Going into the first round of the Division 2 South tournament, the field hockey team had never even heard of Dighton-Rehoboth High School, never mind how their field hockey team shaped up. But the Indians quickly found out how tough an opponent they had.
Hanover entered the tournament in the 19th seed with a 8-6-4 overall record. Dighton-Rehoboth High earned the 14th seed with a record of 9-6-2. The Nov. 1 game took place on a grass field, which Hanover was not used to. Throughout the entire season, the team had only played on grass in two of its 18 games. Going into the game, the team knew it had to face this obstacle head on and play hard.
After 60 minutes of tough field hockey from both teams, the Indians fell short when the buzzer blew. The final score was 2-0, and the season was over.
Led by Captains Alyssa Wilcox, Abby Hammett and Alesandra Paluzzi, the team should be proud of a great season. Graduating seniors have brought a lot to the program and put in a lot of hard work and dedication to become great leaders this year. We will miss you!
