Senior Sarah Gatehouse of the national champion Golden Bear field hockey team added another illustrious award to her file as she was named one of just five female student-athletes as a Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) Fall Top 10 Award winner, announced by the league office Friday, Jan. 19. Gatehouse is a two-time First Team All-American and was voted the PSAC Defensive Athlete of the Year, along with being named to the All-PSAC First Team for the second-straight season. The Sinking Spring native was the backbone of a KU defense that finished first in the nation in goals allowed (11) and goals-against-average (.497), starting all 22 games at center back. She ranked second on KU in points (19) and assists (5) and was fourth in goals scored (7). Gatehouse also received the PSAC Champion Scholar and NCAA Elite 90 awards.
