Field hockey maintains undefeated record in league

By Alex Leichenger

Undefeated in league play and 7-1-1 overall, the girls’ field hockey team has surrendered only three goals the entire season.

The Wolverines notched a 10-0 Homecoming win over Chaminade.

“For a group of primarily first year varsity players we have really banded together as a team and developed as a whole, which has led to a lot of success,” goalie Adrianna Crovo ’11 said.

Head Coach Erin Creznic echoed that sentiment.

“I think a lot of people, [including] members of our team, thought this might be a rebuilding year after losing so many talented seniors in last year’s class,” Creznic said. “But our current seniors are an amazing group on and off the field and for many years, they have been the quiet, unsung heroes who just get the job done.”

The team’s lone blemish so far came in a 1-0 loss at Huntington Beach.

“Our . . . loss at Huntington was a very tight game,” Creznic said. “However, we allowed the grass to slow down our game, and we took too long to adjust to the field conditions and the way in which Huntington plays as a team.”

“We are a team founded on athleticism and talent, which makes it easy for us to make adjustments during the games that play up our strengths while exposing our opponents’ weaknesses,” Crovo said.

The team will play their next league match against Bonita Oct. 16.
