After ending the 2017 season with only 3 wins, McMahon field hockey is “all in” this year.
The girls and their coaches are determined to make this season one to remember. Even with three hour practices consisting of lifting, running, and weight room sessions, the field hockey team still manages to make time for team bonding.
Senior captain Julia Curtin says, “I think we have better leadership and a stronger bond as a team. We communicate a lot more about what we do well and what we don’t between the players and the coaches.” Curtin went on to say, “We are honest with each other when we play poorly or have a bad practice and strive to change that.”
More than halfway through the season, the girls have won as many games as they did last year, and tied two.
With Greenwich and St. Joseph’s in their future, the bright eyed team is putting in just as much effort off the field as they are on.
“There was a lot of distance between everyone last year” notes Curtin. “This year we made sure to decorate lockers and give everyone sisters so we can be more like a family.”
In her third year as head coach, Dani Brown makes sure to stick to her motto, “all in.” After their recent win over Trumbull, making their record 4-9-2, the field hockey team remains driven for their upcoming games.
