Sensenig named to First Team, Ephrata tandem Second Team
Cocalico senior Carrie Sensenig was a First Team selection while Ephrata senior Nicole Wilkerson and junior goalkeeper Katie Hammaker were named to the Second Team.
Sensenig, whose sister Dana was a US Olympian on the 2008 squad, scored nine goals and added six assists this year as a forward/midfielder on the Lady Eagles’ squad.
A three-year starter at Cocalico, Sensenig, was also a First Team Lancaster-Lebanon League All-Star as well as an All-League performer.“I was very surprised and quite honored because there are a lot of good hockey players in Pennsylvania,” she said Tuesday. “It was very humbling to be selected as one of them.”
Both Wilkerson and Hammaker were key cogs in helping Ephrata win the Section Two title this past fall.
Wilkerson, a midfielder, started all four years of her high school career. This past season, she scored five goals and added 14 assists. She was a First Team Section Two All-Star and an All-League performer.
Hammaker has also started every game of her high school career, and is the top player returning to the Ephrata lineup next year.Like Wilkerson and Sensenig, she was a First Team Section Two All-Star and a member of the All-League team. This past season, she faced 243 shots and made 202 saves for an 86 percent saves percentage.
Ephrata Coach Rhoda Mountz, who recently announced her retirement, commented on the selection of her two players.
“I was so happy to hear about Katie and Nicole,” she said Monday. “Katie is a dynamic goalkeeper. she was a very vital part of our team’s defense, and our team’s success this season. It is a reward and honor that is well-deserved. Nicole is a total team player. She controlled, distributed the ball very well, set up attack plays, executing offensive corners, earning her the team’s MVP honors. This All-State recognition is well deserved for her as well.”
