Field Hockey week of August 31

Hi Field Hockey Players & Parents,

Congratulations to JV for placing 5th out of 16 teams this past weekend as well as their win on Friday!  Coach Burr (who helped us out this past weekend) and I were very proud of the girls and we both agreed that our speed, aggression towards the goal, and skill improved throughout the day.  This will be a huge advantage to us this season.  The girls have grown so much already in the past three weeks and Coach Morgan and I are excited to see it continue!

Varsity tied 0-0 but it was a great chance to see where we are at and what we need to work on before the upcoming tournament.  There is so much potential with this team and we truly feel that we can compete with the top teams in the county as long as we continue our work ethic!     ~Coach Britt

Field Hockey week of August 17

We were very pleased with the girls' hard work this past week and we look forward to watching them continue that effort and grow this season.  The next few weeks will be extremely hot so please make sure the players are hydrating at home and not relying on water breaks at practice.  We are committed to having fit players who are able to compete for the entire 50 minute game. We will go over our goals for the season in detail at the parent meeting.  Congratulations again to each of the players and we look forward to meeting you Thursday evening.  ~Coach Morgan & Coach Britt
