Field Hockey

Varsity

Overview

Blair’s varsity field hockey team is a strong group of women committed to hard work, success and, above all, sportsmanship. The team is passionate about field hockey, about winning and about each other. Prospective players are encouraged to visit campus and attend a game or practice to see the team in action and witness its culture firsthand.

From September through November, Blair competes in the Mid-Atlantic Prep League (MAPL) and New Jersey prep “A” division, two highly competitive leagues, and plays a number of local high schools, as well. The season culminates annually on Peddie Day, when each of Blair’s fall athletic teams vies with arch-rival Peddie School for the coveted Kelley-Potter Cup.

Many Blair field hockey players have received all-league honors, and athletes have gone on to compete at the college level at schools including Bryn Mawr, Northwestern University, Colgate University, the University of Rochester, Kenyon College, William Smith College, Wellesley College, The University of Pennsylvania and Shenandoah University.

She strives to create a team of confident individuals who believe in themselves, trust each other and play for each other; ultimately, this is a team that will excel and persevere.
