Kutztown University's Mia Kepler of Wall Named to NCAA Field Hockey Tournament Team


KUTZTOWN, PA (12/01/2023)-- A quartet from the national champion Kutztown Field Hockey team continued to rack up postseason recognition as Alyssa Eager (Mechanicsburg, Pa./Cumberland Valley), Sarah Gatehouse (Sinking Spring, Pa./Wilson), Mia Kepler (Wall Township, N.J./Wall) and Greenleigh McGehee (New Tripoli, Pa./Northwestern Lehigh) were named to the 2023 NCAA Division II Championship All-Tournament Team.

Mia Kepler of Wall Township, NJ (07719).

McGehee scored arguably the biggest goal in program history, as her redirected shot found the back of the cage to break a 1-1 tie with just 8:33 left to play in the national championship game victory over defending champion, East Stroudsburg, back on Nov. 19. The junior midfielder finished with three goals and three assists and started all 22 games this season.

In the two national semifinal and final, combined, Kepler made 12 saves and allowed just two goals, seeing 14 shots on goal. The senior goalie, along with Eager and Gatehouse in front of her, helped break the previous program record with 14 shutouts this season.

Kutztown set a new program record for wins in a season with 19 in 2023. It is the first All-Tournament honor for all four Golden Bears.
