Columbus, Ohio – Last Friday afternoon, senior Maddy Humphrey put the icing on the cake of her stellar four-year career with the Buckeyes with an appearance at the 2017 Senior All-Star Game held in Louisville, Ky.
In order to be invited to the game, athletes must have been considered one of the top-38 seniors in America, and Humphrey easily met that cut.
Although she was unable to participate in the game, Humphrey’s field hockey skills were abundant in 2017, and as a matter of fact, throughout her whole career. Her name is all over the Ohio State record book and she will go down as one of the most skilled attackers in program history.
A perennial goal scorer for all four years, Humphrey led the Buckeyes in goals scored in three of the past four years. Her freshman and junior campaigns were highlighted by scoring 12 goals in each season, and this year she paced the Buckeyes with nine goals. Her 43 goals scored slots her in the No. 8 position in the record book behind Yesenia Luces (44 goals).
Not just focused on scoring goals, Humphrey paced the Scarlet and Gray in assists in 2016 and 2017 with nine and seven dimes respectively. In the points tallied category, Humphrey was the top-point scorer three out of the past four years with 32 points as a freshman, 33 as a junior and 25 as a senior. The 114 in her career are the seventh most to be scored by a Buckeye.
Having a knack for being clutch, 10 of Humphrey’s 43 career goals were game winners, which is tied for seventh most in program history.
