Tiffin University will look to build a G-MAC winning streak as they travel to Ohio Valley and Walsh in conference action April 4-6.
The Dragons (5-5, 1-0 G-MAC) will take on Ohio Valley (4-3) April 4 and then travel to Canton to take on Walsh (8-2) on April 6.
Statistically Ohio Valley and Walsh dominate the G-MAC charts but context is important. None of the Fighting Scots or Cavaliers opponents are nationally ranked, allowing the two teams to build some impressive numbers in pre-conference play. The Dragons, meanwhile, are 5-5 overall, with four of those losses coming against Top 25 competition. Those include narrow losses to 12th ranked Colorado Mesa 14-12 and 4th ranked Lindenwood 10-9. The Dragons' lone G-MAC game this season was a 15-1 blowout of Alderson Broaddus.
Ohio Valley is led by Kayla Stewart (3rd in goals per game with 3.67) and Taylor Baker (3rd in goals per game with 3.67). Emily Prentice leads the conference in assists with 2.83 and is also first in points (6.33), ground balls, and caused turnovers.
Walsh, meanwhile, has a more balanced attack and is led by goalkeeper Mikaela Faus, who is 5th in GAA with 8.95 and is 6th in saves. Hannah McFeeters is 8th in goals (2.78) and 9th in points (3.22), while Ellen Lawrence is 8th in assists (1.44).
Tiffin is led by All Region standout Elle Hamilton, who is lighting up the nets by ranking 2nd in G-MAC goals (3.80) and ranking 4th in points (4.60), ground balls, and draw controls. Ashley Osbeck is 10th in assists (1.30), while goalkeeper Kat Schneeberger is 3rd in saves (9.40) and 6th in GAA (9.07).
