Women's Hockey Ready for the Field

The women's field hockey team is gearing up for a successful season this fall. The returning team expects a large number of enthusiastic freshman this year to add energy and depth to the squad.

According to coach Cheryl Silva, the returning players came back in reasonably good shape and are already more mentally and physically prepared than last season. Susan D. Ward `92, a past Tech standout athlete in field hockey, basketball, and lacrosse, is helping the team in the position of assistant coach this year.

The Tech team has already established itself as a threatening opponent this season. In the MIT Play Day Tournament last Saturday, the team had two wins and one tie in scrimmages against Tufts and Bates and Babson Colleges.

The first official league game will be held away at Clark University this coming Saturday. Tech Field Hockey has a challenging season ahead, with a large number of key games away and on the grass, but they are well prepared to meet the challenge. In the upcoming months, expect to see MIT in contention for the 1992 New Eight Field Hockey title.
