Wake Forest's Raisa Schiller Takes ACC Field Hockey Player of the Week
Nov. 3, 2009
GREENSBORO, N.C. – Wake Forest senior forward Raisa Schiller was selected as the 10th and final Atlantic Coast Conference Field Hockey Player of the Week of the 2009 season, announced today. Schiller scored two goals in the Demon Deacons’ 5-2 victory over ninth-ranked Boston College (Oct. 31), a win that clinched the fourth seed for Wake Forest in the upcoming ACC Field Hockey Championship.
Schiller helped the Deacons open the scoring when she notched a score on a breakaway less than three minutes into the game. The Utrecht, Netherlands native provided an insurance goal for Wake Forest when she scored (unassisted) in the 59th minute by weaving through defenders to increase the Deacon lead to 5-1. Additionally, she placed all three of the shots she took on goal.
Schiller became the first Demon Deacon to earn player of the week honors this season and all six league teams received at least one player of the week nod in 2009.
The senior has notched five goals and three assists this season for a total of 13 points, and has landed 64.5 percent of her shots on goal.
The Demon Deacons will return to action on Thursday, November 5 in a re-match against fifth-seeded Boston College at 1 p.m. in the opening round of the 2009 ACC Field Hockey Championship, hosted by the University of Virginia.
