Kaitlyn  Hiltz

Hometown:
Virginia Beach, Va.

High School:
Frank W. Cox

Experience:
Class of 2011


Hiltz led the nation in scoring in 2006 with a phenomenal 50 goals, scoring in 23 consecutive games, a streak that ranked third nationally. The Eastern region Player of the Year, Hiltz was one of only five high school athletes to play in the EPTC National Championship in the summer of 2006 where she played for Team California with current Virginia assistant coach Christina Kirkaldy. The Virginia Beach native led her Cox high school team to the state championship, earning All-State honors along the way. She is a two-year member of the Olympic Development Select team, and was on the team in 2006 that took first place in the Marteeny Tournament along with Devon Burnley and current Cavalier Traci Ragukas. Hiltz scored the game-winner in the 1-0 victory over the Phoenix on that tour. A five-time National Festival participant, Hiltz attended Junior National camp in 2006 and was on the honor roll at Cox for four years (2003-2006) and earned the Scholar-Athlete Award each year. Her sister Liz is a rising third-year on Virginia's team.

"It is the balance of everything Liz and Kaitlyn were looking for," said Brad Hiltz, Kaitlyn's father. "The academics, the student honor code, athletics, their teammate's, pride, prestige, family and location all combined to make a winning combination. Throw in the new coaching staff of Madison, Spice and Kyser and you have the opportunity to be part of the hottest, up and coming field hockey program in Division I."
