Field Hockey Background

I was introduced to the game through a friend on my soccer team when I was young. Hockey was played in the spring. The only other sport offered during this season was baseball which was too slow. So I stuck with field hockey.

Coaches: Robin D'Abreo, Alan Brahmst, Louis Mendonca, Gene Muller
