PROVIDENCE, R.I. -
Providence College sophomore field hockey player Henni Tietze (Sankt Augustin, Germany) was named to the Synapse Sports Weekly Honor Roll for her performance last week. Tietze helped guide the Friars to a 2-1 record last week, including a 2-1 victory over BIG EAST foe Rutgers that earned Providence a spot in the BIG EAST Field Hockey Championship for the first time since 2009.
Overall, Tietze scored three goals last week. She started the three-game stretch with the game's first goal in a 4-1 win over cross-city rival Brown on October 16. The goal came off a penalty stroke opportunity. It marked her second penalty-stroke conversion of the season. On October 19, Tietze helped the Friars overcome a 1-0 halftime deficit as she notched the game-tying goal in the second half against Rutgers. She also helped anchor the defense, which allowed just one shot by the Scarlet Knights in the second half as Providence made its comeback. Tietze finished off the week with the Friars' lone goal against No. 22 New Hampshire on October 21. Providence fell to the nationally-ranked Wildcats, 2-1, in overtime.
With one game remaining on the Friars' regular-season schedule, Tietze ranks second among her teammates in scoring with 22 points on nine goals and four assists. Providence returns to action on Saturday, October 27 against BIG EAST foe Louisville. The game will be played at Lennon Family Field in Providence, R.I. at Noon. The BIG EAST Field Hockey Championship is scheduled for November 2 and 4 in Louisville, Ky.
