Field Hockey Continues to Battle

The field hockey team ran up against a talented Charles River squad this week, losing 4-0 in their final home game of the season. The loss dropped the Blue & Gold’s record to 2-5 on the season. Their record, however, isn’t an indication of the success the team has enjoyed this season. Each and every game the team has fought hard, competed with class, and supported each other on the field. For an example of this supportive environment, one needs to look no further than sixth grade newcomer Kenna Schneider. Despite what was thought to be a season-ending injury, Schneider decided to remain with her team. She's encouraged her teammates, helped her coaches, and remained positive throughout the entire season. As it turns out, Schneider’s commitment has paid off and she was cleared to join her teammates on the field this week.
