Abington Field Hockey Preview



Coach:  Amanda Deering, 4th year

Assistant coaches: Adele Kelly, Betina Roher, Barbara O’Neill and Lauren Konicky

Last year’s record:  5-9 (league); 7-11 (Overall)

Notable losses:  Elle Clark and Christina Geating

Key returners: Hanna Weckel (Sr, defense); Vika Guendelsberger (Sr, Defense); Caitlin Chapla (Sr, Defense), Dana Heller (Sr, Defense); Katherine Geating (Jr, Fwd); Faith Geating (Jr, Fwd)

Others to watch: Meredith Cox (Jr, Fwd)

Strengths/Question Marks:  “We lost two strong offensive contributors, Elle Clark and Christina Geating, to graduation. However, our defensive unit is returning to continue to build the Abington Ghosts’ program. I predict this year’s team play will be their biggest strength with several players stepping up to score goals.” 

Outlook:  “This year’s team wants to continue to become a contender in the National League. Last year, we upset Council Rock South and Neshaminy, but those wins were not enough to earn a .500 record. The Lady Ghosts would like to improve the team record for the third year in a row.”
