Under sunny skies with temps reaching well-into the high 80s, Porter's JV Field Hockey team pressured Hopkins into a decisive win in the season opener for both teams. With a powerhouse defense lead by Christine Toldalagi '18, Natalie Brennan '20, and Jackie Witt '20, the field followed-suit in a three-two-three-two formation with relentless play by Syd Cheng '21, Ruby Eilser '21, Claire Golder '19, Julianne Borges Gordon '19, Priyanka Tomar '19, and Merritt Hall '19 jabbing, carrying, and lifting the ball along the lanes and over the grass centerfield. Goalie Georgie Harrison '18 and her dancing feet protected inside the 25, and our newcomers to the sport, Mary Emma de Compiegne '21, Lydia Woodworth '21, Sophie Schaeffer '21, and Bunny Rutledge '20 played with confident stick skills, intense speed, and fierce determination, powering through the Hopkins opposition. A big shout-out to our single scorer, Sarah Tsai '20, whose goal made today's game a win!
