The NFHCA selected 60 participants nationwide to participate in the Senior Game, and then Sands was among 12 alternates chosen. Alternates would take the spot of student-athletes who have been selected as participants but are unable to compete in the Senior Game.

Sands is having her most successful season to date, as she has a career-best four goals and one assist in 14 games for nine points.

In her previous three seasons, Sands has earned Second Team All-ODAC accolades three times and garnered a spot on the NFHCA National Academic Squad on three occasions. Over her career, she has totaled nine goals and three assists for 21 points in 69 contests.

The W&L field hockey team is currently 10-4 overall and 5-0 in the ODAC. The Generals have won six games in a row, and host Bridgewater on Saturday at 2:00 pm.

The 2017 Division III Senior Game will be held on Saturday, November 18, at 5:00 pm at Bellarmine University.
