CHS field hockey has been practicing hard and is geared up for the season.

According to County Sports Zone, last year the team finished 8-4-1, placing second in their division. The team hopes to build on the success from last year, as a lot of players are returning.

“A significant portion of this year’s team remembers both our successes and our shortcomings from last season, and they are motivated to build on their experiences,” head coach Cay Miller said.

This year’s team has set high goals for the season after getting eliminated in the first round of the playoffs last year.

Losing first round in playoffs last year was disappointing, but I believe we have what it takes to go further into playoffs than we have gone before,” junior captain Faith Kean said.

The team is on track to reach their goals starting the season 5-0, as of 9/25. Their start includes a 2-0 win over Springbrook, who defeated them last year in the regular season.

The team also changed aspects of what they do off the field by setting standards to be able to reach their goals.

“We have had more team meetings and discussions this year about the type of team we want to be,” Miller said.

This year’s team has come together a lot more than years in the past.

“I think there is more team cohesion this year, everyone motivates and encourages each other,” Kean said.
