Field Hockey - Varsity
Head Field Hockey Coach Wendy Morris said she could not be any prouder of the program’s growth and improvement since its inception.
“We started off with no JV program in our first year. We had 17 girls then. Now we have 37 girls, a full JV team and a vibrant middle school program,” said Morris, who is in her 7th season coaching.
Morris has played field hockey since she was 12 and went on to compete at Mt. Holyoke College. She was also recently named to the U.S. Masters World Cup Team.
Pennington plays in a difficult conference against some very strong field hockey foes, said Morris, which include the long-established Mercer County prep schools and statewide Prep B rivals.
“It’s exciting, and every year is different. I love to work with a great group of girls and share the same passion for field hockey,” she said.
Also a Latin teacher and head coach of both the Pennington lacrosse team and the U16 Futures Site for Central New Jersey, Morris said she measures success by each small victory. She recognizes that many accomplishments don’t often occur all at once, but instead in increments.
“Success is playing hard and getting better. If everyone plays with heart, I can’t ask for more.”
