Mechanicsburg Area Senior High School - I worked hard to earn a varsity starting position during my freshman season (2019). I have been playing field hockey since I was eight years old. At that time, I also began playing soccer and played both sports for the next five years. After middle school, I chose to focus on my first love, field hockey. I am hardworking both on and off the field. During my freshman year, I took all Level 1 courses and maintained an A average. Every time I take my first step on the field, I put 100% into the game. I learn from my mistakes and I see them as stepping stones to better myself at the game. I love my teammates and it is amazing knowing that I can rely on them on and off the field. I am currently undecided about my major, but hope to make an impact on my future college's field hockey team. See my full profile at https://sites.google.com/view/sydneyaylward-classof2023/home

I bring an energetic, encouraging, and competitive aspect to the game.

Mikenna JorichCentral Dauphin Senior High School
- Unlike many of my other teammates, I did not find my passion and love for field hockey until the start of my adolescence. I struggled to find where I belong, though once I found field hockey, I found myself and continued to pursue and grow the sport, thus growing myself. While being a hard worker on the field and constantly striving to be my best, I am twice as focused on my academics, which continually come first in any situation. During my freshman year, I took all sophomore and advanced courses and held an A average (and I am doing the same my sophomore year.) Furthermore, I helped several of my classmates do the same in my classes or other ones they take. Likewise, I am a team player and work easily with anyone, loving to build strong connections with whoever I meet. Not only do I notice my own mistakes, but also the ones of others easily, helping to improve myself and provide useful constructive criticism. recruiting site: https://www.ncsasports.org/field-hockey-recruiting/pennsylvania/harrisburg/central-dauphin-senior-high-school/mikenna-jorich

Camp Hill High School - My name is Lauren Poplaski and I have been playing field hockey for seven years. I train year round and have played for Central Penn Field Hockey Club for three years. If I am not on the field I am playing softball, snowboarding, or spending time with family and friends. I knew that field hockey was my passion the first time I picked up a stick, and I have dedicated an immense amount of time improving my skills and game play. Being a sedulous player and having an open mind to constructive criticism has helped me improve overall as a person and a hockey player. As my coach says I have a “hockey heart” and consistently work to enhance my abilities. I am currently taking two honors classes and have been a distinguished honor roll student since 6th grade. Along with having a 4.0 gpa, I am involved in numerous school clubs including class council, key club, and I am a committee member for Minithon. Additionally I have been an assistant coach to the U9 Camp Hill Field Hockey Club. This gives me the opportunity to give back to the program that introduced me to field hockey and inspire girls to get involved in this incredible sport. These groups have taught me to be a leader and a hard working teammate. I bring an enthusiastic and optimistic energy to the field that motivates other teammates and myself. With that, my capability to encourage and work alongside others is important in field hockey as well as everyday life and this year I had the honor of being a varsity player as a forward for Camp Hill High School. I have played every position on the field, however I currently play on the forward line and occasionally midfield. I hope to play field hockey throughout my future academic years and would like to possibly undertake neuroscience or psychology as my major. I would like to find a college that is the perfect fit for both my academic and field hockey goals.

Over the years I have been involved in swimming, track and field, soccer, basketball, and field hockey. Field hockey has not always been my focus. However, during a field hockey game my seventh grade year I was injured, leaving me on crutches, and missing the season for extensive physical therapy. Through a long journey of recovery was when I found my passion for field hockey. Not being able to play made me realize how much I loved the sport.
