(LEWES, Del.) - Alia Marshall is a scoring threat for the Cape Vikings Field Hockey Team. She possesses good speed, one of the captains. That skill set has led her to land a scholarship at Northwestern.
"It is a really strong program and I love the coaches and when I went on an unofficial visit there I got to hang out with the team and they seemed like a great bunch of girls and I wanted to be a part of it," said Marshall.
Cape's Field Hockey Coach Kate-Windett-Austin said when Marshall was a freshman she knew that she was going to be a playmaker.
"She came in and started on that championship team and she was playing with a lot of girls who are playing at the college level now and she was not scared and when we saw that she could play with Tess Bernheimer, Erin Coverdale, and all of those other girls that are in college we knew,"said Windett-Austin."Most freshman cannot handle that pressure of stepping in and taking on a big role right away."
