching staff expect of them, and they have seen, based on our 2008 successes, that we have the potential to be a very good squad.” Along with increased confidence, the Spartans will look to improve their performance in road games as well as display the ability to play at a high level in every contest. “Bottom line we need to get better away from home,” Swartz said, commenting on York’s struggles as the visiting team in 2008. “But besides that we need to bring a focus and a swagger to every game. To believe that we can play with any team and beat any team will be a huge key for us this season.” The Spartans will begin the season, a year in which hope abounds, on September 4 as they open up at home against Alvernia with a 4:00 pm nonconference tilt. “We will be ready,” Swartz said when asked about the upcoming season. “No doubt about that. We will be ready.”

#19 Veronica eltz Senior defender / Midfielder

*captain

Hanover, pa. delone catholic

Veronica Eltz returns for her final season in the Green and White as one of the conference’s best defenders. A 2008 AllCapital Athletic Conference performer, Eltz started all 21 games for the Spartans last season as she proved exceptionally durable. Eltz is a tough and physically fit athlete which allows her to be consistently aggressive on the defensive end. Gifted with strong leadership qualities, Eltz enters her second season as a York captain as she looks to lead the Spartans to an even better season in 2009.

#66 Claire rekitzke Senior Goalkeeper

Seaford, del. Seaford Senior

Claire Rekitzke embarks on her final season with the Spartans having established herself as one of the best goalkeepers to ever man the cage for the Green and White. Rekitzke has appeared in 57 of a possible 63 career Spartan contests, while drawing starts in 54 of those games. In addition to her lengthy experience, she is a quick and very athletic netminder who is technically sound with solid form. Rekitzke is a two-time All-CAC goalkeeper who should be among the region’s best netminders in 2009.

#21 Megan spangler Senior Midfielder / Forward

Myerstown, pa. eastern lebanon county

Megan Spangler enters her senior season as one of the most dangerous offensive players in the CAC. She is a top-notch scorer, evidenced by her 16 goals and four assists last season, who simply has a knack for finishing. Spangler sports exceptionally strong stick skills and, as a left flank attacker, combines well with her teammates. A 2008 all-conference choice, Spangler will look to repeat her strong performance from last year, providing the Spartans with a consistently potent offensive threat.


#5 Heather re Senior Forward

Hackettstown, n.J. Hackettstown

Heather Re returns to the Spartan lineup having spent last season recovering from a knee injury. During the 2007 campaign, Re made herself a staple in the starting unit, drawing 16 starts over her 20 games played. A tough and physical forward, Re has the ability to finish chances in front of goal, adding to York’s offensive capabilities. Hungry following a year on the sidelines, Re will look to shake off the rust early in preseason camp and quickly become one of the Spartans’ top players on the attacking end.

#16 Julie reahl Senior defender

eldersburg, Md. liberty

Julie Reahl lines up for the Green and White for her senior campaign, looking to close out a quality career. York’s steady sweeper, Reahl effectively coordinates the Spartan defense as well as makes solid tackles when the need arises. She has appeared in 62 out of a possible 63 career games, while starting every game in each of the last two seasons. Over those three seasons, she has shown a knack for making big plays in key moments. Her experience, combined with more consistency, should allow her to become one of the CAC’s top defenders.

#2 Katie dawkins Junior Forward

easton, Md. easton

Katie Dawkins begins her junior campaign following a solid 2008 season. Dawkins, who appeared in 19 of York’s 21 contests drawing 14 starts, molded into a dangerous forward for the York side. She tallied eight points on three goals and two assists as she successfully returned from an injury the previous year. Dawkins see the field exceptionally well and, along with her passing ability, can create numerous scoring chances for the Spartans. If Dawkins can find the back of the cage on a more consistent basis, 2009 could be a truly breakout season.

Appearing in 11 games last year, including one start, Kreamer posted her first career score against Goucher. Kreamer is a very coachable player who will strive for increased development in 2009, as she looks to continue her upward trend.

#20 Casey lawrence Junior Forward

abbottstown, pa. delone catholic

Casey Lawrence begins her junior campaign as a strong performer for the Spartans who has flown slightly under the radar in her first two seasons. She posted 14 points on four goals and six assists last year as she was York’s fourth leading scorer. A scrappy and fiesty midfielder, Lawrence keeps possession well and is able to provide a quality link from the defensive to offensive third. She also provides excellent service into the Spartan forwards when inserting corners. In 2009, she will look to get on that radar and post a breakthrough year.

