Despite their record of twelve losses and two wins, Girls Field Hockey is continuing to practice hard and stay positive as the athletes work towards their final game of the season against Blair Academy. When asked to reflect on the season as a whole, the girls shared that they believe that their record does not reflect the growth and improvement that has occurred over the past few months.

Center defense player Brooke Dennison ’18 explained how instead of focusing on the negative aspects of losing, the team has instead used each loss as an opportunity to learn and get better.

“This season has been really tough for all of us,” Dennison said. “It’s definitely a growing year and a lot of things have changed, but we’re all just trying to use it as a learning experience and stay positive.”

Forward player Jessica Scopellite ’19 agreed that although the team has undergone a variety of changes, such as the loss of several senior players, the girls have managed to unite and continue making progress.

“Despite the loss of five of our seniors, we were able to regroup as a team, and our scores do not reflect that,” Scopellite ’19 said.

Throughout the season, the team has taken advantage of every game and has devoted time and energy to analyzing their strategies and developing new ones.

“I think that on the field sometimes, it can be frustrating when you’re losing, but we just try to stay positive as much as possible,” Aimee Wiencek ’18, center forward player, said.

Team dynamics have played an important role in the improvement and growth the girls have experienced this season. From team dinners to secret psych, the girls and coaches have taken every opportunity to bond and get to know each other better in an effort to make the team more like a family where every player feels at home.

“This is the closest team I’ve ever been a part of and I’m so grateful for the experiences I’ve shared with these girls,” midfielder Sophia McClellan ’19 added.
