Jan. 8, 2017 — A good start towards the Indoor Pan Ams

The United States indoor national team took a split squad to the Rohrmax Cup indoor field hockey tournament for a good run-out before trying to qualify for the next Indoor Hockey World Cup.

The States did pretty well, with the USA Red team winning the championship with three wins and a draw in five matches. Indeed, the only team to beat them was the USA Blue team, which won 5-0 in the opening game of the entire tournament as Newtown Square Episcopal Academy (Pa.) star Corinne Zanolli had a pair of goals.

But the USA Red team, led by UNC-bound Meredith Sholder, was made of sterner stuff. The Reds beat the host side, SV Arminen, 3-2, with Sholder having a goal and an assist against the team boasting the FIH World Indoor Player of the Year,  Asia Wieloch of Poland.

In the final game of the tournament, the Reds got a pair of goals from Holland Council Rock South (Pa.) star Riley Donnelly to beat the Switzerland U-21 national team to win the Rohrmax Cup.

The tournament is in preparation for the Pan American Hockey Federation’s Indoor Championship, which will qualify teams to the 2018 Indoor World Cup in Argentina.
