Gettysburg College is located 3 blocks from the center of Gettysburg, a town whose history attracts millions of visitors annually. The campus, which includes a former Civil War hospital and the office where President Dwight D. Eisenhower wrote his memoirs, sits next to the Gettysburg National Military Park, which offers many historical and recreational opportunities.
Campers will enjoy playing on the beautifully manicured home field of the Bullets, Bobby Jones Field. Dedicated in 2004, Bobby Jones Field is home to the Gettysburg softball team. The field features brand new dugouts, an outfield fence 215 feet from home plate, state-of-the-art scoreboard and quality bullpens. The facility was named in honor of Robert '65 and Sharon Jones.
Ashley Mowery, a former field hockey standout at Messiah College, enters her second season as a field hockey and softball assistant coach at Gettysburg College in 2012-13.
As a four-year starting goalkeeper at Messiah, Mowery helped guide the Falcons to an outstanding four-year run from 2006-09. The team advanced to the NCAA Division III Final Four in three of her four years and as a senior in 2009, she helped Messiah to a 22-1 record and a berth in the national championship game. Mowery was a three-time All-American, a four-time all-region selection, and a three-time All-Commonwealth Conference honoree.
After graduation, Mowery served as an assistant coach at Messiah in 2010, working with the goalkeepers and helping the Falcons to a second-straight appearance in the national championship game.
Mowery also competed in softball for one season at Messiah, but was forced to stop playing due to a severe head injury. However, she stayed involved in the sport by serving as an assistant coach at Camp Hill H.S. in 2008-09.
A Dillsburg native and a graduate of nearby Northern York H.S., Mowery graduated from Messiah in 2010 with a degree in health and exercise science.
