COLUMBUS, Ohio – Senior Nikki Trzaska was announced as one of 38 members of the 2020 NFHCA Division I Senior Team on Wednesday by the National Field Hockey Coaches Association.
The in-person 2020 NFHCA Senior Game was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. During the 2021 Virtual Coaches Caucus, the NFHCA Division I membership agreed to continue to recognize a selected group from the graduating class of 2021 who either played or would have played their senior season during the 2020-2021 academic year. All ten Division I conferences and five NCAA regions that sponsor field hockey are represented on the list of 2020 honorees.
The selected student-athletes were nominated by their NFHCA member coach and were chosen based on their career accomplishments.
A captain and the most experienced player on the Buckeyes’ spring 2021 roster, Trzaska graduated on May 9 with her degree in marketing. She played in 72 career games and capped her playing days off by helping the Buckeyes reach the Big Ten Tournament Championship Game for the first time in 11 years. Trzaska was fourth on the team this spring with 11 points (four goals, three assists) while starting all 15 games.
Trzaska will take her marketing degree and put it to use next as a client service team associate for AlphaSights in New York City.
