Wednesday, October 27, 2010, 12:34 PM
Sometimes when I watch a field hockey game, one particular player will stand out. Usually, it's not a freshman. However, on Tuesday afternoon at Camden Catholic, the home team's Tara Vittese stood out like a spot light. At forward she was able to dribble around and occasionally through would-be Haddonfield...

The action was non-stop, head-over-heals for Eastern and Shawnee Thursday in a driving rain storm as the No. 1 and No. 2 field hockey teams in South Jersey clashed. Eastern won, 4-0, but throughout the battle there was no quit in the Renegades. And that made the game exciting to the end. The shutout... Read more

I was doing the field hockey rankings this morning when I noticed that Haddonfield had lost two of its last three games.

Early in the field hockey season I had Ocean City ranked in the Top 10. Then, I relegated the Red Raiders to the "Under consideration" category because they weren't playing against ranked teams. That changed on Saturday when Ocean City beat Haddonfield, ranked No. 6 by The Inquirer, 4-3... Read more
