Class of 2018 Dock Mennonite Academy Souderton Strikers Defense
College Commitment: University of New Haven NCAA Division II committed 01/19/18
Intended major: Marine Biology
On choosing New Haven: “I chose this university because they have a really good marine biology program for me to continue my academics. For field hockey, I really liked the facilities and the services that I would have access to. I am excited to help build up this new team and continue my field hockey career. Coach Lykens and her coaching style is right up my alley so it made it easier for me to make my decision. It is a very good fit for me academically and athletically.”
Field hockey honors: My senior year I was voted captain by my team and we made it to playoffs. I was awarded 1st Team BAL, Senior BAL All-Star, PhilaFH Senior All-Star, All-State nominee, Team MVP, BAL Academic Squad, PSFHCA All-Academic, All-Intelligencer Honorable Mention and NFHCA All-Academic
Other sports: Along with field hockey, I grew up playing softball.
Other honors: I was captain of the softball team my junior year and senior year. Last season we won districts and I was awarded Honorable Mention for our league and the Intelligencer.
Best field hockey moment: “My best field hockey moment is playing Oley Valley my junior year. It was one of my best-played games along with my team. We all played our hearts out because we had nothing to lose.”
Field hockey goals: “My goal right now is to work hard to have a quick and healthy recovery from my ACL tear and be able to play my freshman year at New Haven.”
Boyle’s shout-out: “I would like to thank parents for always being on my side and making everything possible, my family and friends for coming to games and supporting me and my coaches for pushing me to be a better player and helping me get to where I am now!”
