Bill Iezzi: Washington Township Field Hockey

Washington Township field hockey coach Jeannine O'Connor had me feeling sorry for her team when we spoke during the preseason.

"We only have three returning; we're starting over," said O'Connor, now in her 17th season at the helm. "We used to have a middle school [feeder] program, but it was cut at the end of last year's school budget."

When I looked at the Washington Township field hockey results this morning, I saw that the Minutemaids have won their first three games by an aggregate score of 24-1.

No more pity parties, please.

Senior forward-midfielder Lindsey Hatch, senior midfielder-forward Erin Waller and junior midfielder-back Kaitlyn Gravert have had an electric effect on the rest of the team.
