Field hockey gets Centre win
The field hockey team defeated arch rival Centre College 2-1 in the next-to-last game to avoid a winless record as the Pioneers finished 1-16 in a season of close losses, including two overtime contests. In all, Transy lost seven contests by the slim margin of one goal.
Junior forward/midfielder Whitney Mitchell scored a pair of goals to lead the way for Transy in the win over Centre, played on Hall Field.
Under head coach Susannah Kilbourne, the Pioneers had lost an overtime heartbreaker by 1-0 to the Colonels earlier in the season on the Centre home field.
Mitchell ended the season as Transy’s leading scorer with 12 points on six goals. Senior goalkeeper Megan Blanford, who had 13 saves in the Centre win, did not miss a start in goal the past three seasons.
