Some field hockey wins,
fund-raising for team
POMFRET — October for the Pomfret School varsity field hockey team means fund-raising to support local breast cancer patients and bring awareness to the school community.
This year they raised more than $2,000 to support the good work at Day Kimball Hospital and allow the team a denim and pink dress down day Oct. 1.
Then the team wore pink in its Oct. 2 game against Canterbury School.
The field hockey team is 2-4 overall and 2-3 in WNEPSFHA. Wins over Hopkins School (New Haven) and Marianapolis (Thompson) earlier this week got the team in the win column before a close 2-1 loss to Canterbury (New Milford) over the weekend.
Grace Long ’23 leads the team with five goals and one assist while co-captains Cate Gallagher ’22 and Emma McLean ’22 have three goals and one assist in the young season. Brooke Zahansky ’22 (Pomfret) has two goals and one assist with goalie Keira O’Brien ’25 (Stonington) recording two shutouts in her first season for the Griffins and first playing in the goal.
The team heads to Kingswood-Oxford Oct. 6 and hosts Ethel Walker Oct. 8 in league match-ups.
