Local resident Lizzy Eskue plays for Team San Diego in a national indoor field hockey festival last month in Virginia Beach.

Lizzy Eskue, a junior at Fallbrook High School, was one of 10 high school girls selected to represent Team San Diego in the USA Field Hockey 2008 National Indoor Festival held in Virginia Beach, VA, March 7-9.

Team San Diego finished first in their pool, earning California’s only championship title at the event. The team competed in the U19 division, with each pool comprised of eight teams. Team San Diego went home undefeated with a record of 6-0-1.

In addition to Eskue, the team was comprised of girls from Torrey Pines High School (Kendra Bills, Sheridan Edwards, Ashley Schlesier, Paige Simmons), Scripps Ranch High School (Andrea Earle, Deanna Kennedy, Ashley Kyle) and San Pasqual High School (Mallory Albini, Nadia Namdari).

The team was coached by Tara Jelley Danielson, former US National Team member from 1998-2005, and Steve Danielson, a 1996 Olympian and USA Men’s National Team member.
