Wednesday’s home opener for the girls field hockey team could not have been finer after defeating Grafton 7-1. The Rockets dominated out of the gate and only allowed one score against them.
Led by Captains Jess Clifford, Shannon Hynes and Abby Lucas, this Auburn team is already showing their experience on the field after two straight State Championship finals. The current varsity roster has 8 seniors, 5 juniors and 1 sophomore.
As with last fall’s team, they have lost some important players who graduated, but it is pleasing how well the team adapts. More girls will get more playing time and they will prove themselves.
Have a great season!
