WINCHESTER, Va. - Shenandoah University Head Field Hockey Coach Ashley Smeltzer-Kraft announced her preseason roster Wednesday morning.

Smeltzer-Kraft, who led her Hornets to the program's first-ever ODAC title last fall, has four newcomers to add into her championship program.

The 2016 ODAC Coach of the Year has nine starters among her 19 returnees off of that championship squad. Four of those women: Kayla Alderman, Taylor Hayes, Elizabeth Pardo and Morgan Payne, were All-ODAC honorees.

The four newcomers: Raven Barter, Daphne Leighty, Isabella Morande and Lauren Strohman represent all four positions on the field as Morande is a goalkeeper, Strohman a defender, Leighty a midfielder and Barter a forward.

Morande, from Gloucester, and Barter (Virginia Beach) are Virginia natives with Leighty coming to SU from Milford, Delaware and Strohman from Fallston, Maryland.

"We were very fortunate to have a young team last year and so we were able to be very focused in our recruiting," Smeltzer-Kraft said. "These four young women know that they have to work very hard to earn playing time, and I expect them to learn from the excellent example our returners have set on the field and in the classroom."

The squad opens its season on Saturday, August 26 with an exhibition versus Juniata before traveling to Hood on September 1 for a 3 p.m. non-league contest.
