NHHS Hall of Fame: NHFH Coach

The 3rd Annual Newport Harbor Hall of Fame Ceremony was held on June 1st in the Robert B. Wentz Theater. Newport Harbor Field Hockey was happy to especially support one of this year’s Faculty inductees, Ellen Caricof. Ellen was the first field hockey coach for the Newport Harbor Field Hockey program in 1973.

Newport Harbor Field Hockey Alum and Current Players with Mrs. Caricof:
Nancy Rohan, Kathy Hancock, Peyton Groves, Jackie Singer, Ellen Caricof, Emily Vaughan, Sarah Sheldon, and Amanda Boyer

Ellen Caricof taught physical education from 1950-1988. She was the first Administrator of the Girls Atheltic Association, which was the girls’ sports league before female students were allowed to compete in CIF. In 1972, Title IX legislation mandated that girls’ sports offer the same opportunities as boys’ sports, and Caricof was instrumental in helping NHHS make the transition to the CIF league and regulations. She established new girls’ teams which opened doors for the next generations of femal athletes, and coached the first Field Hockey team. NHHS honors Ellen Caricof for a lifetime of bringing joy, skill, and determination to young women in the gym and on the field. She inspired her players to commit to self-improvement and to value the team as a whole.
