The Southern Berks News - - SPORTS - By Bill Arse­nault

After just one start ear­lier in the sea­son, fresh­man Ash­ley Bonetz has moved up to the first team and has started the last four games for the Kent State field hockey team.

Bonetz, from Dou­glassville (Daniel Boone), is see­ing plenty of time at mid­field for the Golden Flashes who are 4-9 over­all and 1-1 in Mid-Amer­i­can Con­fer­ence play.

Kent had a big ef­fort against No. 4-ranked Penn State on Oct. 1 in Kent, Ohio. The Nit­tany Lions held a tight 3-2 lead at the half be­fore win­ning 5-3. Bonetz played all 70 min­utes in the game. She also started in a 3-2 loss to Rich­mond on Sept. 23, a 2-0 tri­umph over St. Louis in Sept. 24 and a 1-0 MAC loss to Mi­ami on Sept. 29.

“What at­tracted us about Ash­ley when we re­cruited her was her com­mit­ment and hard work,” coach Kath­leen Wiler said. “She’s a blue col­lar type of player and she’s been de­vel­op­ing well and has contributed to our of­fense and de­fense in the mid­dle of the field.”
