New Year, New MAFH

The Varsity Field Hockey team is gearing up for a great season after an 8 – 8 record last season. Returning players started the season off by attending a field hockey camp at UMass Dartmouth while 12 new players were added during tryouts to replace the 11 seniors who graduated last June. In addition to team captains Juliet McCann (I) and Erika Lamere (I), the team will be led by Britney Carr, who enters her fourth season as head coach, and assistant coaches Amy Hickey and Caitlin Beresin.
The girls are committed to academics and athletics, but above all, they just want to have fun. Varsity players hold Friday night team dinners, dress up on game days, and come up with inspiring quotes before each game. Captain Juliet McCann sums it all up by saying, “One thing I expect every year is great team bonding and communication on and off the field. We’re a great group of girls with a ton of pride! The team chemistry this year will be just as strong as in years past. I expect to see a lot of growth in the players as people step up into new roles.”
Although last season was great, the team wants to improve on past records and hopes to continue to grow as a group. Milton Academy Field Hockey is looking forward to a successful 2014 season!
