Field hockey team finishes with strong win

Girls team was committed and motivated, coach Dickey

The Grade 8 and 9 girls field hockey team at AESS finished the season off strong, beating AD Rundle middle school 2-0. Goals were scored by Hannah Exley and Jaydin Lees. The team finished fifth in the league and was one spot off from making the playoffs.

“The team really improved every game. We were playing against teams that play all year round, which makes it difficult for our team to be competitive,” said coach Kyle Dickey. Girls that stood out on offense were Hannah Exley, Cameron Striker, and Jaydin Lees. They also had a strong defense consisting of Gina Isaac, Seleen Banez, and Chelsey Baboth (all in Grade 8).

Highlights of the season were the two goals scored against AD Rundle, tying GW Graham in their home tournament, and Hannah Exley’s celebration when we got our first short corner of the year.

“The girls were a pleasure to coach and always worked hard in practices and games. It’s great to have a team of 18 players who are committed and motivated,” said Dickey. The team is looking for a new coach for next year.
