Field Hockey Senior Profile: Phoebe Willis

Senior Phoebe Willis

In the days leading up to the Monday, Oct. 29 Senior Day game against Princeton, VirginiaSports.com will have profiles of all five seniors. Today we hear from striker Phoebe Willis.

Willis was hampered by injuries her first three seasons with the Cavaliers. This year, in addition to being healthy, she moved up to a striker role from defense, scoring the first goal of her career against Miami (Ohio). She also had two assists this season, one at William & Mary and the other against New Hampshire. Willis has played in 15 games this season, including three starts.

Watch below as Willis discusses her favorite Cavalier memories as well as her plans for the future.

The Cavaliers conclude the regular season on Monday, Oct. 29 when they host No. 2 Princeton at 4 p.m. There will be a ceremony after the game to honor all five members of the 2012 senior class. Admission is free to all 2012 regular-season home games at Turf Field.
