Hood Field Hockey Players to Appear on WFMD's Frederick County Sports Sunday
FREDERICK, Md.--Three members of the Hood College field hockey team, Nicole Killmer, Amanda Blakeslee and Miriah Stone, will appear as this week's featured guests with host Pete MacLeod on WFMD Radio's Frederick County Sports Sunday program Sunday, April 29 at 12:05 p.m.
Blakeslee, a senior, and juniors Killmer and Stone, have accepted an offer from USA Athletes International to play in Scotland this summer and will travel to Scotland June 1-10 to play for the USA College team.
The pre-recorded show will air Sunday on 930 AM, and will subsequently be archived online on WFMD's audio vault. The players talked about their experiences playing field hockey at Hood and their anticipations for field hockey in Scotland.
While travelling to Scottish cities like Edinburgh, Glasgow and Stirling, they will participate in four scheduled field hockey games.
"Playing field hockey will be the highlight of my trip, but I also have family from the area which will make this so interesting to me," said Blakeslee, a native of Glen Burnie. Blakeslee ended her Hood career with one assist and four defensive saves. Blakeslee played 59 games in the number 20 jersey. She hopes to add depth to the defense on the USA team.
Killmer, from Clinton Corners, N.Y., will also support the USA defense ending her second season of Blazer field hockey with one goal, two assists and two defensive saves. Killmer was an offensive threat on the Blazer corners and played a strong defensive role. Her flexibility of play will be an asset to the team.
Stone, a Thurmont, Md., native, also offers a similar flexibility. Preferring to play a more offensive midfield position, she acted as an insert on offensive corners and as a fly on defensive corner. She ended the season with one goal, three assists and one defensive save.
"I am so excited for this opportunity to play in another country," said Stone. "This will be great experience for next year's season."
