Field Hockey Loses Fight in District, County Play

By Matthew Schwanke, Reporter

The Lady Warriors finished their season with an 11-7 record, including one win against Dallastown. 

They lost in the first round of districts against Central and in the first round of counties against Manheim Central. 

This team seemed to have a strong connection this year which was a big reason for the Lady Warriors in getting to postseason play.

Senior Lauryn Wojcik appreciated the team’s connection.

“We had a bond on and off the field. We had a bond that made it easier to play together,” said Wojcik.

Fellow captain senior Caroline Folfas agreed with that connection.

“We gave it our all each time we stepped on the field,” Folfas said.

It helped them in many games like the win against Dallastown. 

 Freshman Nicole Dauberman  also considered this a signature win.

“It was the first time we beat them in 40 years,” said Dauberman. 

The season did not go perfectly as the team had some tough losses. 

“Southwest. We fought hard. It was a really hard game, and we played our hearts out,” said Wojcik.

Wojick explained which game was the hardest and most fought for. 

The Lady Warriors overall win-loss record was 11-7, with two postseason games.

One of the biggest challenges in accomplishing this so much this season was having a younger team according to Wojcick. 

Improvements that the team tried to accomplish before the start of the regular season were many; however, both Wojcik and Dauberman felt the team was more experienced.

 Dauberman said, “We all have a better skill level because we all played (club); we have that previous knowledge.”

This was the first time in two years that the team had made it to a district game. Folfas was grateful for the chance to play in districts.

“It was really nice to at least have a shot at going father into postseason,” said Folfas.

The Lady Warriors hope to build on their success from this year and bring that winning mentality into next season.
