Field hockey players earn state, national honors

Five members of the Penn Manor High School field hockey team recently earned state and national honors following a successful 2013 season.

Rachel Suter, Kayla Herr and Desiree Landis were named to the All-State Field Hockey first team, and Cassie Kline and Michele Enck were named to the All-State second team. Rachel also was name to the High School All-American second team, joining 15 other players from Pennsylvania and eight other states.

“They’re truly deserving, and they all earned these honors,” said Matthew Soto, Penn Manor field hockey coach. “All five of them are great field hockey players.”

The All-American team was selected by the National Field Hockey Coaches Association, and the All-State team was determined by the Pennsylvania Coaches Association.

The Comets compiled a 23-4-1 record this season and were 11-1 in Section 1. The team won the Lancaster-Lebanon League championship, placed third in the District III tournament and was a PIAA state semifinalist. In addition, Rachel Suter was named L-L League Co-Player of the Year.
