College Preparatory School for Girls Grades 3-12

JV Field Hockey


The JV Field Hockey team had a great season this year with many new faces and a strong group of returners. The team was led by captains Jenna Mohi-ud-din ‘20 and Renata Taylor-Smith ‘20. Throughout the season the girls continued to develop their fundamentals and team strategy each game. The team came into their own and individuals began to find their rhythm and place on the field.

While the team record does not indicate the success of the group overall, the girls came back and dominated in the end-of-season play day at Madeira and were able to defeat three teams that we either lost or tied to in the regular season. With an exciting end to the day, they tied the Saints and redeemed themselves from a previous 0-4 regular season game. Both goalies, Sammy London ‘21 and Asma Poshni ‘ 21 had shutouts that day and came up with key saves for the team.

We look forward to another strong season next year and can’t wait to see how this great group of girls continues to develop!
