Bill Iezzi: Holy Cross Field Hockey Friends

At Rancocas Valley Tuesday, Holy Cross coach Hillary Richards told me that she played left forward at the parochial school for Julie Thornton in 2003.

Thornton, who is an RV co-coach with Jean Marie Seal, said she didn't forget how good a player Richards was. So before she left the Holy Cross program two years ago she called her former star and told her about the coaching opening.

Richards guided the Lancers to a 2-0 BCL interdivisional win.    

"This game didn't mean anything in the division, but it meant everything mentally for the team ... to be challenged by a good team," Richards said. "It helped physically and mentally for postseason."
