Field Hockey Falls to Pike

The field hockey team had its best showing of the fall season against Pike this week. The game was much closer than the 3-1 final indicted, and head coach Abbey Nyland was happy with the way her team performed. Eighth grader Michelle Mejia-Levy netted the lone goal for the Blue & Gold who took a 1-1 tie into the half before surrendering two scores in the second frame. Co-captain Lynn Lewis was terrific at midfield, while classmate Maya Gregor had a strong game on defense. The team will face another tough test next week when they travel to Nashoba Brooks.
