One the top netminders in the nation and a stalwart in the Maryland cage for each of the past three seasons, Ashley Hohnstine brings her highly successful playing experience to the Maryland staff in 2002. The ACC’s top savior in each of the past two years will assist the team’s marketing and media efforts while completing her degree in kinesiology.
Hohnstine, who transferred to Maryland for the 1999 season as a sophomore, quickly worked her way into the mix and split time with Terp incumbent keeper Zoe Ehrlich. The duo combined for a school-record 24 victories and helped the Terps capture the NCAA and ACC championships. Hohnstine, who led the nation with a 0.66 goals against average, was the recipient of NFHCA all-region honors that year. Maryland’s all-time leader in GAA with a 0.91 average for her career, Hohnstine posted averages of 0.93 and 0.88 in 2000 and 2001 to lead the Atlantic Coast Conference and help the Terps to three straight ACC titles during her time between the pipes.
Hohnstine’s international experience includes an invitation to the U.S. Under-21 squad in 2000 and a stint in the summer of 2001 training with the Australian National Team Hockeyroos at the Victorian Institute of Sport in Melbourne.
