The girls’ field hockey team started their season strong, and they look to continue their success as the season moves forward. Having already played a total ten games, the team has jumped out to an early 7-3 season (at the time of publication), and a win percentage of 70 percent. The team hopes to continue their large strides, and build on their Sept. 29 win against Fallbrook High School.
“Our team this year has really good chemistry. We know what each other are going to do and we will always be there for each other,” team captain and San Diego State University commit Isabelle Flud said.
With seven goals to her name already early on in the season, Flud looks to continue to lead her team towards greatness. The team chemistry is evident as the girls are undefeated at home. The team’s plays show that they are very comfortable with one another; and they understand each other’s playing style very well.
The team hopes to get a positive result in their upcoming games on Oct. 18 at Poway versus San Pasqual High School, and Nov. 2 against arch-rival Rancho Bernardo High School.
“We lost a lot of seniors and core players last year, but we still have very capable players this year and I’m sure we’ll perform well in the remainder of our season,” field hockey athlete Lauren Whitney said.
As for the coaching, the staff seems to be leading the program in the right direction, and it is evident that their tactics are having an impact on the players.
“Our coaches press us really hard in practices and in games so we can succeed both on and off the field,” Isabelle Flud said.
The Titans’ will surely be a force to be reckoned with as the season continues, and will command a high seed going into the playoffs if their recent play continues. Led by both Isabelle Flud, and junior Lauren Leland, the girls’ field hockey team will look to get a result in their upcoming game against Del Norte on Oct. 12.by
