This was the first season Field Hockey was included in the North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) as a competitive sport and Coach Shelly Novak and the Wilson College Women’s Field Hockey team did not disappoint.
Despite a couple losses along the way, the team managed to win the conference championship and host the post season championship game as well. While maintaining an overall record of 8 wins 8 losses, they made history while going undefeated in the conference.
This past weekend the Wilson Field hockey team hosted Wells College for the post season championship. Seeing that they played and defeated Wells College during the regular season, Wilson aimed to do the same again but fell short as the game progressed. What was a battle to the end concluded in Wells favor 0 to 1. In spite of losing the post season championship, Wilson had four athletes named to the All-Conference First Team: Lauren Moss ‘19, Kari Lehman ‘18, and Annie Demmy ‘18, and Megan Sterling ‘17. They were the best players in the conference based on their performance throughout the season.
Special congratulations to Coach Shelly Novak on being named Coach of the Year.
