Field Hockey

By Cece Dye

This past weekend, Ladies field hockey traveled to Maryland to compete in the Frostburg State University Tournament. The Ladies won one and lost one against Transylvania University from Lexington, Ky. and Washington College, from Chestertown, Md.

The Ladies lost 4-1 on Saturday to Washington’s Shorewomen. On Sunday, they beat the Transylvania Pioneers 5-0 with support from a dependable midfield.

Goalkeeper Sarah Speroff ’18 was able to hold off the Pioneers for most of the game on Sunday. Speroff saw from the goal cage that the team was giving their all. “[They] worked a lot better as a whole unit,” she said.

Rachel Hall ’15 scored two of the five goals, the rest of which came from Sam Johnston ’15, Hannah Drake ’16 and Maddie Breschi ’16. The team experienced a strong turnaround, working cohesively after their loss. “Communication was really lacking in Saturday’s game, but that triggered an intensity for Sunday’s game,” Hall said. “We really wanted it, and showed that on the field, as the score shows.”

Head Coach Jacque DeMarco found the tournament to be a great learning experience. “We played great midfield all weekend, and are really growing as a team,” DeMarco said. “We’re starting to understand the space a lot more, our newcomers are starting to feel more comfortable and new leadership is popping out.”
