Field Hockey Senior Night

Field Hockey celebrates not only their senior night but also promotes breast cancer awareness.

Wednesday, October 19th, was the field hockey team’s senior night – a night honoring the highly valued senior players on the team. Senior Night is typically the last home game of the season, i.e. the last time the team’s seniors will play at home, representing the knights in their purple and white uniforms. Before the game, a small ceremony was held on behalf of the seniors, and their parents, where senior gifts are given, and family members are allowed onto the field to stand with their athlete.

The four seniors honored that night were Jennifer Lefebvre, Maya Birks, Sarah Healy, and Sara Morin.

“I’m so excited for senior night, but I know it’s going to be bittersweet…” said Varsity Field Hockey captain Sarah Healy, before the event. “I’ve spent a lot of time with my teammates over the past few years and it’s scary to think that it will be over soon… but I’m grateful for my teammates and so proud of the them for the effort they’ve put in over the years or even months.”

This year, not only did the team celebrate the hard work and dedication of the seniors, but the team raised money and awareness for breast cancer, being that October is breast cancer awareness month. The team sported pink warm up shirts, payed for by the team’s booster club.

“I really enjoy being able to do what I love while raising awareness for such a worthy cause,” said varsity field hockey captain and staff member Katie Keane ’18.

The game was be held at Robert’s Field Sports Complex, in Holyoke, MA, starting at 6:00 PM against Turners Falls. Holyoke won 5-2.
