NEAC Names Skylar Gilmore Offensive Player of the Week

GANSEVOORT, N.Y. — The North Eastern Athletic Conference named Keuka College freshman Skylar Gilmore their Offensive Player of the Week for Field Hockey on Tuesday afternoon.

Gilmore tallied a goal for the Wolves in their season-opening game against Brockport last Friday. The freshman, in her first collegiate game, let her first shot go just inside the circle. The ball went through a defender and into the lower left corner of the goal to tie the game with the Golden Eagles up at 1-1. Gilmore scored just 16 seconds after Brockport took a 1-0 lead.

The Keuka College Field Hockey team is in preparation for a pair of games away from home this week. The Wolves will first travel to Houghton College on Wednesday to face the Highlanders. Keuka College will then travel to Madison, N.J. to face Drew University on Saturday morning.
