For the fourth consecutive week, senior Meredith Campbell (Media, Pa./Archbishop Carroll) of the University of Scranton field hockey team has been named the Landmark Conference's Offensive Athlete of the Week, the conference office announced on Monday.
For Campbell, this is also the sixth time in her career at Scranton that she has been named Landmark Conference Offensive Athlete of the Week, as well.
This past week, Campbell had a hand on five of the eight goals the Royals scored, as Scranton pushed their record to 14-0 overall and 5-0 in the Landmark with victories over Drew (5-0) and Juniata (3-1). With the victories, Scranton also clinched a Landmark playoff spot and will host at least one match in the tournament.
Against Drew, Campbell scored two goals and added an assist in a dominating five-score victory. Then, on Saturday, she made history with her two-goal performance, as she gave the Royals an early 2-1 lead they would not relinquish in their first victory over Juniata since 2011.
With her first goal, Campbell broke a 32-year program record for most points in a season, as she now has 57 points for the year. Meanwhile, the second goal of the game tied Campbell for the record for most goals in a season at 25, which was also set in 1985 by Denise Atkinson.
Overall, Campbell has scored a goal in 13 of 14 games for the 2017 season. She has also scored multiple goals in three straight matches, accomplishing that feat in seven matches on the year for the Royals.
Campbell and the rest of the University of Scranton field hockey team returns to action on Saturday, as they host Goucher in their regular season home finale. The Landmark Conference match, which will also serve as the programs Senior Day, starts at 1 p.m.
