The girls varsity field hockey team capped another successful season this year, again ending with a winning record. The team, despite graduating many seniors last year and having many new players, were able to put up another great season. Head Coach Mrs. Duncan states, “we graduated about 10 players, so given that half the team graduated, including goalies, I’m very proud of our efforts and our wins this year.” Captain Meara Burns ’19 also said, “I think it went well considering we lost a lot of talented kids. A lot of kids stepped up into important roles.”

The girls added two new teams to their schedule this year, Sacred Heart and Greenwich Academy, two of the best teams in New England. Despite the difficult scheduling, they never wavered in spirit and again met the high standard that varsity field hockey holds.

The team had a few thrillers this year. Some notable games were their overtime win against Westminster, Ethel Walker, and Choate. Coach Duncan described their win against Ethel Walker as “a wild one. The score was 7-4 and they are really good.”

Team captains Julia Nearis ’19, Maddie Blakeslee ’19, and Meara Burns ’19 have led the team on and off the field. Coach Duncan stated “Julia Nearis is the captain, she leads the team in goals and assists. She’s been terrific, she’s an offensive spark. She demands a lot from her teammates, and she’s hardest on her friends.”

One of the struggles that the team dealt with was the middle of the season plague that hit Kent School. A combined outbreak of injuries, sickness, and hand-foot-mouth disease handicapped the team. Coach Duncan said, “honestly the biggest struggle was so many new people and our fair share of injuries and illnesses.” Despite the temporary loss of players, Burns says, “everyone had to play important roles, including our goalie.”

Despite not capturing a Founders League title, the team had a great season. Burns states, “I am going to miss the kids and the coaches” and that “the whole season was memorable.”
