KUTZTOWN – The Kutztown University field hockey team, embarking on its 50th season, was picked fifth in the 2018 Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) Preseason Poll, released on Wednesday afternoon, as voted on by the league’s coaches.

KU was tabbed sixth in the poll to begin last season, and now has its third top-five voting in the last four years.

The top six teams at the end of the regular season qualify for the conference playoffs.

Kutztown finished the 2017 season with an 11-7 overall record, highlighted by three victories over ranked opponents, including a 3-0 win at then No. 1 and 2017 National Champion Shippensburg. It is the third straight 10-plus win season for sixth-year head coach Marci Scheuing and the Golden Bears, and the most since they tallied 12 in 2015.

KU returns two All-Americans and All-PSAC First Team performers in junior forward Kyra Wozniak and junior midfielder Mackenzie Fuhrman. The duo burst onto the scene as sophomores last season, reaching new career-highs by more than doubling their production from their freshman campaigns.
