“I’m looking forward to finishing my senior year with this great group of girls and hopefully getting a few more wins,” senior Natalie Vaché said.

”I’m looking forward to having fun with my team for the rest of this season and get even closer with them,” junior Olivia Williams said.

Coach Intel:

“Regardless of the outcomes so far, the players have had a great attitude of wanting to learn and get better from where they are at in this moment and they always have a smile on their face,” Conroy said. “I played field hockey when I went to Lafayette. The field hockey team was one of my fondest memories of high school at Lafayette and I had the opportunity to continue playing at the University of Iowa where I brought the positive atmosphere of Lafayette Field Hockey to college.”
