Allyson Osborne doesn't look like a field hockey goalie.
The Solanco senior, who stands no more than 5’-3” and weighs 125 pounds tops, impressed Anna Myer, head coach at Hartwick College. So much so that Osborne may be the incoming freshman goalkeeper Meyer needs.
As a result the Solanco senior received a substantial grant to both guard the goal and matriculate in a subject yet to be determined. Osborne was contacted by Meyer following the 2016 season and after visiting the Oneonta, N.Y., college, signed up in an early admission program most colleges and universities offer.
