While it’s quite likely that the members of Pinkerton Academy’s 2017 varsity field hockey team are still feeling a bit of a sting from not at least getting as far as the Division I championship match after having an exceptional regular season, the Lady Astros recently got some positive reinforcement for having had such an illustrious campaign.
Four of the Pinkerton team’s standouts – seniors Carly Young and Emma Davis and sophomores Sarah Collins and Khaliyah Ellis – all received all-state recognition from the New Hampshire Field Hockey Coaches Association.
Midfielder Young and defender Collins both garnered First-Team All-State honors and forward Davis and goalie Ellis received second-team recognition. Young was also one of 20 skilled senior stickers from around the Granite State selected to play in the annual Twin-State Classic match against senior field hockey stars from Vermont next June. Her Pinkerton teammate Whitney O’Brien will also play in that all-star match.
