Field hockey season ends for Vikes women

Victoria's Robyn Pendleton named Canada West field hockey MVP

The UVic Vikes women’s field hockey season closed with a 2-2 tie against the Calgary Dinos on Sunday. The Dinos will host the CIS National Championships while the young Vikes squad finished with a 2-8-2 record.

Vikes Marisa Davidson and Sam Purcell scored in Sunday’s tie, while Courtney Low and Whitney Siegmann scored in the Vikes’ 6-2 loss to Calgary on Saturday.

Meanwhile, coaches voted Victoria product Robyn Pendleton as the 2011 Canada West field hockey MVP. The fourth-year kinesiology student was second in Canada West soring with six goals, which helped the UBC Thunderbirds to first place, a ninth straight conference title and a spot at next month’s nationals in Calgary.

UVic and national team player Kaitlyn Williams was named Canada West goalkeeper of the year. Williams split the fall between the two teams and was in net for both of UVic’s wins.
