COLUMBUS, Ohio – Erin Little, a sophomore from Acton, Mass., has transferred to Ohio State after one season at Boston University and will suit up for the Buckeyes in 2022.
Little, who will have three year of eligibility remaining, started 13 of 17 games for the Terriers as a freshman in 2021. A back, she helped BU’s defense hold five opponents to one goal or less. She took one shot on the season, which was on goal.
“We’re really excited to have Erin join the Ohio State field hockey family,” said head coach Jarred Martin. “She brings speed and a competitiveness that will be a great addition to our backline. I was so impressed on her visit with how she carried herself. She is mature and focused when it comes to her play and her academics. She’s trying to be the best student-athlete she can be.”
While at Acton-Boxborough High School, Little scored 41 goals and also had 41 assists. And, she was a winner. Her team won four league titles and Little earned Boston Herald All-Scholastic honors three times.
At the national level, in 2021 Little was a U19 Nexus Championship selection.
“The Ohio State environment and culture is designed for the elite student-athlete and I can’t wait to see Erin thrive during her time here as a Buckeye,” said Martin.
