Women’s National Team forward Hannah Haughn made Canadian field hockey history Tuesday when she stepped onto the field in California becoming the youngest Canadian woman on record to reach 100 senior international games played for Canada.
In their first match since the 2015 Pan American Games last summer, the Canadian women’s field hockey team took to the field in Chula Vista, California Monday afternoon, dropping an 8-1 decision to the United States.
When forward Nikki Woodcroft steps on to the field during the Canada-U.S. series this week, not only will it be her first time playing with the senior team, it will be the first time she dons the red-and-white on the same team as her older sister Amanda.
After the Women’s National Team won bronze at the 2015 Pan American Games in Toronto last July the program de-centralized, with the fall and winter on the horizon. But elsewhere, hockey season was in full swing.
