The HHS field hockey team has dominated this season. They have trampled the competition, earning 10 wins and only suffering one loss and four ties. With their Oct. 17 win against Silver Lake, they captured the Patriot League Fisher Division championship.
Coach Judy Schneider attributes their success to teamwork, not to mention incredible goalies Hannah McCorkell and Molly Cameron.
“The team is very coachable,” said Coach Schneider. “Everyone on the team has improved so much.”
Their one and only defeat was against Duxbury in a home game under the lights. After keeping up with them for the first half of the game, Hanover gave up two goals in the second half.
“We played really good in the first half,” said Brielle Prouty, a junior. “It was one of our best games as a team.”
“Duxbury has always been a powerhouse,” added junior Erika Nelson.
Senior captain McCorkell said even though the team lost to Duxbury, there were a lot of positives.
“It was our toughest game so far,” she said. “We did a good job keeping up with them and showing them that we could be competitive and not a joke.”
The team expects to make a strong showing in the playoffs.
“It’s been a really good season” said Cate Marchetti, a junior. “The team’s been working really well together.”
