Wehner Named Synapse Sports Second Team All-American

SYNAPSE SPORTS ALL-AMERICAN TEAMS
BLOOMSBURG, Pa. - Junior Tali Wehner (Bloomsburg, Pa./Bloomsburg) of the Bloomsburg University field hockey team earned her second postseason honor following the 2017 campaign as she has been named a Second Team All-American from Synapse Sports. Last month, Wehner earned a spot on the All-Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) Second Team.

The All-American honor is the first of Wehner's collegiate career. She has been named to the All-PSAC Second Team in each of the past two seasons.

Wehner had another strong season in the Maroon and Gold as she started all 19 games for the Huskies and recorded three assists during the season - two at Queens in the season opener on September 2 and one against Mercyhurst on October 7. She also registered a pair of defensive saves during the year - at home against Lindenwood on October 8 and at Mansfield on October 11.

The junior will enter her senior season in 2018 with one goal and ten assists for 12 points in 56 career games (55 starts).

The Huskies closed out the 2017 campaign with an overall record of 10-9. Bloomsburg earned the fifth seed in the PSAC tournament but ultimately fell, 1-0, at fourth-seeded West Chester in the conference quarterfinals. It marked the third straight season, and sixth time in eight seasons under head coach Nikki Rhoads, of making the conference playoffs. Bloomsburg also earned double-digit victories for the 36th time in the last 37 seasons dating back to an 8-5-3 record in 1980.
