JV field hockey finishes 4-13


Last updated 1/7/2019 at 11:48am

Fallbrook High School’s junior varsity field hockey team posted a 4-13 record for the 2018 season.

“I wish we would have done better, but I had mostly new girls,” Fallbrook JV coach Emily Kooyman said.

The Warriors’ junior varsity had 13 girls, and since 11 players for each team are on the field at a time that gave the Warriors only two substitutes but also gave the junior varsity team members significant competitive experience.

“I was pleased with the progress,” Kooyman said.

Fallbrook posted a 2-6 mark in Valley League competitions with two wins over Escondido to place fourth among the five Valley League schools in the standings.

“We did much better,” Kooyman said.

Enya Nunez and Melany Becerra led the team with three goals apiece. Fallbrook goalkeeper Abigail McCarthy had 97 saves.

“At the end you usually don’t want the season to end because they start playing really well,” Kooyman said. “They’re a great group of girls to coach, very interested in the sport and they all seem to want to learn,” Kooyman said. “They all had really good attitudes.”
