Ashley Heckard Named PSAC Field Hockey Player of the Week


BLOOMSBURG-- Bloomsburg University field hockey player Ashley Heckard (Millerstown/Greenwood) has been named the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) field hockey Player of the Week for the period ending Sept. 30th.

In three games last week, Heckard racked up seven goals as the Huskies climbed back to the top of the conference standings with three wins. In a 6-1 win over then-unbeaten Kutztown, Heckard scored a hat-trick, and followed that up with two goals each against non-conference foe Mercyhurst and conference-rival Slippery Rock.

For the season, Heckard is second in goals scored for Bloomsburg with 15 and has also added two assists. In her career, Heckard is tied for fourth all-time at Bloomsburg in goals scored with 50.

Bloomsburg is 11-1 on the season and will play at Millersville on Wednesday at 4 p.m.
