An important aspect of the field hockey squad is the focus on perseverance, respect for self and others, and most importantly, character development. 

Skill Development & Teamwork

Kent’s field hockey program consists of two teams: the highly-competitive varsity and a developmental junior varsity team geared towards those new to or less experienced in the sport.  The most athletic and skilled players compete at the varsity level, but players of all abilities can find a spot within the program.

Leadership & Character Development

Through the pursuit of healthy habits and participation in competitive athletics, Kent scholar-athletes embrace the level of commitment necessary to achieve their individual goals while recognizing the importance of academic pursuits. The continuing strength of the Field Hockey program depends on the commitment of new and returning athletes.

The Kent Varsity Field Hockey team hit the road for their second game of the season traveling to the Frederick Gunn School for a 2:30 matchup. Kent started strong on the offensive end battering the FGS goalie with many shots. On a beautifully set up breakaway it was senior prefect, A Ryder, who dodged the goalie and finally got Kent on the board with a 1-0 lead heading into the second half. Ryder's goal was assisted by sophomore sensation, E Bell. During the half time talk, the girls discussed keeping their width and focusing on the finish during the second half. As they headed back out, they did just that. E Bonner moved up to forward and scored from just inside the top of the circle with a quick spin move and fired a laser past the FGS goalie to give Kent the 2-0 advantage. With roughly 11 minutes left, E Payne collected a rebound and finished with a quick release to give Kent the 3-0 win. Strong defensive play by captain, M Clarke and L. Ferrari held the opposing team scoreless. Sophomore goalie, H. Lineberger picked up her first shutout of the year! Shout out to J. Purtell, E. Cobb, and I. Bowler for their strong play and excellent hustle this game! This weekend the squad faces off against Miss Porters school in their first home game!

Kent was fired up for what ended up being a highly competitive match up between the Lions and the Martlets of Westminster School. Westy immediately set the pace of the game with their quick passing and peppered Kent's goal keeper, Hadley Lineberger, with a number of shots in the first ten minutes. Rather than back down, Kent stepped up to the challenge and answered back with some fast paced defending. On the back line, Morgan Clarke, Izzy Bowler, and Lauren Ferrari worked hard to contain Westy's offense. Emily Bell had an outstanding game with her well timed block tackles. The midfielders, Ryann McDonald, Elise Payne, and Elizabeth Cobb all worked well to channel and communicate. At the half the score was 1-0 with Westy on the board. After a positive half time talk and Kent's signature "fire it up" cheer the squad came out hot! It was midfielder, Emily Bell, who found the back of the net with a beautiful goal, assisted by co-captain, Jenny Purtell, to even the score in the third quarter. Westy answered back with two very quick goals to regain the lead, but with 5:14 left in the third Kent scored another goal off of a corner play. Jenny Purtell had the tip in. Although Westy ended up with the W, Kent played exceptionally hard. Elizabeth Bonner played with tenacity and did an excellent job keeping Kent's spirits high. In net, Hadley had an excellent game.
