West Long Branch:The Shore Regional Field Hockey team took the field to kick off the season in the annual alumni game. Former members of the past teams came back to the school grounds to participate in the annual event. Coach Nancy Williams arranges the day, date, and time of the event and extends the invitation to all former players in the area to come out for one last chance to run, pass, and shoot on one another.
Approximately 40 women attended the annual event. They played two abbreviated halves in front of family, friends, current players and future alumni. Although the game was being played for fun, most of the women playing showed their competitive spirit as they ran, passed, set each up other for the next big goal.
This event proves that Shore Regional Field Hockey is a lifelong commitment. As anyone in attendance could tell you, this event marks the start of what Coach Williams and others both hope and expect will be a winning seasons.
