Tess Jedeloo named PSAC Field Hockey Athlete of the Week

Shippensburg University junior Tess Jedeloo (Amsterdam, The Netherlands/Hervormd Lyceum Zuid) was named the inaugural Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) Eastern Division Field Hockey Athlete of the Week on Wednesday afternoon by the league office.

Jedeloo totaled four goals and an assist last weekend as the Raiders dispatched No. 9 Mount Olive, 4-1, and then blanked Belmont Abbey, 6-0, to open the 2023 season.

Against No. 9 Mount Olive, Jedeloo assisted SU’s first goal of the season when her shot was deflected into the cage. She then scored the game’s third goal with a hard shot from the middle of the circle from a penalty corner.

Against Belmont Abbey, Jedeloo recorded her first career hat trick – it was a natural hat trick as she scored the game’s second, third and fourth goals. The first goal was a tap-in from a pass, the second was a hard shot from the top of the circle directly off a penalty corner insert, and the third was a wicked reverse hit in space.

Jedeloo and Breann Craley of Kutztown were each tied for the early lead nationally with four goals entering this week, while Jedeloo held the early lead nationally with nine points.

A reigning All-American who was selected to the 2023 NFHCA Watchlist, Jedeloo’s honor marks the third PSAC Athlete of the Week award of her career.
