A Note from Grupe

Newport Harbor Field Hockey’s recent graduate, Lauren Grupe, sent us a note about her time so far at University of the Pacific.

“Hello! Just wanted to give a shout out to all my Sailor field hockey girls! Congratulations on your recent win! Keep up the great work! UOP has been an incredible experience so far. The field hockey team has become my family. We are together pretty much all the time and I love everyone. Whether we are having a team dinner or simply just practicing, we are always bonding and having the best time. College hockey is very time consuming and tons of hard work but its worth it because I love the sport. Playing Division I field hockey has been a great opportunity, and I strongly recommend playing at the college level to anyone who has a true passion for the sport. Good luck with your season and I wish the best to all of you!”
Thanks Lauren, we wish the best to you and are so glad to hear about how well your season is going!

Play Day Times

This Saturday JV & Frosh/Soph will be participating in the Westminster High School Field Hockey Play Day. JV will be playing in the Varsity bracket and Frosh/Soph will be participating in the JV bracket. Some Varsity players will be present as they help officiate throughout the day. Games are 25 minutes in length with no breaks. The time is kept at a central location for all of the fields and dictated by an air horn. Teams have five minutes to get on and off of the field.

Players need to bring both color uniforms and socks. We will bring our new EZ-ups to provide shade and a resting place for the teams. The girls generally bring snacks to munch on throughout the day as they wait in-between games. Good luck girls!

Squiggling the Field

As you may have noticed yesterday, the field needs to be re-lined. Amanda has come to the conclusion that she is not gifted in the way of spray painting a straight line. SO, we need some volunteers who would be willing to help Jeff Chandler out with the measuring tape and diagram sometime in the next week. Please contact Jeff Chandler at JChandler@lymtech.com.
