Field Hockey

Hi Everyone,


Of course, we are all disappointed with our season ending game last night, but our game against a very talented New Canaan team was a tough fought battle. Not once did we stop fighting against a challenging opponent who had 16 seniors on their roster! The field hockey in that area of the state is really amazing and our team from Avon played with a lot of heart, hustle, class, and teamwork.


The coaches are proud of each player on the team. We have spent the last 10 weeks working together learning and growing. From day 1 each player came with a positive attitude ready to learn, work hard and be better each day! We wish to thank all of the players for their hard work and dedication! Keep the momentum going and stay disciplined, stay in shape, and keep your grades going strong!


We will celebrate our season on December 5th. Please RSVP to Friends of Field Hockey. We are looking forward to a great banquet.


THIS FRIDAY (11/10), WE ARE HAVING A FINAL TEAM MEETING AND UNIFORM RETURN RIGHT AFTER SCHOOL. Please make sure to bring both jerseys and your skirt. We will be meeting right outside Mr. Filon’s office. The coaches would like to meet with each player for a few minutes, so we will most likely be going until 4pm. All uniforms must be turned in on Friday, so please plan to attend. Anything lost or ruined will be charged to you by the Athletic Office. YOUR UNIFORM DOES NOT NEED TO BE RETURNED CLEAN. There is a company that does that.


Lastly, a HUGE THANK YOU to the parents and fans for all your support this past season. It made a big difference for our team!!


Best wishes for a nice Thanksgiving to all and we’ll see the players this Friday!


Thank you,

Coach Z
