Nine area field hockey players recognized by Maine Field Hockey Association

Tue, 11/19/2019 - 11:45am

The Maine Field Hockey Association has announced this year’s all-state and all-academic accolade recipients. 

The all-state selections will be recognized at the annual awards banquet on Sunday, Dec. 8 at the Augusta Civic Center at 1 p.m. Players recognized for academic all-state will be recognized with a certificate, not at the banquet. 

Three area Waldo County players earned all-state accolades: Hannah Banks (Belfast; Class B), Brooke Richards (Belfast; Class B) and Sophia King (Mount View; Class C). 

Each varsity coach is able to nominate up to three players from their own team for all-state selection. The nominees are then voted on by all varsity coaches in the state. Each coach may vote for up to 11 players, not including their own.

To qualify for all-state selections, players must perform consistent at a high skill level, possess leadership on and off the field, exhibit excellent sportsmanship and be dedicated to field hockey. 

Seven area players spanning four schools earned all-academic accolades: Banks, Greta Bishop (Camden Hills), Sophia Campbell (Camden Hills), Meredith Luce (Camden Hills), Annika Reinwand (Camden Hills), Thurston Illingworth (Mount View) and Audrey Young (Oceanside).
