MRHS Has a New Women's Field Hockey Team!
Coach Brosse, what is your Field Hockey experience?
I played in high school and in college, and also coached a high school and a club team in Pennsylvania, focusing on skills that would help the girls get recruited for colleges.
What has impressed you most about your very first season?
Definitely the girls’ progress in such a short amount of time, as well as their enthusiasm and energy that they have put into making this program such a success.
What are your hopes for this field hockey season?
I want the girls to learn this new sport, in the hopes that they love it as much as I do. And I want them to become confident in their playing ability.
What’s something about the team that has impressed you in a positive way?
The girls have a dedication to each other that is not normally seen in so new a team. This dedication to each other has benefited the entire field hockey program.
How have your games gone so far this year?
For our inaugural season, our games have gone really well. We have shown great improvement from game to game, and I can honestly say that in a few years we are going to be the team to be reckoned with.
What is the best advice you could give your players?
Don’t do anything that you are not enjoying. Love what you do, and do what you love. Play every game like it is your last and don’t take any day for granted.
