Grumbein selected to play in NFHCA Senior Game

WASHINGTON – CUA senior Liz Grumbein has been selected to participate in the 2010 NFHCA Division III Senior Game, which will take place on Sunday, November 21 on the campus of Christopher Newport University in Newport News, Va.

Grumbein has helped lead the Cardinals to new levels of success this season as CUA is currently ranked 14th in the nation with a record of 13-3. 

A native of Allentown, Pa., Grumbein has started all 16 games for CUA and been the leader of a defense that has posted eight shutouts and ranks first in the Landmark Conference in scoring margin, shutouts, goals against average, goals allowed, and goals allowed per game.

For her career, Grumbein has started 54 games for the Cardinals and she earned All-Region and All-Conference accolades in 2009.

With Grumbein’s selection to the Senior Game, it marks six straight years in which a Cardinal has earned the honor.  Marian Cassilly was CUA’s 2009 representative.

Grumbein and her Cardinal teammates return to action this Wednesday when they travel to Pennsylvania to take on the second-seeded Susquehanna Crusaders in the 2010 Landmark Conference Tournament semifinals.  Start time is slated for 4:00 and there will be live video of the game shown here.
