Recent Alum at UVA

29 Sep 2015 by admin, No Comments »

Newport Harbor Field Hockey Alum, Jordan Blanchfield (Class of 2015), checked in with us about her experience with club field hockey so far at the University of Virginia:

“I am having an awesome experience with club field hockey so far! I am so happy with the level of play and commitment expected on the team because it’s been a perfect balance with school. We practice late at night, three times a week and our games/tournaments are on weekends. The club is run entirely by students so there aren’t any coaches or faculty involved, but there is an “executive board” who is just made up of older girls that are mostly in charge. Club sports are definitely popular here. It’s such a big school that there are always people who want to keep playing their sport at a competitive level, so it’s fun to have a community of club sport athletes. I’ve met so many older girls that are awesome resources and super welcoming and helpful with anything at UVA so it makes being part of a team that much better!! I am so happy that I am still playing field hockey and I do also miss Newport Harbor Field Hockey a ton!! Go Newport!”

We wish Jordan all the best at UVA and are so proud of her accomplishments already. Jordan’s team is undefeated and she has already scored three goals and has two assists.
