Radford opened its field hockey season with two wins, beating Towson 3-1 and Lock Haven 4-3, at a tourney at Longwood over the weekend.


Senior defender Lynsey Daughtrey (Lakeland), now a four-year starter for Radford, picked up an assist in the win over Towson and took two shots on goal against Lock Haven.

Daughtrey was fifth on the Lady Highlander team with 10 points last season. Freshman midfielder Jennifer Hedrick (Lakeland) is new to RU’s squad.
