The Southern Berks News - - SPORTS - By Bill Arse­nault For Dig­i­tal First Me­dia

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-

son.

“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
