Rumler reliable for Marauders
Goalie from Daniel Boone following up breakout season, helps Millersville to 6-1 start
Samantha “Sam” Rumler had a breakout season with the Millersville field hockey team as a junior goalkeeper and she’s proving to be just as good – or better – this season.
Rumler (Daniel Boone) and the Marauders are 6-1 after opening the PSAC season with a 3-1 victory over Indiana Sept. 24 in Millersville. She’s played all 520.10 minutes and has given up four goals and has 14 saves with four shutouts and she posted three straight shutouts (Sept. 10-17) facing Seton Hill (3-0), Slippery Rock (3-0) and No. 4-ranked Kutztown (1-0). The only loss came against No. 6-ranked Stonehill on Sept. 5.
“Sam prepares and works well in training and her gameday approach is pretty matter of fact and business-like,” coach Shelly Behrens said.
Rumler played in three total games her first two years with the team, but was 13-3 with 11 shutouts while giving up just five goals with 14 saves last sea-
“Sam is incredibly respected by the team,” Behrens said. “Our kids are cheering for her in practice as much as in the games and they know they can count on her.” ALAYNA ROESENER (DANIEL
