2017 U SPORTS Women’s Field Hockey Championship: UBC shut out York to hoist seventh straight McCrae Cup on home turf
U SPORTS – VANCOUVER (U SPORTS) – It was the storybook ending for fifth-year University of British Columbia women’s field hockey captains Sarah Keglowitsch and Sophie Jones as the pair hoisted the McCrae Cup as the U SPORTS national champions for a record seventh straight time in the program’s history.
Championship Schedule & Results
A pair 2-0 victories over the York Lions, Nov. 3-4, sealed the best-of-three championship series in Vancouver and if that wasn’t enough both Keglowitsch and Jones pocketed a goal in the final, while Keglowitsch was named the Championship MVP.
“This is the best way I could end my five-year career at UBC,” said Keglowitsch, who along with Jones and Hayden, join an elite group of UBC field hockey players to win five national titles including the recently-graduated Hannah Haughn and Gabby Jayme, as well as current assistant coach Poonam Sandhu. “I play with the best teammates and to win at home with my family and friends just can’t get much better than that.”
