Field Hockey Season

By Alana Modi

This year’s Field Hockey Season ended with another championship, making this a 3-peat for the team. Through a long season that started the second week of summer vacation, a true dedicated team was witnessed winning a championship that broke record books, with such a feat not having occurred in the history of the school. This victory not only caused a sense of pride to grow through the school, but personal achievements were unlocked for the players themselves who put their all out on the field that night. 

The one and only goal scored during the game took place in the third quarter, leaving the entire first half with a feeling of anticipation. The goal was scored during a penalty corner where the shot was taken by Catherine Neville, and was then tipped in by Alex Mega, leading to a goal that will forever be remembered. Aside from the action on the field, much was happening around with reporters from various different companies coming together to interview the champions at the end of the game 

This was certainly not a game that was handed to the players of EG, with Moses Brown’s players coming in with a drive and passion to win a title they had been lacking for years. The speed they brought confused the audience with the position of the ball continuously being transferred from one side to another, up and down the field. The game certainly brought entertainment along with it, with the majority of the movements witnessed being completely unexpected. The goalies of both teams also made the game harder, with incredible saves taking place, with ball clears that put the ball far away from the goal. There was not a moment of dullness, and both teams had a success that should not go unnoticed. 

Captains Alex Mega, Lola Balkolm, Hope Gee, and Maddie Kavanagh, had certainly brought the team closer throughout the season, and without their positive attitudes the team wouldn’t have had such a happy and successful ending. The seniors of this season will forever have a memorable ending to their high school and field hockey experiences.
