Caroline Diehl scored 48 minutes into the game and that was all the Roanoke College field hockey team needed for a win in the opening round of the Old Dominion Athletic Conference tournament Tuesday. RC took a 1-0 win over Randolph-Macon in Salem.
The Maroons improved to an 11-7 overall record and a 6-3 mark in the ODAC with Tuesday’s win. They ended the regular season with a 1-0 win over the same Randolph-Macon team last Saturday in Ashland, earning them the fourth seed in the tournament. Emilee Wooten scored with an assist from Lindsey Keyes for the only goal of that match.
The ODAC announced the Player of the Week awards for fall sports on Monday afternoon and Wooten was named ODAC Field Hockey Player of the Week. The attacker now has 21 goals on the season, ranking her second in the ODAC in goals scored. Her six game winning goals are tied for first and her 46 total points are tied for third in the ODAC statistical rankings.
Semifinals in the conference field hockey tournament are today and the championship is Saturday at the highest remaining seed. Roanoke will play at top-seeded Washington & Lee today while Shenandoah will host either Lynchburg or Bridgewater in the other semifinal.
