DIVISION I BREAKDOWN
● With Niki Bream in the goalie cage, Dallastown (18-1-1, 13-0) was able to capture its first YAIAA field hockey tournament title and end Red Lion’s run of championships in the third year of the event. Both teams should be poised for another run.
Bream enters her fourth year as the Wildcats’ starting goalie, and coach Jeri Myers also will rely on three-year players Ashley Chioda, a center midfielder, and Molly Childress, a forward. Like Bream, both are seniors. Two-year starters include senior forward Taylor Kline, senior back Cory Reever, junior midfielder Bryna Cook and junior back Haylee Anders. Cook defended the opposition’s top forward in most games, and Myers said she expects an increased scoring role from her this year.
