Player Profile: Georgia Foulds

It's not uncommon for a hockey team to allow five goals in one game. It is, however, pretty uncommon to allow five goals over six games. Meet blueliner Georgia Foulds, a junior from Hummelstown, PA and a key part of a unit that has put up that impressive stat, including an active shutout streak of 137:34. Prior to joining the team this season, Georgia played for the Hershey Jr. Bears, where she scored the goal that sent the team to the USA Hockey Tier II, 19-Under national championships in 2011. She also went to Tier I nationals in 2010 as a member of the New Jersey Rockets.

How did you get into hockey?

My mother took me to the local rink when I was 10 years old for lessons. One day she took me to the pro shop and asked if I wanted the white figure skates or the black hockey ones, little did I know the weight of that decision. I stopped the three other sports I was playing after my first hockey practice to concentrate on hockey and never looked back since.

Tell us a little about your playing background - previous teams, etc.

I started on the Princeton Tigers a squirt, playing boys through senior year of high school. Played varsity on the boys team in high school and then played for the Tier I NJ Rockets U19 girls as a senior. I played for the Hershey Jr. Bears at Penn State Harrisburg and now I'm playing for the club team at Penn State main.

What is your most memorable hockey moment?

When I scored the game-winning goal at districts that sent my Hershey Bears team to Nationals in California my freshman year of college.

Why did you choose to attend Penn State?

The students, the academics, the sports, the spirit. I love Penn State.

Any nicknames?

Not yet on this team. Simba - back on some past hockey teams. I was always a bit rough out on the ice but since my knee injury last season I've backed off a lot.

What about crazy superstitions?


Do you have a role model, either in or out of hockey? If so, who and why?

I like to do my own thing, but sometimes when I make decisions I try and think of what my dad would pick in order to make the best decision. So I suppose you could say he's a model in some sorts.

What is your major, and what are your career goals after graduation?

I'm a Nutrition major but I want to be a Physicians Assistant - meaning graduate school to be a PA for two years after my undergrad. I'm hoping to attend Penn State Hershey Med.'s PA program.
