TOWSON, Md. – Susquehanna field hockey player Hunter Pitman earned Landmark Offensive Athlete of the Week for the week ending October 2.
Pitman started both games the River Hawks played this week. In the first game she totaled four shots, three on goal, in SU's 3-0 win over DeSales University.
In the second game of the week, Pitman scored three of the team's four goals for a hat trick, including the first and last goals of the game. The freshman's first goal came just over four minutes into the game when she scored an unassisted goal and followed that up two minutes later with her second goal. Pitman's third goal came in the second half when she scored on a penalty corner at the 43:03 mark.
This season, Pitman is tied for first on the team in points (16) and goals with eight. She has totaled 26 shots – second best on the team.
The River Hawks are currently 7-2 overall with a 1-1 mark in the Landmark and return to action on Wednesday, October 5 at the College of Notre Dame for a 4:30 p.m. game.
