Field Hockey Preview
by The Milton Measure on Friday, September 16th, 2011
The Milton Academy Field Hockey team is back and looking better than ever. MAFH won their scrimmage 2-1 against St. Marks on Saturday. Erin Martin (I) scored both goals, saying afterwards that “the season is off to a great start!”
The squad has a new coach this season. Assistant athletic director Britney Carr has taken over the program, and after the challenging preseason, the results seem promising. Ali Gendron (II) is confident that “this will be a winning season for MAFH- the most successful yet.”
Many new comers have joined the squad this year. The talented young crew includes sophomores Cameron Park (III), Emily Bland (III), Maura Noone (III) and Jessica Levey (III).
After their experience on the undefeated freshman team last year, the girls are ready to bring success to the varsity program. Juniors, Delaney Flynn (II) and Margaret Draper (II) were incredible additions as well as Sarah Fishman (I), Tori Muse (I), and Elly Day (I).
Returners include Captains Erin Martin (I) and Meghan Kelleher (I) in midfield positions. Returning forwards Brighid Noone (I), Melissa Ambrus (I), Ale Gianino (II), Gendron, and Mackenzie O’Neil (I) hope to bring the team many points and victories.
The unbeatable returning defensive line includes Amy Chappel (I), Meg Broderick (I), and Catherine Parker (I). In goal, Sarah Evans (I) and Sophie Janeway (I) are on top of their game and ready for a great season!