#8 becky reeves Junior Midfielder / defender

Forest Hill, Md. north Harford

Becky Reeves begins her junior season in the Spartan Green and White as one of York’s top returning defensive players. Reeves appeared in 14 games for the Spartans last season, \making starts in 11 of those contests.

#00 Maggie schlauch Junior Goalkeeper

Breinigsville, pa. parkland

Maggie Schlauch enters her second season in a York uniform after adjusting to the collegiate game last season as the Green and White’s top reserve netminder. She appeared in four games during her rookie season, drawing one start toward the end of the year. Building confidence throughout the 2008 campaign, Schlauch will continue to look for improvement this year as well as push for the #1 job. A talented and athletic goalkeeper, an improved work rate for Schlauch in 2009 could lead to more minutes in the Spartan cage.

#3 Joan shultis Junior defender / Midfielder

Hanover, pa. delone catholic

Joan Shultis comes into the 2009 season looking to solidify herself as one of the conference’s top defensive players. Shultis nabbed starts in 20 games for the Spartans last season spending a majority of her time as York’s right back. A strong defensive player that anticipates the game exceptionally well, Shultis consistently puts herself in position to make plays for the Green and White. As she enters her junior campaign, Shultis will look for added focus throughout each 70 minutes, a factor that could result in an all-conference caliber performance.

#18 rachel Houck Sophomore Forward

airville, pa. kennard-dale

Rachel Houck embarks on her sophomore season following a year of development and growth as a rookie in 2008. Houck is a fast player, a trait that every team covets, who is also an exceptionally hard worker, a combination that bodes well for her future success. Houck has and will continue to significantly improve her stick skills while bringing a positive attitude to the York squad on a daily basis. As Houck furthers her overall game and develops into a consistently solid player, she could see more minutes up front this season.

#26 brittany simmons Sophomore defender / Midfielder

leola, pa. conestoga valley

2008 all-capital atHletic conFerence Field Hockey Squad YORK, Pa. - Salisbury sophomore midfielder Kandice Hancock and St. Mary’s senior midfielder Emily Smithson were named Co-Players-ofthe-Year and led the 2008 All-CAC Field Hockey team. Hancock, along with Rookie-of-the-Year Tara McGovern and Coach-of-the-Year Dawn Chamberlin, led Salisbury to the 2008 CAC championship. It’s the seventh-straight year a Sea Gull earned Player-of-the-Year honors and 12th time in the last 13 years. Hancock joins former Salisbury standouts Melissa Webster (ROY in 2001, POY in 2004) and Brittany Elliot (ROY 2002, POY in 2005) as the only field hockey players in conference history to win both the Rookie-of-the-Year and Player-of-the-Year awards. Smithson, who helped St. Mary’s place second in the regular season and advance to the conference championship game, is making her third All-CAC team appearance. She is the first SMC player to ever be named the CAC Field Hockey Player-of-the-Year. McGovern is the seventh Salisbury player to win the Rookie of the Year award since 1998. Chamberlin, who has guided Salisbury to 14-straight CAC titles and 21 NCAA Tournament berths in the last 22 years, was chosen by her peers as the Coach-of-the-Year for the 12th time in the last 14 years. Sea Gulls joining Hancock and McGovern on the All-CAC team include forward Lauren Correll junior forward Beverly Beladino, sophomore forward Courtney Webster, sophomore midfielder Katie Fost, and junior midfielder Michelle Rowe on the second team. Correll is a first-team choice for the second straight year while Beladino and Rowe are also making their second appearance on the All-CAC team. Joining Smithson in representing St. Mary’s on the All-CAC team were junior Julia Puzak as a first-team back along with second-team sophomore midfielder Allie Skiest. Mary Washington and York both placed four players on the All-CAC team while Stevenson and Wesley each earned three all-star nods. Senior April McFarland, the 2005 CAC Rookie-of-the-Year, represented York on the 2008 All-CAC first team while Spartan junior teammates Megan Spangler, Veronica Eltz, and Claire Rekitzke were second-team honorees. McFarland and Rekitzke were named to the all-star squad for the second straight year.
