The Antioch Community High School varsity field hockey’s season ended in mid October as they lost in the first round of the playoffs. Overall, the girls had a great and productive season, ending the regular season with a record of 10-7-1. Even with a couple of players out with injuries, senior Brook Aldersbaes and junior Ashley Hare, the team managed to pull off a great season.

Varsity coach Terry Dewing said, “Considering that we had two major injuries to two good players, we did alright. We lost some games that we shouldn’t have lost, but overall we did alright.”

The team performed well this season, especially against some big teams like New Trier and Deerfield. One of their best games was against Deerfield resulting in a 6-0 win for Antioch. They also came up with a 2-1 win against  rival Lakes, beating them once and then tying 1-1  in the Stick it to Cancer game.

“I think we peaked too early in the season, then we plateaued, we started to pick it up again towards the end of season but by then we were too late,” said Dewing.

Even though the girls didn’t make it too far in the playoffs, throughout the season there were many different players that were able to step up to the occasion and perform at a high level.

“We had many players step up this season,” said Dewing. “Shannon Zogran was a big part of our season. Some other players that stepped up were Arlenne Lozano, and Carly McCameron.”

Even though the season did not end the way they wanted it to, the team had a successful year. The team shared many memorable moments, such as their tournament in St. Louis and playing in down town Chicago.

The girls hope to come back strong for next year’s season and to continue progressing.
