So you might ask what is the Harrow Cup? 

I asked the exact same question when I came across the iuhoosiers.com’s article.

According to Harrow Sport’s website,

The Harrow Cup is a post-collegiate women’s field hockey tournament with a $10,000 winner takes all cash prize. Six teams will compete in the weekend long competition in Philadelphia, Pa.

This year will mark the inaugural year of the Harrow Cup.

So the next question you might ask would be how does this fit in with Indiana University?

Liz Sanders is not an IU Alumni, but she is an Assistant Coach for the Women’s Field Hockey team.

During her college career,  Sanders helped James Madison University to a pair of NCAA appearances. She ranks No. 5 in school history with 51 goals and 121 points. Sanders is tied for JMU’s single-game record for goals scored with five, achieved during her senior campaign.

Now to related them all together, we must ask what does Liz have to do with the Harrow Cup?

Field Hockey vs. Duke, won in overtime 3-2, 8/28/11_Mike DickberndLiz was picked by Harrow Sports to be the Captain of the Vipers.  Liz was chosen not only because of her outstanding college career, but also due to her continuation of the sport during her adult life. She currently runs the Adult Field Hockey Club in the Bloomington area, Head to Toe Field Hockey and is excited about being able to give the Midwest community more opportunity to play high level Field Hockey.

As mentioned above, she is the Captain of the Vipers.  Click there to see their team roster that Liz put together during the draft last month. She even has a Hoosier in her line up!

I never had the pleasure of coaching Morgan, but was her teammate on the Midwest High Performance team for a few years. I immediately added her to my draft board, and was so excited that she was still available for me to add to our roster. The Vipers will be full of Hoosier Pride!

The tournament will be played this summer.  If you would like to know more about the Harrow Cup, visit the website here.  If you would like to read the full article iuhoosiers.com wrote, click here.
