Remember, being sore means progress. If you’re not sore, you’re not working hard enough
Can’t if I’m weirded out by all the 13 year olds getting “shipped” on the field hockey tag or glad that more youths are playing the sport…
definitely weirded out. also sick of seeing all the PLL stuff on the tag just because a fhockey stick was used as a weapon.
Good luck to everyone playing at the NIT this weekend!
Feel free to submit pictures to us!
What if I wrote a memoir about my field hockey experiences and called it “50 Shades of Grays”
I wish they’d bring back the TK sticks before these with the elephants. I love that look so much better and now I really want one.
Visit Eastern field hockey - ESPNHS Girl for information, in-depth analysis and discussion about Eastern field hockey
The Eastern High School field hockey team has essentially been the team of the millennium. Under the command of coach Danyle Heilig, the field hockey team has been dominating for years. It was 15 years ago when Coach Heilig took the reins, and since then she has never looked back because the girls of Eastern have put the school from South Jersey on the national map. They have won 15 consecutive group 4 state championships all while shattering numerous records in the process. This article by ESPN, published in December of 2011, displays the hard work and determination of the girls as they achieved greatness by claiming the top spot with their 13th consecutive state championship. Now in 2014, the streak stands at 15, and the girls show no signs of stopping. Eastern includes a long lineage of spectacular athletes. It is the former home to many athletes that have risen to prominence in the world of professional sports, and the talents that have been displayed by the girls of the field hockey team are representative of that. As a former student at Eastern, I am truly proud to have attended this school because the Vikings have exemplified athletic dominance throughout the years, and it continues to exist in the school’s current athletes. Go Vikings!
Field hockey on ESPN? That’s what I’m talking about.
Anonymous asked: During a match when the ball was aerialed and crushed my thumb against the stick, bruised and swollen and i still haven't got 100% movement. would you recommend going back to training this week? I just want to play ahah
I mean, I’m no athletic trainer but…
My junior year of high school i took a free hit right to the thumb (i’m not even 100% sure how it happened, and it hit me right on top, so it got the end of my nail and thumb) it swelled and bled and it sucked. SO I SYMPATHIZE. Seeing as your thumb doesn’t really move THAT much, I think you should be fine, especially if you want to play. Just make sure you ice it before / after practices. If it’s really that bad, just give your coach a heads up so they know you’re not slacking.
maybe wear gloves this week :) the marshmallow kind.
