Korean Adoptee on the USA Field Hockey Team

Thanks to K@W for updating the list of KADS participating in this year’s olympics.  It appears that there is a Korean Adoptee on Team USA’s Field Hockey Team.  Take a look.

Kayla Bashore

Hockey start
Bashore began playing field hockey at the age of 15, when the coach at Hamburg High School coach approached her about the possibility of playing the sport. Four years later, she had secured a scholarship to play at Indiana University. She is the only Hoosier on Team USA.

Go Hoosiers
Bashore led Indiana to their first ever NCAA tournament appearance in her senior season, 2005. The 2005 Big Ten Player of the Year, she was also a first team All-American and was a finalist for the Honda Award representing College Field Hockey’s top player. Bashore made her first appearance on the senior national team in August of that year.

A student athlete
Bashore graduated from Indiana with a degree in both biology and chemistry, no small feat for a Division I athlete, who spent time during her collegiate career on the junior national team and USA developmental squads.
