Speedy Damascus Field Hockey Looking to Succeed in 2015
"I had a great combination of skill and motivation with my team from last year," head coach Amanda Quay said. "I have a good amount of speed on the team this year. We are a combination of older experienced players and brand new athletes."
The team is anticipating having a solid midfield this year with seniors Michelle Thomas and Maddie Strokis expected to have big seasons. Damascus is hoping to employ a small and fast passing game, which will play into the team's speed advantage. The team is also hoping to work well as a team, and be aggressive in the circle throughout the season.
Damascus faces Springbrook in their opening game this season. It is expected to be a tricky contest since the two teams have not played each other in recent memory. Damascus will also have to contend with Blake this year, a team they are historically competitive with who is now in their section.
"We want to work as a team and motivate each other," said Quay. "Hustle and communication will be a must for every contest."
