The AHS varsity field hockey team defeated Mount Vernon on Monday, Oct. 2nd.

The Atoms shut out the Majors by a score of 2-0 in the senior night game.
“Everyone played great,” coach Cindy Hook said. “We played very well as a team and our passing during the game was quite good.”
The two goals played a huge part in the victory. The first goal was scored by senior Katie Pope and the second was scored by junior Lindsey Keyes both during the first half.

In the entirety of the game, the girls radiated with team work and communication. In addition, the team also dominated the game both offensively and defensively.

“The defense was rock solid in the second half,” Hook said “Especially since our senior goalie, Sarah Hawkins, made numerous unbelievable saves. She’s our starting goalie and she just had an amazing game, with point plank, quick saves that left them scoreless.”

The victory during the game was great, and the celebration of the seniors went well too.

“The underclassman did a great job decorating the locker room and the field and making it a special night for the seniors,” Hook said. “It was a great night even before the game and then the win just made it that much better.”
This year’s seniors on the team are Sarah Hawkins, Ankita Bhurtel, Rebecca Tecle, Katie Pope and Kenzie Gardener.

Each senior was announced and cheered on and walked through a tunnel of field hockey sticks with their families.

“Everyone stayed after school and worked hard to decorate and set up everything for the seniors,” freshman Lillian Dalrymple said.

This game was a very important win psychologically as the team are leading up to the District Tournament.

Going into any tournament with multiple wins gives the team a confidence boost.

The girls hope to keep their winning record through season and win districts.

The last couple of games are very crucial in determining the results for field hockey this year.
