Girls Soccer and Field Hockey Headed to NEPSAC Tournaments

palumboTwo Williston Northampton teams have qualified for post-season play, which begins on Wednesday.

Varsity field hockey (11-3-2) is seeded fourth in Class B and will host fifth-seeded Hopkins School. The game will be played at Galbraith Field at 2:15 p.m.

Field Hockey is carrying a six-game winning streak into the playoffs, and finished the regular season as the Class B Western New England Prep School Field Hockey Association (WNEPSFHA) Champions.  Positive momentum, and home field advantage, should serve them well for their opening-round game.

Some of the most memorable games this season include a 3-2 comeback win against Deerfield in overtime, a 3-1 win against Loomis Chaffee, and hard-fought 1-1 tie against Class A tournament #1 seed Hotchkiss.  Our Wildcats have a good deal of big-game experience, and this should serve the girls well as they begin their playoff campaign.

Coach Garrity is excited for the playoffs, “These girls have worked hard all fall and it’s great to see their efforts really paying off in the last weeks of the season.  I can’t wait to see what this team can do in the tournament.  With such a terrific group of senior leaders, anything is possible!”

Girls varwysockisity soccer (10-3-2) is seeded fifth and will head to face fourth-seeded Pingree School this Wednesday. Kick off is at 2:00 p.m.

The girls should be congratulated on a great regular season, during which they won the Class B Womens Western New England Prep School Soccer Association (WWNEPSSA) Championship.   Some of the most memorable games this season include the Friday night 3-0 win against Wilbraham & Monson under the lights, and a pair of 1-0 wins over powerhouses Westminster and Loomis Chaffee.  With three wins in their last four games, the girls are looking to carry their own momentum into the playoffs.

A positive and enthusiastic team spirit, fostered by coaches Jen Fulcher and Monique Conroy, has been an important factor in the team’s success this season, and the girls will have to harness that enthusiasm throughout the playoffs in order to overcome their opponents.

Williston wishes both teams the best of luck as they compete for silverware this week. For further information on all NEPSAC Tournaments go to the link below.
