The Newtonite

Field hockey, 7-7-2, won the Carey Division of the Bay State Conference before losing to Chelmsford in the first round of the State Tournament.
“One highlight of the season was beating Brookline on the road. The passing downfield was unbelievable, and we came together,” said senior Alison Berkowitz, a captain with senior Danielle Wasson and junior Stephanie Vitone.
Berkowitz added, “The highlight of the season was our senior day win against Needham. The weather was horrible, but we played through it and beat them.” The Tigers won 6-0.
According to coach Celeste Myers, the captains led the team in a “hard fought season.” Myers said she was proud of her players for going as far as they did.
Berkowitz and junior Bridget Gillis were Bay State Conference all-stars.
Next year’s captains will be Gillis and sophomore Lizzie Reid.
