Community and Sisterhood power Weston Field Hockey

The accepting community and sense of sisterhood is certainly what makes Weston Field Hockey’s team special and a recent win speaks to that truth.

Despite a 2-1 loss in overtime against New Fairfield on 9/29, the team’s spirit and determination remained strong. Less than a week later on Monday 10/4, Weston went head-to-head with New Milford, a team who previously beat them 3-0. Not letting the previous loss to the Green Wave dampen their spirits, the Trojans pulled out their first win since 2019 with a final score of 2-0. 

 Senior Leo Phillips is encouraged. “This season is the best I’ve ever felt in terms of both my abilities and my view of the team.” 

It is the team dynamics and the girls commitment to each other that is resonating on the field. Senior Isabel Kusek, a new addition to the Weston Field Hockey program says, “My favorite part of field hockey is definitely practicing with the team. The team has such a tight bond and the girls are great.”

With this positive attitude and sense of community, Weston foresees a successful future for the determined athletes. Phillips says, “In terms of the rest of the season, I’m just hoping to keep playing at the level we have been […] I feel confident in saying that we look completely different out on the field.” 

Win or lose, these girls have a true fascination for the sport. For most Weston students, an organized Field hockey team is only available starting at the beginning of high school, giving them only four years to experience the true essence of Field Hockey. Avery Bilfield is a new player and says field hockey is “an interesting and relatively new game that is really up and coming.”

Using this newfound intensity on the field fans will just have to wait and see what the Weston Field Hockey team has in store for the rest of the season. Only time will tell what the future holds for the Weston Field Hockey team. Go support the girls against Newtown High School on Wednesday 10/6 at the lower turf!
