Middletown North Lady Lions Field Hockey Look to Heat Up


Lion's Roar Staff, Writer

The Middletown High School North Varsity Field Hockey team is looking to have a successful campaign under Head Coach Carley Hawkins.  The Lions roster features six seniors to serve as the example for the underclassmen and will be depended on for their leadership and experience.  Seniors Lillian Albanese (2 goals), Gabby Carton, Victoria LaMalfa, Christina Dowd, Krista Houck(1 goal, 1 assist) and Cassidy Morris(3 goals) will look to set the tone for the Lions as they head down the stretch of their season.  

The field hockey program will have some young talented players returning this season including sophomore Ava Sigrist.  Sigrist who is an athletic talent, was voted among the top 75 freshman girls lacrosse players by www.NJ.com during the 2021 spring lacrosse season. Sigrist posted 11 goals and 6 assists and her athleticism will be depended on to continue make an impact during the course of the field hockey season. The Lions have also seen contributions from freshman Isabelle Bracchi who has two assists on the season and sophomore Gabby Welton who has an assist also.

The Lions are off to a 1-4 start with an opening day 4-0 victory versus Long Branch.  The Lions have been in some close games, but unfortunately were unable to come away with victories versus Middletown South, Toms River South, Howell and Holmdel. The Lions ended Friday’s game with Manalapan in a 0-0 tie and will look to get back on track on Tuesday September 21, 2021 when they travel to Manalapan to take on the Braves.
