Wilson’s Field Hockey team looks forward to an exciting year. This year’s team of eighteen players brings a variety of talents to the field, with some veterans, as well as freshmen who have never stepped onto the field before coming to Wilson.

Hopes for a strong team

Senior player Jami DeVanie ‘12 said, “Our team is so strong this year. We are there. We have the talent, speed and mind and the heart of champions. One heart, one more and all in.’’

Season starts with rough patch

The team is determined to have another winning season like they did last year. They hit a rough patch in their first game against Shenandoah University on Sept. 1, when they lost with a final score of 2-4. The loss drove the team to work harder and want to win even more.

Field Hockey rebounds

Field Hockey did just that, coming out hard in their next game on Sept. 10, a tournament game versus Wells College. They won 2-0, and went on to win the tournament championship game on Sept. 11 against Neumann University with a score of 2-1. They won their two other games this season, the highlight being their 5-0 win against Cedar Crest College.

Nine games remain in the field hockey season. The next home game is on Oct. 13 at 4:00pm. They will play against St. Vincent College.
